Hoarding

Today Tonight has a thing on hoarding.

"Hoarding is an obsessive-compulsive disorder. Hoarders should get treatment! Hoarders are content living like that and don't realise what dysfunctional freaks they are!!"

Okay, the people who live in a house that is a fire hazard due to piles of rubbish probably have a problem.

But people who collect? People who display their possessions neatly? People who keep old papers? They're keepers of history, not mental cases. What would happen to that stuff if they didn't have it? That's right, it would probably end up on landfill.

Society has become so damn wasteful that anyone that keeps stuff is considered to have a problem.

I think the people that throw away piles of perfectly good stuff have the problem.
