Consumption

Jean-Jacques Goldman says it’s not “I think, therefore I am” anymore, it is “I have, therefore I am” (“Les Choses”).

Isn’t it sad that today it is widely thought that what you own represents you? What a pressure!

How the hell am I going to represent myself with things?

And the need to communicate through possessions has led to excessive consumption. Buying what you don’t need, buying and accumulating, buying and never using.

 

Song of the day: “Satisfied Mind”- Johnny Cash

“But little they know that it’s so hard to find

One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind”
