Go forth and consume  FEB 25 2004

Paul Ford on the word "consumers":

The word "consumers" makes me sad for this world. Whenever someone tries to convince you of advertising's nobility, remember that word -- the industry looks at you and sees not a human, but a gobbling creature with money to spend.

I can't recall where I heard this, but my favorite definition of a consumer is "a wallet with a mouth".
