a multitude of uniform, unidentifiable houses lined up inflexibly, at uniform distances, on uniform roads, in a treeless communal waste, inhabited by people of the same class, the same income, the same age group, witnessing the same television performances, eating the same tasteless prefabricated foods, from the same freezers, conforming in every outward and inward respect to a common mold.—Lewis Mumford The City in History, 1961

I drive my car to supermarketThe way I take is superhigh,A superlot is where I park it,And Super Suds are what I buy.Supersalesmen sell me tonic—Super-Tone-O for Relief.The planes I ride are supersonic.In trains, I like the Super Chief.—John Updike Superman, 1954

They are not the workers . . . in the usual . . . sense of the word. These people not only work for the Organization. The ones I am talking about belong to it as well. They are the ones of our middle class who have left home, spiritually as well as physically, to take the vows of organization life.—William Whyte The Organization Man, 1956

Critics of Conformity

[The middle-class suburban child] “learns to conform to the group almost as soon as he learns anything.” [Such children grow up valuing] “fitting in” [with their peers far above thinking for themselves or striving for individual achievement.]-- David Riesman The Lonely Crowd

Television was nicknamed the

“idiot box”

and called by poet T.S. Eliot

a“medium

of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the

same

joke at the

same

time, and yet remain

lonesome

.”
