At Matthew May's site, writer/designer Graham Hill giving a thought-provoking TED talk on the freedom of less stuff.
Being of a rather monkish nature, I have great sympathy for the stuff reduction philosophy and yet also worry that many who embrace it would not balk at coercion; e.g., "I (or the government) will decide what you really need and all else must go."
I find a certain liberation in reducing the amount of things, if only because they can become great distractions, but those who like the clutter of possessions should embrace it and not apologize for their approach.
Each to his own.
