invent butter to put on it and then someone will want it, and so the complexity occurs, and the vices reveal themselves.. It is nature...
Materialism tries to harness those vices and in a futile attempt tries to control it...
my head is startin to hurt..
So basically we are in disagreement here, and I will defend my thread, and you will defend your post and we will never be able to see eye to eye (this
is how things work).
All I know to do is accent your argument against mine. You argue that materialism is a good way to combat negativity. I argue that materialism is in
large part directly responsible for all negativity.
I urge you to re-think your belief and see it from my perspective. I have been subject to materialism, and now that I have broken free, I don't want
to go back, and from the outside looking in, I see how am right for the path that I am on. You may be right for your path, but I warn you, you are on
the path of destruction, which is okay, but ultimately, you will find out that nothingness and infinity are the same and you caused yourself a lot of
grief by being destructive. However, you are likely unaware that you are on the path to destruction, but I assure you materialism and the support of
materialism is an on ramp to the interstate highway of destruction.
Not only that, but I can tell by the emotional context of your reply that this is where you are, and I am not criticizing you or trying to control
your direction in any way except by raising awareness that at this moment, and in this reply, you are acting negatively. Usually a negative action is
part of a greater negative path that seems to have no end in sight, and that is because negativity doesn't have an end. Read my signature.
But back to the issue at hand. My question to you is, do you not see that material things make you look different than me and accent our
individuality in such a way as to distract us from the fact that we are actually the same thing as human and as nature? Being at one with nature is
something special that not many people get to experience, and this is why I'm being so blunt with you. I just want you to get on the same page as
me, because the weather is nice up here, and I want everyone to experience that intense joy for being alive that I do.
