This comment section is golden 🤣 "The Minimalists" are 2 millionaire grifters, which do likely have all the stuff that they tell their listeners to not own. Ryan, for the most part, seems the most genuine of the 2 & knows if he gives this up now then it'll be the last job he'll ever have, Josh though & his wife are so annoying & are stupid hypocrites that just repeat the same daft old lines. They're turning minimalism into a parody & joke of what it really is about & minimalism shouldn't be the core of a person's identity, just a part of it. & What's with their silly obsession with coffee & making it with very expensive coffee makers lol the director of these documentaries is a Grade A douchebag too! Scientology vibes all of the place 🤣

Hm well i became interested in minimalism 6 years ago, i have downsized a lot and it trully gives me joy. But even i stopped listening to their podcast three years ago because they are not developing as personalities. And that first documentary really impressed me and shaped me like a human being i am today but thats it. They are good guys with good intentions but i do think that fame got into the way with their purity towards their dream. And im glad to hear that im not the only one who thought that second movie suced.

Drew saved me from listening to hours of podcast which would clutter my storage space. Buying four books that would sit on my shelf. And saving my money from a patreon subscription which won’t make me happy. Drew are you sure you didn’t join the cult???

Remember Mr. Gooden, Sir, this educational information -- which I read about eight years ago -- accommodates my severe carelessness for NOT properly saving for a *non-minimalist retirement* living!

This is a great video! I really appreciated the minimalists like 7 years ago and listened to them a lot (they only had a blog and podcast back then), but then the Ted talks, documentaries and I also read their books are all EXACTLY THE SAME. They work with Matt davella (or whatever it’s spelled like) and his content is also the same so makes sense he films their crap too 😅

This mentality of things don’t make you happy is so bs to me it always comes from people that can have it all. Yes my vase serves no purpose other than looking cute on my table but I love the atmosphere it creates I love walking into my living room and seeing all the little things I curated over the years they remind me of moments and make me happy. I would feel sad in an empty ass room I would feel annoyed constantly when I would live in a tiny house and basically have zero space it would be lame for me to always wear the same things over and over. When I‘m old I want to have that book that I bought in my 20‘s and the things that made my life great.

I used to be a really big fan of them and I do still agree with the philosophy in general... however, it really twisted my mind into thinking, as someone who is essentially unemployed and is on benefits, all I need to be happy and save money is just to not consume and have stuff. Because even though I essentially have no money, I'm living this etheral life. Which is kind of dangerous? I just threw out heaps of shit that materially brought me no happiness sure, but when you live close to the poverty line and your possessions (especially clothes which other people see) are the only semblance of a secure and "normal" life, it makes me so mad that they, who were on six-figure incomes before they dived into this, are profiting off my adoption of this philosophy. It just REEKS of (very white) privilege.

I used to listen to their podcast when they were starting getting recognition and enjoyed it but then I was put off by things such as: 1. podcast contained Q&A from their tour which was same stuff every episode 😩 2. They talked a lot about not wanting to interview anyone then all of a sudden they move to LA to interview other podcasters duplicating what has already been said 😑 3. Their fascination with LA went bizarre given how much they claimed to love Montana 🙄

I went into their documentary excited, hoping it would be like Marie Kondo. It made me so minimalist, I gave little to no fuck about the empty documentary. Like, sure, I liked them during their tedtalk days but they really need some substance and fresh new specific idea to approach minimalism already if they want to make a new documentary, if not, then just why bother.
