Benjamin Barber's Consumed: How Markets Corrupt Children, Infantilize Adults, and Swallow Citizens Whole argues that ever-expanding capitalist commercial culture taints everything, marginalizing family life, religious life, and civic life, and reducing citizens to mere consumers whose private market choices give them what they want, but fail to.
