totally agree (looking at all stuff including few computers i built / repaired entirely from what i found in trash) consumerism is bad. it is bad for the future of our planet. it is bad for the future of us humans. the future of one or another economical system is plain unimportant

Yes. This is anti-consumerism. But consumerism drives economies, and right now governments are borrowing money, to spend it, to kick-start (they hope) another round of consumer-based economic growth... Nice idea, but difficult to implement. E.g. how many people are happy to deal with non-disposable diapers? How many people want to drive the same car for 30 years? (with you) L

Well, it is actually better to buy new cars that don't polute the air so that much... About the diapers, yea, that is a nasty job... But, to me, it is more about the small thing we trough out because they just stop working or get old when they can be fixed, some easely some with help, some can be hacked....
