Well… perhaps the problem is that the prices you see do not match your values? And if so, what is causing the disparity and what is the solution?
I’d suggest that more and more indicators of our inner thoughts aren’t bought but are linked to through “likes”, BTL comments, and other ways of virtual recommendation. And many of these inks are to free stuff (Cat&Girl for instance). I’m not sure whether that makes a difference, as we’re still defining ourselves via externals, but at least it’s not tied to consumerism and maybe a bit less destructive.
Not sure what irony is, but this comic convinced me to donate.

As a musician I’ve spent countless hours discussing why people don’t come to shows. For the longest time we were sure that it was a local issue, but are realizing it’s a national value shift. The things people got from the live performance are secured through other media. Or at least that’s the best we can come up with.
