People in under developed countries see the “American Dream” lifestyle and crave it when there is nothing to it. You basically just work, save money and buy expensive things to be seen by others. To be loved by others in a materialistic way. You aren’t left alone. People are always in your business. The “American Dream” is an illusion which does not bring happiness. It brings comfort. Comfort and happiness are two different feelings. I can go lay in my bed and be comfortable but when I lay in this bed, I am not happy but I am comfortable. Money is nothing but comfort and the “American Dream” is nothing but comfort. It is not happiness. So when they look at this lifestyle, they are seeing something totally different than what we are living here. That is not to say money is bad but it is nothing but comfort. It’s an item of and for survival not happiness. Then again, you can still survive without money but for how long?
