    ...for me to buy into the whole "we" meme.

    I understood that about 15% engage in the black Friday. so why is it "we" who are doing it?


    "Our society" is more accurate. there are a sizable group of people who opt out of what you are complaining about. this group is ignored by the media, and also by some on the left who like to make sweeping generalizations.

    In this community, however, I bet "we" are not really all materialistic drones, so why tell us we are? It's an annoying rhetorical device because it implies you do not understand your audience!

    Overall, I agree with the point of the diary tho.

    tipped and recc'd.
