I’ve read some of these haters’ comments, some on Medium, and boy, the fear of otherness that comes from even some of the more “liberal” minded people is sickening. I feel as though (some) people in the West take one step forward only to backtrack a few more… Also, it seems to get lost on most people that everyone has a particular audience. Marketers preach this all the time. Also knows as the “ideal client avatar”. You make an excellent point here that Marie isn’t going around trying to convert everyone to throw away their stuff. She’s simply showing those who already want to declutter, how to do so in a way that makes them feel better about doing so.
