I usually love the background music most minimalism videos have, they are so calm n relaxing. Like please just stop talking about how liberating it feels to stuff your underwear into your sock and just let me listen, goddamnit.

Did anyone else had the impulse to buy something from amazon after this documentary? I swear that it looks like they were sponsores by Amazon.

This minimalist trend is one of biggest BS I've ever seen in recent years. ISpostrs go: "Look at my minimalist closet", and the guys shows like 50 shirts, 30 pairs of shoes, 25 pairs of pants... Dude, if you're a minimalist, you would 7 shirts, two pairs of shoes and two pairs of shoes.

Almost all the faux minimalist I encountered look down on people who buy stuff even if it’s a need. They just like shoving their minimalism down our throats.

This wasn’t a doco about minimalism it was a doco about The Minimalists in identical terms as the last doco!! So boring and disappointing. LOVED your video to know I’m not alone in my disappointment. I recommend the documentary The True Cost if you want to learn more about the dangers of fast fashion and consumerism generally, and of course Marie Kondo for a how to of minimalism.

I mean minimalism in theory is kind of obvious things we kinda knew already. “Material things can’t buy happiness” etc It’s like Yeahh I know that. But I’ve always been poor so I’m pretty sure if I were rich I’d be pretty stoked

It reminds me of the saying "money doesn't buy happiness". It comes across as patronizing and happiness isn't that simple. If you need a doctor, shelter, food, etc., yes money can buy happiness. Minimalism can cross into the same propaganda, excusing the decline in wages and assets. The movement became popular because younger generations are facing lower standards of living than previous decades.

6:00 I actually went to a a church where we had a substitute pastor and the entire time, bragged about how big his house is, how beautiful his wife is, how great his new tv was, the amazing parties he hosted. He stretched a 3 minute song to 15 minutes just so he could flex his singing ability in a solo that consisted of the same 8 words for 10 whole minutes. My whole family just got up and left when he started another verse
