The West is starting to long for owning only the core necessities. Oh, our households are so overwhelmed with overpriced useless clutter. We are complaining about the frustrating abundance of choices.
New movements are being launched to advocate the new elixir of happiness : BACK TO THE BASICS, THROW AWAY THE WESTERN WELFARE AND POSSESS AS FEW ITEMS AS POSSIBLE.
Newly-born western minimalists are boosting about leading a fulfilling life by owning less than 100 items. Their pioneers have managed to get by only with 50 things…….
I have a bad news for us, my friends. We lost this contest long ago.
The Third World has the competitive advances in this aspect. Their whole society has been structured based on our so-called minimalist conception.
So, my minimalist fellows, catch up with the Third World and learn to live owning only the core necessities.
This abundance is really frustrating. In this maze of choices the West can even opt for downsizing.
