But why must we (as social creatures, heavy on the creatures ) be so obsessed with having lots of "things"? Why can't we be happy with what we need and not worry about what everyone else has or feels we have to have to be successful. Why can't doing a good job be enough anymore?
Ah well... Philosophy is always a never ending quest to answer the obvious with the oblique.
(Notice "many-many" construct, this "MORE OF FORM IS MORE OF CONTENT" metaphor at work. Duplicating words will strengthen meaning )
