Minimalism is for suckers

  • You can’t repair your shit because you lack the tools
  • You cannot help out your neighbours, teach your kids
  • You have to rely on external service providers for everything
  • You un-learn how to to things yourself
  • You are unprepared for emergencies
  • It fosters short-term thinking
  • You own stuff to use it. Not owning stuff means not being able to do stuff
  • You make spur-of-the-moment decisions and buy bad products because you have no experience with the tools you need
  • Division of labour is great and all; sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands
