“In the early 20th century the problem of production had been solved; after that it was the problem of consumption that plagued society. In the 1050′s and ’60′s, consumer commodities and farm products began to pile up in vast towering mountains all over the Western World. As much as possible was given away– but that threatened to subvert the open market. By 1980, the pro tem solution was to heap up the products and burn them: billions of dollars worth, week after week.
Each Saturday, townspeople had collected in sullen, resentful crowds to watch the troops squirt gasoline on the cars and toasters and clothes and oranges and coffee and cigarettes that nobody could buy, igniting them in a blinding conflagration. In each town there was a burning-place, fenced off, a kind of rubbish and ash heap, where the fine things that could not be purchased were systematically destroyed.” “Solar Lottery” by Philip K.
