The Story Of Stuff

Here's a great narrative on stuff, or something we should all watch before we decide to buy anything.


And here's a dreadful revelation from the people that make us buy, buy, buy and buy:

"Our enormously productive economy... demands that we make consumption our way of life, that we convert the buying and use of goods into rituals, that we seek our spiritual satisfaction, our ego satisfaction, in consumption... We need things consumed, burned up, replaced and discarded at an ever-accelerating rate."
Add this on the fact that we have limited natural resources and you will know that we are headed for trouble.
