I added the book Evasion to the "Popular Works" section. It's a great book by a self-described freeganist hobo who travels the country dumpster-diving, hitchhiking, shoplifting, and train-hopping. I am in the process of improving the article on the book itself, which kind of sucks at the moment. It contains a lot of copied and pasted (albeit public domain) text from —Preceding unsigned comment added by SuperEditor (talkcontribs) 18:41, 25 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The PM developed by Inglehart does not reject consumption, it simply reflects a set of values that FOLLOW in the wake of materialism. It has nothing to do with Naomi Klein or the rejection of capitalism. I am removing it from the template and the template from the Post-Materialism page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:25, 26 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Who made this thing?[edit]

Can anyone tell me why productivism belongs in the anti-consumerism template? That makes no sense to me. I'm thinking it had to have been a vandal. Jiminezwaldorf (talk) 14:48, 1 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wondering the same thing about why social democracy is in the template. --Sharangir (talk) 04:13, 24 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is Wikipedia and anyone can change anything. I was thinking that the words "consumerism" and "anti-consumerism" often have the same meaning. Blue Rasberry (talk) 00:33, 4 July 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template image[edit]

Thank you for selecting a wonderful image to accompany this template. I feel that it accurately portrays the sentiment. Gobonobo T C 05:32, 5 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Anti Consumerists[edit]

Why are people like Cobain and Biafra in the template.There are countless anti consumerist musicians we can include into this.I will delete all musicians from the list, unless someone can give a proper explanation about those inclusions.--Catlemur (talk) 14:20, 22 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Agreed. That would be a good approach. bobrayner (talk) 00:08, 3 November 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template: People[edit]

The ‘people’ template serves the purpose to introduce individuals that are connected to Degrowth. This could either be people that started and developed the idea or people that contribute to its discourse today. However, most of the people listed are not directly linked to Degrowth at all and seem to be connected by nothing but political popularity. Therefore, the template loses its original purpose. Hence, I suggest to only leave individuals that really are connected to the theory and idea of Degrowth (surely there are more than I know of) MaKnowledge (talk) 11:22, 29 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
