by Dean Henderson, Featured FarOutRadio Columnist – (Excerpted from Chapter 6: Mercenary Shopping: Stickin’ it to the Matrix)
Shopping for frivolous and unnecessary items consumes way too much of most people’s time and budget, while chaining the new owner of this junk to a cluttered garage, a storage unit and general sedentary misery.
Still there are certain tools and entertainments we wish to procure and there are many good ways to get them other than at a store.
Again it is all about attitude. You must develop a resistance to shopping. It should be viewed as morally reprehensible. When you need to attain an item, do your research and find out where to get it at the best price, preferably – except, I would argue, in the case of electronics – used. Remember, the system has declared war on your family. Don’t shop much. And fight like a mercenary of the revolutionary army when you must shop.
