  1. Upright Citizen

    Ah that designation as “consumers who actually buy things” as desirable normative status. If only I could purchase that one last item being targeted to me, I could achieve my place as rightful citizen in the world, full of pride that my shiny new covetous object is safely within my grasp. No longer will my peers laugh at me or treat me as a dullard, for I am a consumer just like them, full of verve and zest derived from my pleasure at purchasing something, and belonging to a community full of upright citizens in our modern society. I awake each morn safe and secure, and declare proudly to the world “I buy things.”
