You can accumulate many things: sick time & vacation time at work, wealth, frequent flyer miles, and of course, THINGS!!!
Some people are rich, some people are poor. Whether you have accumulated many THINGS in your life or not, ask yourself this…is it worth it?
Watch the following video and decide.
(Video of shoppers on Black Friday, a shopping day in the U.S. where stores have huge discounts on their THINGS)
Of course, since I am an animal lover and advocate, the very first thing I thought of when I saw the word “accumulate” was a previous post of mine called Manufactured…Computers, Toys, Dogs, Furniture, Clothes. There are so many THINGS being manufactured for our consumerist society that it has even come down to animals being treated as THINGS to produce so someone can accumulate more wealth (breeders). Or they are given hormones so they can grow faster and bigger so someone can accumulate more wealth (factory farms).
Hurting other people to get a good deal and treating animals inhumanely to consume more of them. Is it worth it?
