Find it incredible to think that people in this day and age are still brainwashed by consumerism. Sure, people wanna look nice and stuff; but you don't need to break the bank to do so. Don't let a logo define you.
People working their asses off, and breaking the bank just to get themselves in debt over a car that drives the same as one for 100th of the price. Thousand pound watches that tells the time just the same as one that costs 20 pounds.
In America in the "roaring 20s", this is when consumerism became a thing. It's modern day slavery, you may agree with that you may not.
Why you ask? Okay well.... who owns your workplaces?
More often than not it's the rich. They also own the clothing lines and car lines that you spend that hard earned money on.
So no matter what you do you are investing it back into THEM. They created credit schemes so that YOU can keep on buying from them, and you end up paying MORE due to the credit schemes and the interest they add on (which btw, they don't even have to do). How is it slavery?
Well, you are giving your time, the precious small time that you have in this life, for an idea; that idea being money.
Ask yourself... How often do you actually lift your money out of your bank? Online shopping; contactless; chip n pin; you are selling your precious time for something you cannot touch or see, to buy things that will not give you happiness. The clean white freshness of those new shoes will soon get dirty; that fresh new car smell will soon cease to linger; that shiny new watch face will soon become scratched and dull down.
The fact is..... the more debt you have, the more you need to work, and the more you work the more sad you become, and the more you need material goods to give you that on the surface satisfaction that will soon die.... it's an endless cycle of buy more, work more, LIVE LESS!! FuCk that shit!! There's a great big world out there. Prioritise your time, Prioritise YOURSELF!!! ☭☭☭ #fuckconsumerism #endcapitalism #materialgoods #brainwashed #nologo #marxism #meansofproduction #bourgeois #elites
