Consumerism is not evil in a free market economy for it spurs continuous growth.
Smart consumerism is when consumers spend sensibly without generating excessive non-collateral loans like credit card debts and personal loans.
Ignorant consumerism that has its roots in personal and corporate greed, and irresponsible predatory market behaviors is like quicksand that devour anything that falls into it. Ignorant consumerism provides immediate gratifications but inflicts great pains in the long run.
Indulgence in so-called shopping therapy is the start of being an ignorant consumer.
