  •  Consumerism has created the super- (4+ / 0-)

    capitalism. Until people stop wanting and buying all the crap the money makers will never curb their growth or greed. Why should they stop? When the demand stops then capitalism will slow down.

    As with all solving of problems it has to start at the bottom-oneself.

    Attacking the top is wasted energy. They are too big, too entrenched and you, we are too small.

    Start with controling your own buying bad habits, encourage the people around you to do the same and so on and so on.

      Americans can't think beyond the shiny object in the store window. Fortunately, I can and I do. That's why I'm not in debt up to my elbows.
