Check out entertaining yet profound cartoon documentary "The Story of Stuff", which lays out the ugly realities of  our misbegotten love affair with consumption and its parasitic relationship with the rest of the world.

It points out many of the fundamental and inescapable problems built into American lifestyle patterns and the myths used to rationalize them for the sake of Big Business profits. There's nothing "efficient" or "practical" about the way we live, or the way the world's resources are managed today under Neoliberalism. Quite to the contrary, it's a broken system promoted by dangerous idealists who impose onto the rest of us pie-in-the-sky ideologies that ignore scientific realities and and fraudulently universalize their own narrow, unsustainable interests.
