The story of Stuff

a big analysis of the desiring machine implanted within the root of our minds; the hunger for the new and next thing we need to buy.

"From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever."  the story of stuff

I might be wrong, but I think we may be able to undermine our need for stuff, if we can invent the singularity, or the one thing that does everything:

"Technological singularity refers to the (idea) that technological progress will reach such an infinite or extremely high value at a point in the near future. "  Wikipedia
