  • Consumerism as a mechanism of social control : an outline of social harm
    Simončič, Katja, 1987-
    This article examines social harm that occurs as a result of the opiatisation of society through consumerism. The concept of social harm is introduced, as is the phenomenon of consumerism, followed ... by a description of how consumerism acts as a mechanism of social control. Pemberton's (2016) classification of social harm (physical/mental health harms, autonomy harms and relational harms) is subsequently used as a theoretical framework for the analysis of social harm that occurs due to the fact that consumerism acts as a mechanism of social control (Scheerer and Hess, 1997). An analysis of social harm indicates that consumerism is a source of social harm as classified by Pemberton (2016): a victim of social harm is an individual who, subjected to the forces of informal social control in the form of consumerism, experiences deteriorated health, anxiety, depression, feelings of loneliness, apathy or even turns to criminal activity.
