As members of society, we are bombarded with information on a daily basis and much of this, we receive subliminally. We, as consumers, become the driving force behind this economic rat race which we find ourselves living both consciously and unconsciously. The lines between what we are conditioned to want, and what we need, are blurred and it escalates into dissatisfaction distancing us even more from the genuine reality. When are we just consumers? And how do we become responsible global citizens?
