Bubble of Affluence

1 note links to this note.

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 the dominant consumerist Ideology: it makes it hard for people inside the bubble to detect ideology as such in the first place, rendering it invisible to them.
