Buy Something Day

British friends, today I urge you to go out and buy stuff. It doesn't matter what, just anything will do.

Why?

Today is marked by the crazies as Buy Nothing Day in your part of the world (and Japan). Yesterday was Buy Nothing Day in the U.S. and Canada (my neck of the woods).

But don't worry, you won't be alone. I will go and buy stuff here in solidarity with you. Maybe some garbage bags, maybe a cup of tea, maybe a hat or a scarf, or this t-shirt. Hey, every day is a good day to enjoy capitalism.

  1. Their website says "only 20% of the world population are consuming over 80% of the earth's natural resources"

    But what these fools forget is that the same 20% are producing over 80% of the world's wealth!

    Still, it is worth noting that libertarianism is not related in any fundamental way to "consumptionism." One can be a libertarian and still consistently reject the fetish of consumption prevalent in Western culture.

    The article is so wonderful that I want to write something about myself.
    I get a lot of rohan crone and the rohan gold is very important for anyone who wants to play the net game. Most of the rohan online croneis the access to the net game. If you have the rohan online gold, you can make good use of the rohan moneyto enjoy yourself in the game.
