I’ve been reading through the archives over at Droningon.com, which include a lot of opinion pieces based on the over-consumption and over-commercialization in our modern world. One sentence really stood out from all the others, though:
“Nothing wrecks the joy of consuming like nagging guilt.”
I encourage you to read the piece, which focuses on sweatshops and how we, as consumers, rarely think about where the products we consume or purchase come from. This very thing is one of the reasons that I became vegetarian.
The “nagging guilt” got to me.
