Society will become a system of passive consumption of spectacles.



Guy Debord : Critical theorist
Published in 1967, The Society of the Spectacle gave a remarkably accurate prediction of a media-centered, image-dominated future society, much like the globalized modern world of today. Debord very insightfully described the twenty-first century society dominated by social media, consumerism, and neoliberalism.
