Are we becoming a prey to a big devil called consumerism?
Do you think people have been swallowed up by the evils of consumerism? Are we constantly being incited to buy beyond our means or when we do not really need the product? Understand the concept of consumerism and how to avoid its deadly trap.
In this society, we are losing our identity as a person and are instead viewed as just consumers. We are so mad about buying things which offer freebies or are at low cost that we don't even think twice about our decision whether it is useful to us or not. It is a race where we need to be first in getting a newly released product. We are attracted by advertisement and enticement that the manufacturer of a product promises and tend to buy things which are of no relevance to us. For example, on the release of Apple iPhone series, the people were so enthusiastic about it that they started booking for it from months ago. Isn't it a form of consumerism that they are just attracted by the advertisements?
Have you ever become a victim of consumerism? How did you escape this trap of buying things?
