Every era gets the drug it deserves. In America today, where competition is ceaseless from school to the workforce and everyone wants a performance edge, Adderall and other prescription stimulants are the defining drugs of this generation.
Dr. Wendy Brown,
How might your life be better with less? Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life -- families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker -- all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less.
We're not going to ever be able to achieve the environmental gains that we're seeking, while still expecting our lives to be the same. We're going have to give up a lot. The secret is that a lot of that we're not actually going to miss.

I think the concept of Minimalism is an interesting idea, but the documentary is more of a promo for these guys who are profiteering off the back of an idea which is not their's. They claim to reject the tenets of the American dream, yet paradoxically are becoming immensely rich off the back of it. If you swapped minimalism with any other product, you'd quickly see that these guys are basically just crafty salesman. Hoping you'll buy not into minimalism, but their sales pitch for their book. It's smart, but transparent. I learnt literally nothing about Minimalism, this documentary has little or no insights. It's really just a pseudo documentary. The tiny segments with people like Sam Harris, that broke up this 'documentary', almost seemed to have been forced in to give it some weight and credibility. Pathetic. These guys remind me of Preachers!! only in America, do people fall for this utter nonsense.
