Have you ever ask yourself if what you have define who you truly are Most people have asked themselves this same question over and over Materialism as Twitchell says in his essay Two Cheers for Materialism is not always bad but to me it depends on how bad a person wants materialistic things In fact nobody needs materialism at all to define who they are as Rosenbaum says in his essay In Defense of Obamas Patriotism As mentioned before a lot of people have asked themselves the same question Although since a very young age most people think of materialism as a way to fit in our society there is a minority who disagree with them I found interesting how Rosenbaums essay and Twitchells essay differ from each other but in the same topic Rosenbaum in In Defense of Obamas Patriotism explains how a person can be patriotic or American without being materialistic He uses President Obama as an example explaining that Obama chooses not to wear a flag pin or put his hand over his heart With this example Rosenbaum is telling us that people do not have to have materialistic things in order to display who they are On the other hand Twitchell believes that materialistic things define what people are and belief He makes his point very clear when he says that we live for things and we change ourselves by changing our things Twitchell 44 George Saunders is a writer in the New York Times magazine He writes short stories essays and childrens books Saunders also wrote this quote You dont want to be that parent the one who dresses his kid in a cloth sack when all the other kids are in Armani cloth sacks - especially in a time like ours when materialism is not only rampant and ascendant the only game in town First of all why should we care what other people think about
