Default Re: Money = A Source of True Joy and Happiness?

Ever tried living dirt cheap, eating Ramen with no heating and bare essentials for electricity and transportation in the winter? I've been there. And trust me, if you have, you'll never be idealistic about this sort of discussion again.

Money buys a lot--it even buys many forms of true happiness. Candy, family outings, video games, books, art, schooling, cars, travel, medical care, illegal things...Anything material or any form of service can be gained through money. There is indeed true happiness in things like hobbies and passionate interests which are fueled and furthered by money, so yes, money can buy true happiness.

It won't, however, buy you true love or true friendship, or much in the way of life experience. I guess it just boils down to what a person really wants out of life.

Money isn't the source of happiness, but it is needed for happiness. Nothing these days is free, so money is needed to do just about anything fun.

Take shoes for an example. If you have at least a pair your fine but if you want a really expensive shoes thats not really necessary to survive.
And, in the current US Subprime Crisis{If anyone doesn't know what it is, ask the average three year old, they'll know} money's not necessary, eh?

But who said it's not necessary to survive? I must agree about it parly, but if you want something expensive...you're lucky.

Thanks for bringing that one up. Medical care should NOT be one of the things that cost money (see Europe, Cuba, and Canada to some extent). This is more a problem of the government rather than that of the capabilities of money.

But nonetheless, it makes one truly happy to see their loved ones receive needed medical care, even though it has to be paid for, often with an arm and a leg around here. :p
