… is from page 3 of Brink Lindsey’s 2007 book, The Age of Abundance [1]:

American capitalism is derided for its superficial banality, yet it has unleashed profound, convulsive social change.  Condemned as mindless materialism, it has burst loose a flood tide of spiritual yearning.  The civil rights movement and the sexual revolution, environmentalism and feminism, the fitness and health-care boom and the opening of the gay closet, the withering of censorship and the rise of a “creative class” of “knowledge workers” – all are the progeny of widespread prosperity.

Russ did a podcast in 2009 with Brink on this book [2].
