Bubble of Affluence

#concept #stub1 mention

A bubble of affluence is a community of (relatively) wealthy individuals and groups, whose affluence hides the negative aspects of the world from their personal experience, thus masking or hiding their Privilege.

Creating bubbles of influence is an essential Strategy of Consumerism: it makes it hard for people inside the bubble to detect this Ideology as such in the first place, rendering it invisible to them.
