Qualities and Quantities of Things Under Capitalism
Demonstrate your grasp of key sociological concepts by finding examples online that help to illustrate sociological concepts based on a set of ‘scavenger hunt tasks.
Both George Ritzer and Arlie Hochschild identify ways that our lives are organized under capitalism so that things we might normally think of as qualities get measured or reduced to quantities. Provide an example of this. Your example in the case should be something like a news story, an opinion piece, an image, a gif, a meme, a blog post, a tweet/Twitter thread, or a clip from a film/series that can be viewed on Netflix, or a short video (i.e., some kind of online content), but not an excerpt from an academic journal article, police report, or book.
