The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.”
Amazon apparently had more than a billion dollar in sales on Prime Day, which lasted 30 hours. Really?
The most popular items sold were smart speakers, tablets, 4K TV screens, programmable pressure cookers, DNA ancestry tests, Whey protein powder and “Game of Thrones” on Blu-Ray. Exactly what I needed, not.
When do we realize that this mad consumption does not make us one iota more happy, free or healthy? To the contrary.
I am happy to report that I have spent zero dollars and more importantly zero seconds on trying to buy anything on Prime Day.
Have a grand day out.
