What are the real costs to a society that appears to reinforce and perpetuate materialistic values? Is this “GOOD LIFE” worth the damage we cause to self, others, and our planet in the neurotic pursuit of material goods? Is this “GOODS LIFE” really a good life as prioritizing materialistic values seem to negatively impact our happiness, relationships, and overall well-being?

Take a few moments here to reflect on this discussion offered by psychologist Tim Kasser. The animation highlights both the problems of excess materialism (consumerism) and points toward more intrinsic solutions that promise a healthier, more just, and more sustainable life.
