Is the I generation the cause of the culture of excess?

When I thought the review of THE CULTURE OF EXCESS, am my first thought I was the right person for this book? It took knowing only a few minutes and pages that I would be good for this book, because I thought the book was much more than what I expected. Dr. j. R. Slosar for me, but mostly this book written in a way, the easy to follow and understand. His goal seemed not far away from what I had tried, in a sense, last couple of years before my retirement, to do in a classroom as a teacher for the and, it was the young people to understand that their excess was very damaging to them and society as a whole.


With our country in a financial crisis, we see the lifestyle, which has taken over the largest part of our lives, the cause of most of our problems be egocentric. As Slosar refers to the "I" generation need, on a "we" work generation, he explains how this is the cause of our problems. Hit by the economy is so hard, the lifestyle, in which we live, that this book like this has happened and you change what needs to be done, we are on this dangerous path.


Dr. Slosar States: "the changes in the development of today's youth are deep profound as the interaction of the economic and social trends have influenced significantly self-control and how we define success." He continues to speak, like the ideas in this book, stop and change what it happens and how can we all learn, better decisions, and have more positive results.


I had discussed not about this excess of caused some of the problems in the book. I could see financial end it where we come as a society want to, what we want and go about it get with regardless of cost to us or to us. This leads to more than just good, although they are a big part. It has also to do with the fatal rise in obesity in our country and, if I sat back and thought about, now, of course, that makes sense! I thought about what he is about to say was as, which has to do with other social and health issues such as drugs, increase the unnecessary cosmetic surgery, and so many other mental health issues. As a teacher I saw students home and psychological problems got worse every year, and I asked me what was going on to make these children such problems. The ME society! Think about it! It makes all sense in the world.


Dr. Slosar is what is this culture of exceeding create and it is used however it with humour and clarity, so many excellent examples in real life situations so that the reader understand and relate to what he has to say. He goes to descriptions and history, which helps to see the reader, is the reason of our society in the mess, the we in are. The Organization of the book chapter, with the first of the "cultural narcissism" and go on from this Declaration in chapter examples that explain why things are they way they are is very easy to follow. The problems that occur when using the technology in such unhealthy ways are explained in a chapter titled Slosar "digital coping: loss, reality and self-déception". The fact that it recognized the problems, but instead only write about what they are and as it happens, contains a spark also as they can be treated everyone to give that reads the book hope that we can undo this. His most important goals for all these problems come from capitalism is out of control (no kidding!... but we hate it admit) to a "consumption overload" forces technologies and media will cause. The problems go down the risks and so out of control as we are still so much in material things has not led us to satisfaction and good health. Therefore in favour of it, we must rethink success really means which and how we can get at this point. How should we allow them Government, a solution to our problems and it, to do its job properly, especially in this deregulation certainly has helped not. Our health must be better and there is so much in this surplus, which has made so unhealthy us in more than just overweight, but also mental disorders. And finally, parents must raise their children to take more responsibility and set limits on their behavior. Children will thrive honestly much better when they have to go by in their lives and rules and regulations.


The case studies and examples of Dr. Slosar are only more proof of what he is about when it comes to peer pressure from children and to adults has written. The pressure on the "right labels" and "work right" have lead to more mental health problems and financial disasters seen than ever before. It is almost common sense, which this is done, if you read this book and stop and fate can have on you personally and how you you and people will have in your environment. THE culture of EXCESS-how America lost self-control and that is why we need to redefine success is a thought provoking must-read for those, a better life and society for themselves and their children, and part of a "we" society want to be at last!
