I would suggest that recently our society has become one of consumers rather than producers and the ultimate consumer just sits on his tail and consumes. Producers go to work and any consumption is done to allow for production plus a bit of recreation. Now the consumers want to consume items that require production to obtain. The idea is to force the producers at gun point to provide such items such as nice houses and luxury cars and steak/lobster on the table. The problem is the producers are getting tired of it.
