• the same possessions
  • made by people doing identical things
  • with identical machines.
  • There’s a price to equality. The way our lives have to become extensions of the production line.
  • We work together
  • we holiday together
  • we sit in the same traffic jams
  • we wear the same clothes
  • we live in the same house
  • we drive the same car
  • we have the same ambitions.
  • Nothing that I own is unique.
  • That’s the price of watching the clock.

Nor would there be such an emphasis on mass culture. I guess the internet really has changed things.
