We buy stuff. Too much stuff. Stuff we do not need.
Does every kid need a cell phone AND a laptop AND an Ipod?
Do parents get these items for their kids just to shut them up so they do not have to interact with their own children? And then we wonder why a lot of kids are just walking around with their heads down sending 5000 texts a month.
Where does it all come from?
How is it made?
What resources and people have been exploited in the making of cell phones. Ipods, laptops, or even T-shirts?
Does the government REALLY have our best interest at heart? Or are they more concerned with the well being of large corporations?
Isn’t it interesting that a lot of minimalist bloggers tout the benefits of their Macbook Pro and Ipod Touch. They travel a lot apparently. What is the environmental impact of all this travel?
If a person were a true minimalist would they not explore the impact of all these electronic devices and all that travel?
