There is a new local magazine being distributed for free in New Orleans. It's supposed to be a fashion magazine for the men of the city. Painfully light on content, heavy on the advertising. Another pile of paper is clamoring for my attention. I support the
idea of creating new things for people to read. I support the independent press and the circulation of new ideas. I have no use,
however, for more propaganda for shopping culture. I would say that our mental space has enough advertising in it already.
Our heads are full.

I am very fortunate to make a good salary and be someplace where the cost of living is not too high. I really don't need very much
that I don't have already. I am tired of everyone telling me I need more stuff. This system keeps us in jobs we don't like, doing
things we don't agree with and living out of balance with our nature.

First off, I’m writing this in a personal capacity. Nothing I say here reflects the views of my employer. Second, I’m writing this from the perspective of someone who reads a fair amount and thinks about these things. I’m not a doctor, or positioning myself in any way as an authority on these issues.

I am someone who saw the meltdown of one city firsthand after Hurricane Katrina and watched the US government struggle to assist people in need. I was also teased unmercifully for my many years of over reaction every time there was a hurricane near the city. But you only have to be right once.

I will be updating this and adding links as I think of more.
