the good consumer...?
okay. so I know I might appear to be the super "anti-consumer" with a lot of the information I post on here...
I sit in humility to the reality that I purchase all the time...I buy into the branding...and I buy things that I want.
that said....videos like the one shown at the bottom are not recommended to cast guilt, fear, or hatred towards capitalism...they are merely avenues in pursuit of reflection and/or challenge.
I think its important to check-in on capitalism.. to check-in with our values.. and to ultimately create a stronger awareness for what is good and what isn't.....
personally, I measure my morality to that of Jesus....thus, my questioning and frustration with our purchasing power rests in one question...
"does love, grace, peace, and forgiveness play a part in my spending?"
check out this video..its good.
