After decades of promises about how capitalism and consumerism will make us all gloriously happy, we still aren't. Now at the end of consumerism we need more and more just to feel normal. But they tell us we just haven't bought enough yet.
What about the billions of people that do not live consumer lifestyles? Is it not possible for them to be happy?
What about the majority of history in which humans survived with few material possessions? The way this 50 year old scam has been presented to us no one has been blissfully happy until the advent of the shopping mall.
It was a lie from the beginning. It is quite possible to be happy with less. In some cases, much less.
Consumerism is a total failure. Continued participation is an exercise in futility.
Still not happy? Simplify now and avoid the rush.
