Fun != Consumption, you arse.

Add air travel to the List Of Things tony blair hopes can be fixed with technology... Blair defends long-haul holidays

"The truth is all the evidence is that if you use the science and technology constructively, your economy can grow, people can have a good time but, do so more responsibly."
"Truth"? What is truth? According to Blair, continuing to make as much cash as possible is the only truth. The mistake he makes is equating - no, bonding - "good times" with consumption, when in actual fact that's not a necessity at all. I have an extremely good time relaxing, or sleeping, but does that mean I should spend while I do it?

With people like this at the helm, we're doomed to Hell.
