    Ah yes, consumerism at its best!! Society has lost the art of ‘contentment’ – just to be content with what we have. We want more, we want better, and we accumulate stuff and clutter in our homes. Less is more in my view….more space, more time with family, more freedom from debt, more joy. And one of my favorite quotes is, ‘Live simply so others can simply live.’ We have to live on this earth with a heavenly perspective in mind.

  3. Wow. Just watched the footage you linked in this post and I was appalled. Maybe it’s pregnancy hormones, but this seriously put a lump in my throat simply because it so resembles political riots, and the stampeding terror that accompanies incredible disasters. These are people who are so confused about what constitutes need and about what matters in life that they are frantic, frenzied, terrified… to miss a deal?! These same scenes are playing out in places where this behaviour is a desperate plea for change in their country, where people are fighting for something real. And I’m not saying I’m immune to consumerism or anything, but this certainly does lend some perspective to my Christmas purchasing this year. As usual, thanks Ryan for posting.
