Camille Veri, '14
Philosophy major and Film Studies minor; Columbus, Ohio.
On the Ethics of Consumption:
"There are ethical dimensions to decisions we make in everyday life whether we're aware of them or not. Becoming conscious of the fact that our actions as consumers have global consequences is essential to fixing the issue of overconsumption that exists in society today. Where is the line drawn between consuming and over-consuming? What can we do to consume in an ethical manner? Why do people spend more than their share when they know they already have enough to keep them comfortable? What are the motives that keep society on this detrimentally materialistic path? We cannot expect to continue with the consumption habits of our current consumerist culture. It is completely excessive, unfair, and unsustainable. It is imperative that my generation fully grasps this ethical issue so that we can make steps to change future consumption habits and lessen the socio-economic divide that exists in the world today."
