To think otherwise is plain stupidity.
Materials keep people out of poverty. Not materialism.

My point is why should death be any different than life. Death is a physical process.

If you say death is spiritual, life must be also.

"Materialists" want to keep ALL the materials under their control, so they can profit from selling them at the highest possible price. They conspire to acquire, for their own personal increase in wealth. This limits the available supply, and creates the impoverished sector of the economy. Anyone who can't afford to pay them the money they're so desperate and greedy to have, or is unwilling or unable to work for them as expendable, subservient wage-slaves, earning as little as they can possibly manage to pay them, they consider to be entirely "useless", and unworthy of any consideration or respect.

Narcissists want everything under their control.

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

I don't see why wanting more stuff for yourself beyond your basic needs is seen as a bad thing.

It doesn't make sense to pursue spirituality when we live a material world. If I can touch, see, hear, taste, smell this world that is material... then I want to do what I can to enjoy how I how I sense this world.

I have no senses that allow me to sense any other dimensions or planes or spirituality.
You are already in "spiritual" world. This particular realm appears physical to you because you are on the matching frequency with it. To touch, see, hear, taste and smell different realm you would need to change your frequency and it would appear just as physical as this realm, the only difference would be in density. But remember, selfishness and greed will lower your frequency so after this life you may end up in lower realms (also known as hell realms). Yes, there are even sh!ttier places than this one. On the bright side, you may meet your hero Ayn Rand there.

Don't believe me? Check out the first hand experiences of people who astral projected there.

If you don't want to be a slave to materialism then kill yourself. I'm not saying that you, specifically, should. I'm saying in general. To be alive is to be materialistic. To dead is to be one with the spirits. If you want spirituality instead of pursuing material possessions and see no use for them and see no point in enjoying them, then seriously just kill yourself. What's the point in living a life of materialism if you don't believe in materialism.

What? Just because we're saying you're Spiritually impoverished and on the Materialistic road to H*ll?

Yes. .

And I'm not going to hell. And Ayn Rand didn't go to hell either.

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

People who want minimum wage don't understand that it ultimately makes poor people poorer.
