Legal historian, sociologist and theologian French Protestant. Autograph letter signed (burgundy), 8 December, a gentleman, 1 page in-4, heading to the University of Bordeaux. Very nice letter from Jacques Ellul retracing his past and criticizing the consumer society.Ou should know that all these gadgets do not ensure anything happiness and human balance ... Misery, true, I've known.
And I was very happy though. Then, when I was dismissed by Vichy in 1940, and stayed without resources from 40 to 44. We lived in the country, like real farmers. We had no gas or running water. I would take water from the well.And heating, wood (I abattais and débitais). There was a room heated by a stove, the children. As for me, I often washed me with frozen water in the pot to water .... and we kept a souvenir so happy this time that my wife sometimes wish we had stayed in the country . The second: in 1954, I found my tax forms!
I was associate university for 10 years - I was earning twice you at the time (but a lecturer earning no more than you, and I'm not sure that with treatment he xa 10 is actually much more ease today) - with 3 children and two parents wholly dependent - and when I say that 54 we were happy, I stand by - of course, I did not have the means to buy a car or a second home. Or audio system, or machine, or even fridge. And I assure you that all these odds we were not lacking. It is suited very well otherwise.
It is only the absurd passion always have and consume more that drives the opposite discourse. But we should know that all these gadgets do not ensure anything happiness and human balance.
