Description

Earlier this year, the World Economic Forum released a video introducing the concept of "Own Nothing and You will be happy." Explaining how in the future we will rent most of the items we need to live. As technology improves, we won't need as many materials goods we can downgrade our lives and experience a better world in the digital space. At first, at face value, the idea sounds great. Life is about to get cheaper, more convenient. Every experience will run as efficiently as getting a package from Amazon Prime. But if you dig a little deeper, you realize this concept of owning nothing will make us happy is a lie.

Should we be less greedy? Yes. 
Should we work to become less materialistic? Of course.

But we can do those things without some world government entity taking away our money, our land, and ultimately our bodily autonomy. They claim a carbon tax, a wealth tax, a capital gains tax; the list goes on... are the solution. All well, they travel the world in their private jets, emitting more carbon than you could produce in a lifetime. We all want cleaner oceans, clearer air, and a beautiful planet, but no one wants to be lied to on how to achieve that.
