As a true believer in ‘free markets’ and no ‘public/private’ co-operatives which exist only by tax dollars…it pains me to agree that events like ‘Black Friday’ and all of it’s relatives are not a good way for consumerism to exist. It’s just another bubble which encourages otherwise respectful human beings to behave like self centered infants. Holidays should be about giving, celebrating and spending time with family or loved ones. The Holidays should be about enjoying these moments, not stressing out and spending so much money that you spend the rest of the year to pay off the debt you’ve accumulated, just to do it all over again.
How are you spending your holidays this year? Share your favorite ‘holiday’ thing with me and anyone else who happens by this posting.
Yours In Truth Shelly
