Anti-Consumerism - Lemmy

anti_consumerism is a community for discussing and critiquing the consumerist society we live in. The community uses an anti-capitalist lens to reflect on our own patterns of perpetuating capitalist values in our own lives and discuss alternatives. Kill the capitalist in your head. Rules - Strict adherence to Lemmy.ml’s CoC. - No debating or concern trolling capitalist arguments. There are other places you can do that. Our discussion start with a presumption that capitalism is inherently unethical. - Cryptocurrencies are not anti-capitalist alternatives to consumerism. - No “holier than thou” attitudes. We can’t judge others needs/ability to survive the material reality of capitalism. Inspiring someone to consume less is more important than shaming some dude’s Funko Pop collection. Ideas for Content - Articles and essays critiquing consumerism. - Instructions to repair or DIY goods instead of buying them. - Alternatives to consumerism (gift economies, mutual aid, libraries, sharing, etc) - Self reflection on consumerist habits and personal growth in moving away from consumerism. - Propaganda and memes that inspire people to consume less.

I’m pretty new to lemmy, and created a community to reflect a topic I like to discuss: anti-consumerism. I’m hoping it’s similar to /r/anticonsumption on Reddit, but with a strict anti-capitalist lens and less shaming.

If you want:

  • Articles and essays critiquing consumerism.
  • Instructions to repair or DIY goods instead of buying them.
  • Alternatives to consumerism (gift economies, mutual aid, libraries, sharing, etc)
  • Self reflection on consumerist habits and personal growth in moving away from consumerism.
  • Propaganda and memes that inspire people to consume less.

Then, !anti_consumerism@lemmy.ml might be a community for you!
