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.
