We shall be judged on junk
Millions of people in the world and in the USA go to sleep hungry daily and Americans still buy nonsense daily.
I do not want to be judged on how much stuff I bought and did not use, or bought and stuffed in closets and attics.
God forgive us for greed, for that is the sin behind stuff.
William Morris, in The Beauty of Life (1880) said, "If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
