Hello! I've been taking a German class about American culture this semester, and this word, Konsumterror, has come up a billion times. I've written many definitions of it in my notes, including: consumerism, media circus, forces of the market, and black mail... What does this word really mean?! I'm not necessarily looking for a direct translation, of course, but I'm thinking that there's got to be a more concrete definition than the four I've written down. Help? Thanks!
