Consumerism is a social and economic order and ideology that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-greater amounts
Planned obsolescence
or built-in obsolescence in industrial design is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so it will become obsolete that is, unfashionable or no longer functional after a certain period of time
i feel that consumerism is justifiable in the event that resources are satisfactory and no disparities exist, otherwise i view it as a societal evil where people who can afford increase their consumption at the expense of others
planned obsolescence is a societal evil, the producers aim to gain big from consumers by rendering product life span manipulatively
