    Is our society one

    in which individuals are assured the necessities of life and most assets are communal and shared, it isn't necessary or even an advantage to own a lot of things that require maintenance and repair.
     I would argue that many do not have their necessities taken care of, with inadequate medical care being one.  There is also substandard housing and inadequate nutrition.  You could also argue that people want to work, and too many people are today deprived of their ability to work (too many people are unemployed, not because they aren't looking for work, but because there aren't enough jobs).  We are far from a world where your amount of savings doesn't matter.  People without money are rarely the ones saying that it doesn't matter.
