About

At Simple Student we’re dedicated to learning and simplicity:

Learning is not confined to classrooms and lecture halls, it is something that we do throughout life. An important lesson is to learn the concept of consumerism: the social & economic theory that the increasing consumption of material (& increasingly immaterial, like apps) goods is economically & socially desirable. In other words, it’s the social conditioning required so that we buy stuff to feel better.

Simplicity is the antithesis of consumerism. Simplicity means ignoring the social pressures to acquire the biggest TV or newest smartphone. It is a process of analysing your life & your needs then making conscious decisions about what to have and what not to have. Voluntary Simplicity is the awareness of the environmental damage consumerism is doing to the world and works to counter this. It is the art of intentional living.

To keep things simple, we’ll leave it at that.
