I agree with Marx’s theory on Capitalism. He mentioned how capitalism itself puts social living aside making everyone become interested in materialism. Which bring us to the idea of Fetishism, and object which is believed to have supernatural powers, power over people. We’ve seen Fetishism play out for centuries and is still present in the modern world. This is inevitable, unfortunately we see this on a regular basics. Media and advertising has made this possible over the years, From promoting the latest phones and gadgets to the perfect make up or weight loss programs. We are set to believe that materialistic objects such as a phone is essential in our everyday lives, we’re so dependent on not only having a phone to be able to contact one another but to also have the latest edition of the phone. if you think about it the idea of a phone was for fast communication purposes, yet we’re so caught up on having a phone that’s 700$ than the one that’s 100$ just because is a expensive brand.
