The Almighty Dollar

Real money provides a modicum of comfort in a materialist society, if one is good with its management, and otherwise:

“…money is a commodity to be bought or not to be bought, a luxury in which we may either indulge or stint ourselves, like any other. And there are many luxuries that we may legitimately prefer to it, such as a grateful conscience, a country life, or the woman of our inclination.”  Robert Louis Stevenson


Also, whoever said comfort is the ultimate goal?
