What will happen if many people start following minimalist philosophy?A person who does not spend unnecessarily and manages with the minimum facilities is known as a minimalist. Generally people having money and capable of affording an expenditure will generally go for purchasing it. They will not suppress their desire to buy and enjoy the luxuries.
A minimalist can be financially rich also but he will not go for worldly luxuries citing that we should not consume more and limit ourselves within the limited means. The minimalist believes that there is sufficient resources in the planet Earth to support the humanity only if the people use it sparingly.
It is interesting to note that if more and more people turn to this minimalist philosophy then there may not be any shortage of material in the world. At the same time if the consumption decreases the industries may suffer and job prospects might nosedive. This may lead to a sate of depression also.
What do you think - is being minimalist is good for the society? What will happen if more and people start living like this? Members, please share your views on this.
