'The Almighty Dollar'

We made it through another Thanksgiving Day, which is one of my favorite days of the year.  But that is followed by three of my least favorite days, "black Friday", "small business Saturday", and "cyber Monday".  They are not my least favorite because I dislike small business, but because corporate capitalism has overshadowed the meaning of Thanksgiving.  Our society has an obsession with the almighty dollar.  It rules everything we do and everything that we are about.  I am all for making a decent living in order to pay my bills, but for crying out loud, do we have to spend every minute of every day thinking about making more money, all year long?  Can't we take a break?  We count down the days between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas by the number of shopping days between the two holidays.  That is really sad.  But what else can be expected from a corporate capitalistic society such as us.  We have a lot to be thankful for, but, personally, I do not think that corporate capitalism is anything to be thankful for.  We, as a society, need to change, for the better, and we can only do that if we can escape the suffocating grasp of corporate capitalism.
