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 starts 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
