A one word description of American culture might be “Moar!”

But consider what Epicurus had to say:
Quote
If you wish to make Pythocles rich, do not add to his store of money, but subtract from his desires. -Epicurus

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
R. Buckminster Fuller
