holidays

Holidays have the potential to be Capitalist traps or a welcome reminder to appreciate those we love. Approach these days with an open heart and not an open wallet and their value will be increased far beyond the status quo.

Holidays and Capitalism: A greedy ploy or something more wholesome?  

Cheeky Employee

Father’s Day is up next on the long list of pointless holidays imposed upon us by Capitalism and Corporate Greed!  Is that really what’s happening?  Why would we all be so foolish as to celebrate them anyway if this were the case?

No, I would argue that there is a far more wholesome reason for these little holidays.  We kind of need them. 

When was the last time you bought your parents gifts just because?  A while ago wasn’t it?  Birthdays are the same deal.  Sometimes we just need a little nudge to show our friends and family the appreciation they deserve. 

Counter Arguments:

A couple of people would beg to differ and I will now debunk those people’s arguments!

We already have Birthdays, we don’t need Holidays too!

Uumm, excuse me?  Would you like to look your mother in the eye and explain to her why she only needs to be loved once a year?  Yes, yes, yes, you love her any other day of the year too, but you aren’t that great at showing it.

Debunked

My fathers Birthday is in July, so we combine the two events anyway.

Every system has bugs.  This is an exception not the rule.

Debunked

We are forced to spend money on silly gifts?

By whom?  No, no one is forcing you to do anything.  Have a picnic, write a song or do anything else to show you care.  Your degree of participation in Capitalism is a choice. 

Debunked

Put any other arguments in the comments below and I will get to them shortly.

Holidays have the potential to be Capitalist traps or a welcome reminder to appreciate those we love.  Approach these days with an open heart and not an open wallet and their value will be increased far beyond the status quo.
