Consumption Isn't The Answer

It's great to have two cars and a swimming pool. But there are disappointments. After you-ve made some money and acquired some things, and after the initial excitement has passed, life goes on, just as bewildering as it always was, and the great problems of life and death once again come to the fore.

We know that consumption isn't the answer, and we ask ourselves what is.
