But this is all luxury, it's not the fulfillment of a basic need and
even a right (as proclaimed by the UN). It's going above and beyond
that, which is fine, but it's not *needed* in the sense of survival and
being able to further yourself in life and career.
Just as a toyota corolla perfectly fulfills the need to drive your
toddlers around and drive to and from work. An SUV in almost all cases
is added luxury.
