Something wicked this way comes!
Black Friday and the powers that be are urging us to get out there and spend ‘til we can’t spend no more.
But don’t believe what our consumer culture tells you, pals: Buying things will never make you happy. You know it and we know it. Sure, that new gismo might lift your spirits for a few hours, or if you’re lucky, maybe even a day or two. In the end, though–and we mean the realend–your connections, your friends, your family, and your human experiences are all you’ve really got. So this year, at a moment in history when the existential threat of climate change is breathing down our necks, why not decide to do things differently? Ignore Black Friday.
