In a startling sign of the impact that humans are having on our planet ... 2020 marks the point when human-made materials outweigh the total mass of Earth’s living biomass.

      Indeed. Make stuff. Sell stuff. Buy stuff.

      Consumerism is the idea that increasing consumption of goods and services purchased in the market is always a desirable goal and that a person's wellbeing and happiness depends fundamentally on obtaining consumer goods and material possessions.

      How to move past Consumerism?

        Pandemic helps us to do it:

        • Move out of cities
        • Remote work
        • Use self-made and organic foods
        • Be minimalist
        • Remove all types of Ads from our life
        • Live for happiness, not for money
          I believe the new type of human is more fool than old ones!

      Absolutely. How to apply the brakes and change direction?

        I don't know.

        Sometimes I feel there is hope with the people that surround me, but then I see how others live and I just lose all hope.

        Also, maybe I'm just as guilty for having 5 kids 🤷🏻‍♀️
