Buy Nothing Day

Whatever we buy, we own. Whatever we own, owns us.

Today is what is commercially known as Black Friday. It’s the day after Thanksgiving. It is not uncommon for people to form lines outside of retail establishments for the big sales that are happening now, today. Retailers are ringing a bell, just like doctor Pavlov, in the hopes that we will come running when we hear the bell.
