Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

November 26th — Buy nothing — Stay home — Stay strong

November 26th — Buy nothing — Stay home — Stay strong

Our rituals are all co-opted. One day after gathering with family to give thanks for a harvest to last through the winter season we devolve into a banal commercial excess.

It's retail carnage and it's time we bow out of it — create our own rituals. Buy Nothing. Pack a lunch to work, and if you work in retail don't even show up! Don't let anyone guilt you about letting the team down — Black Friday is hell for retail workers! So take a sick day. And if you can't manage that... work as slowly as you can. Let the line-ups stretch out past the parking lots until the shoppers realize, "hey, why am I even here?" and they go home too.

Have you been eyeing that TV for a few months and want to snap it up when it's cheap? Why? So you can watch more ads for more TVs? If it's so important, it will wait. But asking that question, "can I resist consumption for just 24 hours?" That's urgent if we're to have any kind of sane sustainable future.
