This is an absolutely fascinating read from a blog I’d never heard of before until an excerpt was posted on Minimal Mac. It hits the nail on the head so far as one of our world’s most intractable challenges goes:
We’re more interested in convenience and immediacy than responsibility and lasting value.
From our homes to our digital devices, ours is a culture obsessed with immediate benefit, regardless of the consequences. We forsake our future for the present, while we disavow our role and play at being powerless to make a difference.
I myself am struggling to strip all the unnecessary crap out of my life, all the while trying not to succumb to the next thing that will suck away my money, time and life energy.
