Anti-consumerism is idpol. Stop this circlejerk, stop psychoanalyzing "commodity fetishes" which always arrives at a different conclusion every other month and never makes predictions or brings you closer to oemthing actionable. Focus on whats important ind indisputable and universal: Harder work, less free time, less pay. More surveillance, more state violence, more reactionary vigilantes, no action against environmental collapse. All of it connected to outmoded relations of production. Focus on that, focus on applying basic ML theory to all the happenings around. Cultural critique like this thread is and has always been the bane of useful analysis.
If the eastern bloc mass culture would've stayed as drab and stagnant as it was, then yes. Imagine some good union guy programmer worker in the soviet union of 2020, raised on a steady diet of ML slogans and for-fitting overalls being the sexiest thing hes ever seen. And then somehow he goes online and gets past the antifascist firewall and discovers an onlyfans for the first time? Dude it would be over before it even began.
