I digested the staggering statistic that 80% of products were made to be used only once & then considered that sex appeal is used to market so much of that trash - and then followed that train of thought where it led - and, well.... you don't want to go there either.
Anyhow, I just tho't to share one conclusion that No Impact Man & I have both come to. He says it well after realizing & pointing out that at any given time, we all want something & when we get it, we just want something else. This perpetual cycle prompted him to ask...
"If we want to demonstrate our membership in the human race, if we want to fit in, where on earth did the idea come from that we have to do it by having or aspiring to have exactly what everyone else has .....?"
& to conclude that ...
"We'll do, or can be tricked into doing, almost anything for the promise of love."
And that's it...that's basically what prompted my previous post. Sorry if I sounded harsh - or rude - or offended anyone. It was purely out of concern about our "get whatever you want when you want it by using sex appeal to buy and sell almost all of it and throw it away when you're done" culture and the impact it might have on my girls who stand in stark contrast to it based on their commitment to remain sexually pure.
I guess No Impact Man and all his "trash talk" is having a rather deep impact on me ....& I haven't even finished his book yet!
Perhaps I should take a break and heed Philippians 4:8:
—think about such things.
