BUY­ING FRENZY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

WITH Christ­mas Day still weeks away, we are al­ready bom­barded by man­u­fac­tur­ers, ad­ver­tis­ers and re­tail­ers to buy their prod­ucts.

Screams of buy, buy, buy; get one free or no need to pay for years are on ra­dio or tele­vi­sion and the ad­ver­tise­ments en­tice the pop­u­lace to do just that.

I be­lieve in the words of one wise man who stated there was enough in the world for all man’s needs but not for all their greeds.

How sad to see the lem­mings of so­ci­ety trapped into pur­chas­ing things they don’t re­ally need. MIKE WARD, Carlisle.
