There was a time when a new dress was an important event, more than an afterthought. There was a ceremony to clothing. Today we have become accustomed to opulence, we get everything we want right now. Enough is not enough, we want more than we need and we want it instantly. This endless ravenous yearning for more applies to our whole lifestyle, and how we perceive the world. We want more likes, we want bigger butts, we want filthier porn and most importantly: we want more money. This lifestyle quickly renders all things quite meaningless. 
What gives things real value?
