"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."
--From American Mania: When More is Not Enough, by Peter C. Whybrow M.D., 
published by W.W. Norton & Company Inc.
