minimalism’s critics | mnmlist

Minimalism hipsters can seem very silly when their minimalism is expressed through buying junk from Apple and arranging it on small desks that leave no room for pen and paper and then considering that they’ve made a breakthrough by streamlining their lives or something. But this post is interesting. While this particular author likes to write things like “that’s so zen” and describes a margharita pizza as “the most heavenly substance in the universe: love”, I was pleased to read this latest post in which he claims the root of his movement to be anti-consumerism, and being very anti-consumerist myself, I’m pleased to have his type on board.
