Ideology as consumerism

In my teens I would live vicariously through the media I consumed. In my twenties, I'm living vicariously through the ideas I read about and the online communities I join.

Attaching myself to labels like #solarpunk #surveillancecapitalism #anarchist #metamodern (& previously, #effectivealtruist #singularitarian) is just another way to add meaning to my life without doing anything meaningful.
