A fondness for really loud noise comes to mind. Loud car radios, power tools such as leaf blowers, vacuum cleaners etc. deliberately made noisier to imply more power, mandates that trains blow whistles that can be heard for 10 miles in all directions at EVERY SINGLE street crossing the tracks 24/7, the examples go on and on.

In general, I say consumerism to the extent that it's an addiction, called materialism, from the philosophy of the same name.
