    Baada ya kusoma hii habari, inaniaminisha kuwa matatizo haya ndio yanawakumba wanazi wa chadema, jisomee mwenyewe:

    [h=3]Scientists Find that Low Self-Esteem & Materialism Goes Hand in Hand[/h] [​IMG] “Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.”

    ~From the movie Fight Club, based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk
    A Galaxy classic...with a recession going full force, we thought this feature might help ease the pain.

    Researchers have found that low self-esteem and materialism are not just a correlation, but also a causal relationship where low self esteem increases materialism, and materialism can also create low self-esteem. The also found that as self esteem increases, materialism decreases. The study primarily focused on how this relationship affects children and adolescents. Lan Nguyen Chaplin (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign) and Deborah Roedder John (University of Minnesota) found that even a simple gesture to raise self-esteem dramatically decreased materialism, which provides a way to cope with insecurity.


    "By the time children reach early adolescence, and experience a decline in self-esteem, the stage is set for the use of material possessions as a coping strategy for feelings of low self-worth," they write in the study, which will appear in the Journal of Consumer Research.


    The paradox that findings such as these bring up, is that consumerism is good for the economy but bad for the individual. In the short run, it’s good for the economy when young people believe they need to buy an entirely new wardrobe every year, for example. But the hidden cost is much higher than the dollar amount. There are costs in happiness when people believe that their value is extrinsic. There are also environmental costs associated with widespread materialism.


    In the book “Happiness: Lessons From a New Science”, Richard Layard exposes a paradox at the heart of our lives. Most of us want more income so we can consume more. Yet as societies become richer, they do not become happier. In fact, the First World has more depression, more alcoholism and more crime than fifty years ago. This paradox is true of Britain, the United States, continental Europe and Japan.


    Statistically people have more things than they did 50 years ago, but they are actually less happy in several key areas. There is also the considerable cost of what materialism does to the environment. We don’t yet know what final toll that could take in terms of quality of life and overall happiness. What many people don’t understand is that if we want to save the environment then at some level we have to buy and consume less. We don’t need to buy so much bottled water, for example. Studies have shown it’s usually not any purer than city tap water, which doesn’t leave mountains of plastic bottles strewn across the nations landfills. It also wastes energy and resources to make those plastic bottles and the many other unnecessary things that both youth and adults alike believe they need to have in order to enjoy life and feel good about themselves.


    Mad Magazine summed it up with the statement, “The only reason a great many American families don't own an elephant is that they have never been offered an elephant for a dollar down and easy weekly payments.”
    That funny statement, is only funny because it’s somewhat true. The reason people want whatever is currently “hot” is because they believe it will contribute towards their satisfaction and happiness in life. The word “believe” is the key here. People believe that buying more and more things will make them happy, when in fact research has shown time and time again that this simply isn’t the case. What we do know for sure is that buying more and more unnecessary things is damaging our planet and contributing to global warming.


    Sure, one person being less materialistic isn’t going to make a noticeable impact on the environment, but it will make a positive impact in that one life. Once entire nations start to understand the myths about what really makes individuals happy, the world will stand a fighting chance.

    Wana chadema kila siku wanalalamika kuwa maisha ni magumu lakini hawatazami tulipotoka na wengi wao wala wala hawajui tumetokea wapi, tulikuwa hatuna tulivyonavyo sasa na tuliridhika. Sasa kuna kila kitu na wao bado wanaona hakuna. NI simply "materialists" ndio maana wanadanganywa kiurahisi.

    Ukielewa hilo utaielewa hii "article" kwanini inanifanya niihusishe na wana chadema.

    Aprox 60% ya Watanzania wana umri chini ya miaka 30, hivyo ni kweli wanaweza wasijue mengi, lakini kwa vyoyote vile watakuwa wamepata taarifa sahihi kuhusu maisha ya huko kwamba haikuwahi kutokea serikali ikamiliki magari yenye thamani ya nusu ya bajeti ya mwaka mzima au magari yenye thamani sawa na asilimia 21 ya pato lake la taifa.

    Na kuhusu hoja ya "materialists", Kwa mfano vijana wanaouza viberiti pale ubunge mataa nao utasema wanalalamika kwa sababu ni materialistic?
