"Drawn forward by debt, desire, or both, Americans are emerging as the
first addicts of the technological age, driven still by some ancient
instinct for self-preservation that in our time of affluence is misplaced.
. . .It is in this blind pursuit of material prosperity that Americans have
begun to push the boundaries of human adaptation, as is evidenced by rising
levels of greed, anxiety, and obesity."
