The $575 Teepee Proves That Capitalism Really Has Gone Insane

The $575 teepee symbolizes how insane capitalism has become. We're furiously mining every last resource on the planet, pumping pressurized liquid and gas into its darkest recesses, so we can fill our homes with more stuff we don't need. Whatever happened to building a fort out of blankets? Instead of worrying about whether your child will miss out on the teepee trend, shouldn't you be worrying about whether he or she will be able to see the sky in the future? In China, where most of the world's future-garbage is produced, they're already watching sunsets on giant LCD screens because the heavens are obscured by smog.
