Minimalism to me is just another way of pushing The Great Reset nonsense. Own nothing and be happy about it.

Listening to people who 'got everything they dreamed about' telling their lessers to stop reaching for their shelf gives off clear noughties sustainability theory vibes.

This is a great video! I really appreciated the minimalists like 7 years ago and listened to them a lot (they only had a blog and podcast back then), but then the Ted talks, documentaries and I also read their books are all EXACTLY THE SAME. They work with Matt davella (or whatever it’s spelled like) and his content is also the same so makes sense he films their crap too 😅
Sherrythefruitypenguin Ditë më parë
Whoops just got to the part where you give Matt a shoutout. I think he’s brutally milking the algorithm , but at least the quality is well made 😅

This mentality of things don’t make you happy is so bs to me it always comes from people that can have it all. Yes my vase serves no purpose other than looking cute on my table but I love the atmosphere it creates I love walking into my living room and seeing all the little things I curated over the years they remind me of moments and make me happy. I would feel sad in an empty ass room I would feel annoyed constantly when I would live in a tiny house and basically have zero space it would be lame for me to always wear the same things over and over. When I‘m old I want to have that book that I bought in my 20‘s and the things that made my life great.

Hannah Vanderzee

I used to be a really big fan of them and I do still agree with the philosophy in general... however, it really twisted my mind into thinking, as someone who is essentially unemployed and is on benefits, all I need to be happy and save money is just to not consume and have stuff. Because even though I essentially have no money, I'm living this etheral life. Which is kind of dangerous? I just threw out heaps of shit that materially brought me no happiness sure, but when you live close to the poverty line and your possessions (especially clothes which other people see) are the only semblance of a secure and "normal" life, it makes me so mad that they, who were on six-figure incomes before they dived into this, are profiting off my adoption of this philosophy. It just REEKS of (very white) privilege.

For me minimalism was about what I could learn to do myself rather than buy. I learned a LOT about stuff I never thought I could do! And I can say to this day, they never found the bodies.

I used to listen to their podcast when they were starting getting recognition and enjoyed it but then I was put off by things such as: 1. podcast contained Q&A from their tour which was same stuff every episode 😩 2. They talked a lot about not wanting to interview anyone then all of a sudden they move to LA to interview other podcasters duplicating what has already been said 😑 3. Their fascination with LA went bizarre given how much they claimed to love Montana 🙄

I went into their documentary excited, hoping it would be like Marie Kondo. It made me so minimalist, I gave little to no fuck about the empty documentary. Like, sure, I liked them during their tedtalk days but they really need some substance and fresh new specific idea to approach minimalism already if they want to make a new documentary, if not, then just why bother.

Marie Kondo's take on decluttering (which is a subsection of minimalism) is milder and more of a "breath of fresh air." this documentary however feels so intense, forced and culty lmao

This minimalist trend is one of biggest BS I've ever seen in recent years. ALnetsrs 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.

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.
