The minimalist argument

December 27, 2010

So, the basic argument for minimalism is essentially this:

We’re on a work/shop/spend treadmill.  We work so we can buy stuff, and with that stuff, achieve happiness.  The problem is that stuff doesn’t help us to achieve happiness. Playing with our friends and family and thoroughly exploring our world achieves happiness.  So the minimalist buys fewer things; thus leaving her with  less need to work, thus leaving her with time to explore her world and play with her loved ones.

The problem is that once we hit “UN AGE CERTAIN“, this is what it’s like when we make time to hang out with our friends:

A man and a woman greet each other.

Man and woman converse.

And this very question is why minimalism, which is supposed to be all eco-friendly and stuff, ACTUALLY leads to overpopulation.

Man and woman commence making of the lovins.

    Yummmy, being a minimalism leads to a more “personal” lifestyle.
