Minimal Possessions – Living out of a backpack « The Urban Minimalist: "In our competitive, materialistic society it is, “I have therfore I am.” Possessions give you idenity and security. To be someone in someone else’s eyes you need things. Freedom isn’t freedom unless it is the freedom to get rich. All of this reinforces an antisocial, criminal mentality. We care about things instead of each other. How did we get this way? Isn’t this the devil’s work? We need to restore some balance to our lives. There is much to learn."
