John Gray Proves His Case

In the last essay (The Society of the Spectacle Revisted) of his book Heresies, John Gray makes his point [bold added] and validates his own argument:

In societies in which affluence can be taken for granted by the majority of people, the core of the economy has come to be entertainment. Cars are still bought as means of transportation and books on the supposition that they contain useful information, but in each case they are sold on the strength of the new experiences they promise.

Quite. I shall retch now.
