A Warning Against More Things

I highly recommend this essay I found recently: The Tyranny of Things.  Though it was written in the late 19th century there is much wisdom here.  It seems particularly relevant now as matrialism so engulfs our culture and hearts during the "gift giving season."  In short, it shows us that more posessions lead to more trouble and anxiety rather than less, though the latter is our hope.

  1. Hi Lee. I just came across your blog. Good to see that others are covering this sort of material! I just started up a similar blog ( to discuss many of the topics you have here. I haven't read the article yet but I have it pulled up in my browser. Thanks for all your thought on the subject - hopefully we can have additional dialogue! - Aaron
