For Buy Nothing Day:

 The 10 Commandments Of Buylessness

 As Revealed To Reverend Billy

 

See you today at Union Square in NYC! Dance Your Debt Away at 3pm!

Music and all the fun you CAN'T buy!

 

And now, the Commandments:

 

 

THOU SHALT

Forgive people, yourself and everybody else. We all shop too much.

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Know your Devil. Shoppers are only dancing in the land of ten thousand ads. Consumerism is the system. Corporations are the agents of the system.

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Respect the micro-gesture. Magicalize the foreground. Fore-go the plastic bag and grab that bare banana – Amen!

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Practice asking for Sweat-free, Fairly-traded and Locally Made products. That's the rude that's cool.

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Buy less and give more. Giving is forceful, the beginning of fantastic new economies.

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Buy local and think global. Love Your Neighbor (buy at independent shops) and Love The Earth (walk to, bike to, mass transit to – the things you need.)

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Citizens can buy or not buy, produce or not produce. We can change to a sustainable personal economy. Then corporations and governments will change.

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Envision the history of a product on a shelf. Workers and the earth made that thing. Resisting Consumerism is an act of imagination.

 

 

 THOU SHALT

 Complexify. Don't be so easy to figure out. Consumers tend to regularize.
 Shopping at big boxes and chains makes us all the same. Viva la difference!

 

 THOU SHALT

 Respect heroes of the resistance. A small band of neighborhood-defenders who staved off a super mall with years of protests? Beautiful.

 

 

 

 It's our turn now. CHANGE-A-LUJAH!
