A lack of a sense of autonomy, as portrayed in the Century of the Self could easily lead to passive stances. Increased passivisation by for example, engineering of consent and suggestibility most likely leads to increased “forced utilisation behaviours”. If it is there, you must use it, do it. Think of internet and smartphones. And because of less personal responsibility, to notions of “being exposed to forced utilisation behaviours” to lack of will power in the sense of self-control and self-motivation, but not in the sense of acquisitive greed and desire to manipulate, both of which increase consumerism.
