Today's post is edited: I tried to share a video of people brawling over merchandise on Black Friday. But for some reason the link didn't work. It's funny but sad. Funny that grown people will stoop to such means to get stuff; sad that grown people will stoop to such means to get stuff. (The video and more can be found here.)
Our never-ending quest for material goods has led us to a culture of greed and violence. One way to combat this disease of affluenza is to participate in a media fast. Stop watching television and reading magazines/newspapers. The advertisements that fund the media (and promote the products of companies that OWN the media) are designed to foster a feeling of lack. Eliminate the feeling and you're cured of the disease.
