I’ve been under the impression that modern life is rubbish for quite some time now.

Increasingly, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is not just rubbish but that there is something far more sinister about the direction our society has been lurching towards.

Perhaps that is why I found myself nodding enthusiastically as I read this excellent article on the Complex System of Pipes blog.

On the day that Manchester United revealed healthy profits and had the analysts purring about the business success of one of the beautiful game’s biggest club, it is worth remembering that the unbelievable wealth that has swamped the world of football has also brought a much darker side with it that has spread out into wider society.

The aspirational nature of modern life has divided the nation. Modern life isn’t just rubbish, it is irreparably damaged.
