The world after consumerism….


‘There must be more to life than having everything!’ ~Maurice Sendak

So what\’s next? What happens when the debt entrenched masses decide that they no longer \”need\” another Abercrombie shirt or that their house already is to larger? What happens when the youth decide to avoid consumerism and the lifestyle of debt that accompanies it?

What will our society look like then?

In a conversation with a good friend the other day, something was raised to my attention

~ Have you ever noticed that in our society we are always spending money?

For years I have said, we live in a glutenous world of finite resources, but I had never actually broken it down. To do nothing in our society…actually costs money! Wether you own or rent, cook in or eat out, ride public transit or drive yourself. In the most basic of examples, if your refrigerator is on…you are spending money!

We are always consuming!

Presently, I feel like as a society we are procrastinating/masterbating ~ in the end we are only f*$&ing ourselves…or is it the future generations we are really sticking it to?

Sorry for the crude comment above…but it is seriously time to implement sustainable change! I could rhyme off some odd adages like \”There is no time like the present\” or \”When is the best time to plant a tree? 100 years ago. When is the second best time? Right now!\” But all I really want to know is ~

What will motivate you?

Lets just say a shift of consciousness occurs. Lets just say sustainable living becomes a moral priority and in turn becomes a political priority. Lets just say politicians are actually ready to implement sustainable policy…


Please comment with your ideas!?! I want to know what you are thinking and truly believe that we can do this! Hell, we HAVE to do this!

Thank you for reading and make it a good day, Stephen
