The first strength I saw in Jacoby’s essay was her credibility. Credibility according to The Saint Martin’s Handbook, is “You can show that you have some personal experience with the subject” (Lunsford 166). The author sites her own experiences on the subject by providing the audience with her own personal story relating to the topic at hand. One example where the author does this is in the introduction of her essay she reiterates, “They were on their way to the bedroom when, having realized that she wanted only the man who wasn’t there, she changed her mind” (584). In this snippet it shows Jacoby’s using her own personal event to demonstrate knowledge about the topic, to show that she has first-hand experience with the relating material.
In a consumerist culture people cannot decide what to purchase, instead social standards decide what direction all have to follow. Individuals even in a state of zombification are looking for self-definition in the shopping mall. The commodity fetishism empowers the capitalist system and allows the individuals to live a utopian fantasy of autonomy (Bishop 2010: 247). People believe that they are free when they buy an object of their desire. However, in a sense they indirectly fall victims of exploitation, which is the purpose of the bourgeoise (Bishop 2010: 247).

They say that this may be considered prostitution because poor women could be exploited. Surrogacy is compared to the marketing of human organs because it is “basically the renting of wombs” (Dougherty, Charles J).
When we purchase the product then we are letting the companies manipulate our sense of control. As part of a consumer economy companies are focused on conditioning consumers to purchase and re-buy their products. Ophelia is the consumer who is trying to conform to the images she sees, whereas Polonius is the company demanding her to purchase the products and achieve that standard of beauty. Ultimately, both the women and teens who are the consumers and Ophelia will fail to reach their perceived potential. Both are set up and are doomed to fail due to the unreasonably high
Our everyday tasks are broken down into smaller tasks until they are broken down to its ultimate simplicity. Weber viewed traditional and charismatic forms of society as irrational, and had mixed view on the development of capitalism and western forms of formal rationality because of ht epossibilities o development and his concerns of being free individually causing the lack of exercise in ones rationality. This relates to McDonaldization leading into irrationality rather than rationality because of the overeationalizaing processes in our society leading to this negative effect. Ritzer developed Weber 's idea by identifying and discussing four to six concerns with the McDonaldization of society. Discuss each (6) and give examples of how each occurs in our society.
