Fight Back - Observe Buy Nothing Day Today



Today is the designated day to fight back against obsessive consumerism, Buy Nothing Day. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Like me, you can fight back by not buying anything you don't need 365 days a year, or you can start small on this one day, then extend it from there.

The little guy in the picture has it right - he was not born an obsessive consumer. 

What does he want? 

Only what any unspoilt human being wants, like food, clothing, shelter, love, education, and total freedom from the evil manipulation of mentally ill money hoarders.

If I had kids, we would be out celebrating our freedom to buy absolutely nothing today. 

Just like advertisers say that you "have to get them young", we should be thinking about starting our little activists out while they still have some free brain left in their skulls.

None of us are consumers. We have been formed that way against our will.

Stand up today, buy nothing, and proclaim "I am a free person. I am not a puppet of the rich and powerful, and I will not obey their command to buy, Buy, BUY."

Today is for authentic living, free from the consumer world.

Have a good one.

    Brilliant poster! I wasn't tempted to buy anything today. I deleted the black Friday ads from my email and went to a climate change rally instead. There were lots of lovely 'persons' there, and whilst I was walking home I met some new neighbours who live up the road from me. We got chatting and I've invited them over for a cuppa. Radical! Turns out they're not 'consumers' either ;-)

  2. Love it. I am not getting sucked in by the insanity of the Christmas hype. Yes I do celebrate and yes I do decorate (most crap I inherited) I love the food, the family, but gifts are things that will be used, read and loved, or even treasured. Will not be buying anything today, maybe a soda. But I do have to go order new carpet.

  5. I joined in on buy nothing day, felt liberating to see all the ads and offers and not feel the temptation!
