参考范文The increasing variety and procurability of household goods has been recognized as an unstoppable trend, yet argument regarding its necessity or rationality seems not to be ceased. In fact, many believe that such excessive growth is merely a reflection of the profound influence of consumerism, of which I second.
The intension of cyclical consumer products industry was upstanding: to fulfill various demands and create a better and more convenient living condition. Driven by this vision, the scale of this industry soared in the last century, and managed to add various household appliances, ranging from traditional ones such as washing machines and electrical tin openers to stylish devices such as flat-screen television and sweeping robots, into our life. Indeed, these items allow us to pay more attention to other important aspects in life, and also plays a significant role of a country’s economy, which will then assist the promotion and popularization of these merchandises. This circulation runs smoothly for years, until the rise of consumerism.
Consumerism refers to an ideology that encourages the acquisition of goods in ever-increasing amounts, which will eventually make customers purchasing items related to the display of status and not to functionality or usefulness. With its influence, consumers may end up sacrificing significant time and income not only to purchase but also to actively support a certain firm or brand. Needless to say, this behavior should be acknowledged as a direct contradiction to the original purpose of having more household goods, as such considerable amount of these articles, sometime quite expensive or even luxury, may highly likely capture people’s full attention.
Without disdain the benefits brought by household goods, it may not be wise to possess as many these goods as possible.
