Advent Word, Day 22 ‘simplify’

Day 22 #simplify #簡單化 Monday December 19

‘A simpler lifestyle can be a way to share with those who have less and a way of returning to them what is usurped by unjust social and economic structures. Assuming a stance of under-consumption can be a provocative invitation to others into a conversation about affluence, poverty and social justice’.

簡單的生活模式,可做為一種「分享」,與那些收入低、財產少的人分享;也可以當作「歸還」的方式,把不公平的社經結構所造成的「侵佔所得」歸還遭到剝削的族群。採取低消費的姿態,會是一種有力的邀約,激發他人談論攸關貧富以及社會正義的問題。
