But it's hard to just forget about what I have read. Including them saying that materialism is dated or wrong.
There is a big difference between "materialism" as in "the pursuit of having a bigger TV than the Joneses" and as in "the belief that only what's directly perceivable by your senses exists". Both of them are wrong, but in different ways. Denying the existence and worth of any and all material things is also wrong: the opposite of something which happens to be wrong isn't necessarily going to be right.
