    There are BETTER things than keeping up with the Joneses . . . there are friends, community, joy, doing something important for the world, a glass of wine with friends, cuddling a new baby, dogs . . . all of this, always, is easier with no financial worries  . . . and NO ONE in this richest of countries should have to be worried about food or shelter or going to the doctor . . . but after we are able to meet these basic needs (and WE CAN, if we work together) then maybe everyone can more fully enjoy everything else.
