What luxuries humans need more?
My keen observation of the lives of people in our locality suggested to me to ask around for some insights about contentment and simple living. Personally, I believe that I am living a simple life.
But what about them? Families, who inherited the land from their forefathers, inch slowly to what we call progress. Yes, they have the basic necessities, having their children in school and entertain themselves with some of the modern amenities of life. That’s about it.
They will dream. If their dream does not come true as they wish them to be, one of two things follows: they become resigned to their fate or they resort to more questionable means.
When things they cannot afford, because of poverty or any other circumstances, become an obsession they tend to look for ways to get their desires. They can be tempted to thread the criminal route.
Is it worth the gamble to acquire the luxuries we crave through the corruption of our goodness as a human being? Can we live a happy life when the origins of our affluent lifestyles come from illegal sources?
