If gas was cheap enough I would drive nothing else, built to last and some.

Existing scientific research on the value of materialism yields clear and consistent findings. People who are highly focused on materialistic values have lower personal well-being and psychological health than those who believe that materialistic pursuits are relatively unimportant. These relationships have been documented in sample of people ranging from wealthy to poor, from teenagers to the elderly, and from Australians to South Koreans. Several investigators have reported similar results using a variety of ways of measuring materialism. The studies document that strong materialist values are associated with pervasive undermining of people's well-being, from low life satisfaction to happiness, to depression and anxiety, to physical problems such as headaches, and to personality disorders, narcissistic, and antisocial behaviors.

The master consumerist maker and his propaganda machine, where it all began to gather pace.



I prefer making many of the very expensive consumerist tools myself, that are very expensive indeed but not very good quality, one must have the highest quality, chosing cheap quality is part of the Bernays ways of buy and throw away, THE, main attribute that is helping to harm the environment in so many ways.
