Reader warns against rampant consumerism

WITH Christmas Day still weeks away, we are already bombarded by manufacturers, advertisers and retailers to buy their products.

Screams of buy, buy, buy, get one free, or no need to pay for years are on radio or television and the advertisements entice the populace to do just that.

I believe in the words of one wise man who stated there was enough in the world for all man’s needs but not for all their greeds.

How sad to see the lemmings of society trapped into purchasing things they don’t really need.
