The Truth About Consumerism And The Season Of Giving

Much can be said about the holidays, both positive and negative, but one of my favorite things about this time of year is witnessing the ubiquitous beauty of capitalism creating small moments of joy in people’s lives.

There’s a lot of pessimism about consumerism, but the exchanging of gifts strengthens bonds between family and friends and is a boom for the economy as well. There are countless businesses that earn a majority of their income through holiday sales, and this annual competition for the interest of shoppers has undoubtedly been a force that has driven innovation for generations.

It’s not just malls that are packed either, many non-profit organizations and charitable causes raise more than 50 percent of their revenue during this time of year, as people feel more generous. Small businesses and content creators like myself often see an uptick of subscribers and book sales as well.

The spirit of giving is a powerful force for good.

Of course, all of us are at different stages in our quests for financial freedom, so this season can understandably be a time of pressure and stress for many. Fortunately, there are now more opportunities than ever for those who feel trapped by their circumstances.

Whether your problem is debt, unemployment, or just golden handcuffs, financial independence is, in many ways, more achievable in today’s world than any time in history.

A new frontier of economic freedom and personal liberty is waiting to be explored by people who have the courage to step outside of the conventional paths that were laid out for them in government schools. For example, there are countless opportunities in the crypto world for all skill sets, even despite the recent bear market. It doesn’t even matter how much technical knowledge you have, since several less-technical positions are needed as the industry grows, such as journalists, community managers, marketing experts, graphic designers, or mechanics.

Cryptocurrency is just one example of an industry that is growing to serve a need that governments and their privileged cartels are failing miserably to serve themselves. From alternative medicine to disruptive tech, there’s plenty of room for workers and investors to get involved.

There’s nothing wrong with earning money.

In fact, if more anarchists start getting wealthy, we’ll be much better equipped to slay the leviathan of statism once and for all!

Money is really just a representation of the flow of energy, and it seems that people get the wrong idea about money because we live in a statist society where the flow of most energy is incredibly toxic and tainted with violence and control.

In a totally free market, the fruits of our labor would not be squandered on wars and walls by control freak politicians, and our energy will instead be pointed in a direction that creates value in our communities and our own lives as well.

If you want to build wealth and have as much control over your capital as possible, you can get the most trusted insights at both Cryptopulco and the TDV Summit, where our unparalleled lineup of experts will equip you with the latest inside knowledge on blockchain technology, investments, entrepreneurship, politics, and more, for four days and nights among the sun and beaches of a world-class resort.
