Humans must be.. stupid?

we spend money we don't have
buying things we don't need
to make an impression that's not permanent - on people we don't care about. why?

    Shrikant, I’m not sure reality checks ever really work in favor of transformative change. I am aware that, as people, we reach plateaus in our own evolution. I don’t want or think we need the opposite of obsession or an obsession towards anti-materialism. I’m not sure I’d go so far as labeling it Pro-Socialism but I think the proper method would be to elevate and feed what we do believe in rather than what we’re against. However, backing away from what we don’t align with any longer can propel a spinning motion forward into what we do align with. I like Camilla’s question because it confronts a hallmark of modern society.

    Interestingly enough Liz, when have reality checks ever worked in favour of a transformative change.? Adding to your question of obsession with consumption, Do we need the opposite of obsession OR Do we need obsession towards anti-materialism. Is it the same as Pro-Socialism.?

    This is the question of the age. Why are we so obsessed with consumption and image? What is the opposite of this obsession? Why is image so important and impressions? Some people care but do the people that care matter. Hmmmm. You have me thinking. Do you think the companization and the greenhouses have the ways and means to promote a shift from a more materialistic society to a waining materialism? I wonder.

    With specific regards to the rising crisis within growing cities for food STUPID could well translate to Some Times U Prepare In Despair…

    Time for a really hard look at what could be staring us in the face…sooner than we think.

    Perhaps what we have been taught to value.

    Why…. Because we may not know any other way at all. Do we.?

    Maybe it is because we do care about more people than we think..? Or, maybe we believe that more people care about us, than we think?
