From Radical Glasgow (UK)

           The mad season of Christmas is fast approaching when the corporate beast demands you buy, buy, buy, any old crap, just get out there and spend. Our CEO and shareholders need you money. However with logjams at the ports, lorry drivers in short supply, shortage of workers for the abattoir, not enough farm labourers to get the crops in, empty shelves appearing in supermarkets, you might do yourself a favour and give all this insane consumerism a miss by necessity. After all why run around looking for what isn’t there and then buying even worse crap just to get “something”. You could have a wonderful time with friends and family without all the exchanging unwanted crap for unwanted crap.
         I’m sure you know how to enjoy yourselves without the stress levels of running ragged scooping up their bubblegum and popcorn crap. Have a merry giggle with your mates and let the corporate world worry about all that crap tinsel, pretty boxes and tinfoil left on their shelves. True friends don’t need all that razzmatazz money spending insanity.

The Following words of wisdom from Not Buying Anything:  

        Consumer Christmas 2021 is on permanent backorder.
“Sorry for the inconvenience – your consumer lifestyle is out of stock.”
       Also, Santa’s elves, reindeer, and wife are all on strike for a living wage and better working conditions.
       How about a little box of freedom this holiday season?
       Nope, sorry.
       Also out of stock.
       It is shaping up to be our first ever global Buy Nothing Christmas.
       It probably won’t be our last, so we are going to have to figure out how to do it without excessive shopping being the focus.
       A good time to give the simple and free gifts of love, compassion, and forgiveness.
      They are all still well stocked, but so far are not flying off the shelves.
      2022 is shaping up to be very naughty indeed when we find out that we are out of everything.
Including patience.
