The Logical Conclusion Of Consumerism?

Recommended Posts

This story reminds me of something I read by Dale Carnegie - I can't remember exactly but something along the lines of 'would you sell your eyes or say one leg or arm for a million bucks ?' This kind of thinking can make one realise how transitory we are and how far we have become separated from the things in life that are important.

I'd also like to say that for me these objects are becoming less important (and yes I've got lots of them). I tend to desire them and then hardly ever use them. For instance I recently purchased a tablet pc and now wonder why I bothered. My laptop is used in preference all the time. The games on my first Nokia lcd screen mobile were played more than all of the games on my subsequent phones combined. I feel sorry for this kid because I understand his desire to own these things but not at the price he paid. A very sorry tale indeed.
