The Consumption Disorder
The Consumption Disorder #consumerism #work #money #shopping
This world is run by neurotic minds (the mentally deranged)
As most of us know we live in a consumer driven, disposable society, we’re brought up to fuel the capitalist machine (being plugged into the system)
We go to work to make money, we are conditioned (groomed) to be good little spenders , as my partner say’s ” we go into debt for a car that we drive to work” isn’t that insane! and buy things we don’t really need and that don’t make us happy long term feeding our (egos) desires of wanting more,
At the cost of our environment (our souls) which gives us life and sustains us (as I’ve mentioned in previous posts we are living apart from nature)
We work (slave) our whole lives (for what?) to make companies and banks richer,
Humanity is lost, lead astray, far removed from our instinctual natures (we are broken)
Are we pacifying ourselves with this false sense of happiness (that we get from buying things to fill ours houses) covering the wounds of our lost identities and deeper longing for meaning of who we are as human beings?
How to unplug: live simply, be self sufficient, be informed question everything! (get back to our roots)
