The I don’t need it, I don’t want it, get out of my face revolution


Maybe it’s just me but I need to ask: is anyone else not only tired of, truly exhausted by the sheer numbers of people trying to make money from every facet of our lives?

So many so called health gurus, education experts, lifestyle experts… Even people writing books to show us how to show our kids how to use Lego once they are tired of their kit style. Can’t we downsize for ourselves? Can’t we create and innovate for ourselves?

What is happening to us?

Today, I feel like one of those characters in those predictable Hollywood movies where in one day, a man has to face a job loss, wife leaving, kids moving away, car repossessed, locked out of all bank accounts and savings and he just goes mental and rejects society.

Today, I want to go mountain woman and reject capitalistic consumerism and this society that just wants to make money out of every aspect of my daily existence.

I don’t need anyone to tell me how to do anything or everything. I can do it for myself, and I don’t need to make myself poor making another person rich.

  1. You couldn’t have said this better, you nailed it! I agree wholeheartedly. I find that everything has been over done, done to death, done too much, and it’s all about GREED and there are just too many people vying for not enough resources. I totally agree, it’s depressing but to not admit it, only lets it happen even more so I am glad you said this, because people need to realize, big populations cannibalize themselves.

  2. “Experts” I can ignore. Books I can NOT buy. Television shows I can mute, turn off, or change the channel.

    I hate it when it’s “personal” – someone I know (or not) in a face-to-face encounter who wants to tell me how to do things ‘better.’ I’ve managed to live for 55 years without ‘their’ help, I can manage for the few more I’ve got.

  3. I successfully avoid many of these intrusions, but I nevertheless wish the phone would not ring. Just a weak, human moment and then BAM! Hard sell switches on. It doesn’t matter how many times you tell them no, they can survive on that one idiot in a thousand that falls for it.


  4. Amen and Hallelujah to this. We have a No Cold Callers sign on the door, have unhooked our landline (everyone uses our mobiles anyway) never pick up unknown numbers and refuse to watch most TV now.
    Laughed out loud in a bookstore at a tome aimed at saving me money which cost £20. Ah, the irony.
