Wohlfühleinkauf

Die Ölplattform in grün gestrichen
und auch das Atomkraftwerk
sieht gleich viel besser aus
einen Bierkasten für einen Regenwaldbaum
und jede gekaufte Schokolade
rettet ein hungerndes Kind

Früher war’s viel schwerer als Weltverbesserer
jetzt reicht zum Glück
die richtige Kaufentscheidung
und dein schlechtes Gewissen als Kaufargument
hält die Wirtschaft weiter am laufen

---

Shopping with clear conscience

The oil platform is painted green
and the nuclear plant
looks much better alike
buying a crate of beer
keeps a tree in the rain-forest from being cut
and buying a chocolate bar
saves the life of a starving child

Back then it was much more complicated
to be a revolutionary
but now you only need
to make the right buying decision
and so your guilty conscience
keeps the economy afloat

---

Combining capitalist economics with human or ecological conscience is just another way to sell products. There’s no way to eliminate the problems connected with the capitalist mass-production as long as profit is more important than human needs.
