Follow my blog with Bloglovin Dear followers, Today I am reminding myself and my readers that Christmas is all about love and peace. Christmas was taken over by Christians, but it is actually (before christianity or catholicism) Yule that we are celebrating, or the Winter Solstice. Because after this longest night of the year, the … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
Very interesting thoughts this morning: yes! We must say NO to the overconsumption.
It’s about time we stop buying all these crappy things that are being pushed down our throats! That coke you’re drinking, that meat you’re eating, it’s killing you slowly but surely.
That new I-phone? Why do you think the kids of the producers are not allowed to have one? Because it infecting our brain, causing tumors. Almost everything the giant lobbies and industries want to force upon us is toxic. So the only way to stop them and to make them rethink our current society is to stop buying all this crap. Silent boycot works!
Look at all how it’s already changing! A lot of supermarkets are now refusing to distribute certain products and invest and foods with no added sugar, no meat, no gluten, etc. Yes, they are still pushing us to consume too much, but this is their habitual way of coping with boycot, they adapt the products to regain their market share. Silent boycotting works.
Re-integrating free values, such as spending quality time together, smiling, hugging, respecting each other, animals, nature, that’s what we need to do. Not saying that we should all start hugging, but we can spend our time differently. Instead of ravaging all the stores end of the year to celebrate Christmas with tons of gifts and too much food, we can celebrate Christmas for what it used to be: a time to be together, help the poor, be loving and kind and sing songs together, being thankful for the winter season and the spring that follows.
Think about this today, when you’re nearly pushing the “BUY-button” on that Black Friday sales website! Do you really need what you’re about to buy? Will it make you truly happy?
“Mangez ceci, c’est meilleur pour vous. Achetez cela, vous vous sentirez mieux. Allez voir ça, ça vous plaira. Il vous manque ce truc pour être vraiment génial. Il vous faut ce machin pour être aimé de vos collègues. Procurez-vous ce bidule, vous serez plus belle. Prenez un crédit, vous serez plus riche. Offrez-vous ça, vous serez heureux. Partez en vacances là-bas : c’est tendance. Consommez comme ça : nous savons ce qui est bon pour vous… Ecoutez-nous. Ecoutez-nous à la télé, dans la rue, dans le métro, à la radio, dans votre boîte aux lettres, dans vos journaux, sur internet, dans votre boîte mail. Ecoutez-nous, et consommez.”
Vous en avez marre ?
Nous aussi, eux aussi, elles aussi, moi aussi.
