More of everything. When a person is satisfied, then they don’t require any more. How does a person determine when they have enough money? Some people are classified as being rich, but the old saying says that the rich get richer while the poor get poorer. There is a big economic divide in the USA now and I don’t have any statistics for you because this is a stream of consciousness post, but I think it is like less than one percent of the people own ninety five percent of everything. These rich people are never satisfied and they are driven by greed to acquire more and more of everything.
Drug addicts want more drugs. Nobody is ever satisfied by snorting one line of cocaine, so they do more. In fact, cocaine is often called more, because users are never satisfied from it and they want more. The effects of snorting coke will hit you hard and fast, and because it is a stimulant drug you may feel more alert and energetic, or even euphoric, but the rush only lasts for about 15 to 30 minutes and then it is time to snort more, so you can avoid the crash that is sure to follow.
We live in a capitalistic society with consumerism driving people’s wants, needs and desires. People have 80-inch TV sets with hundreds of channels, which is way more than they need. My nephew pays $250 a month for his cable TV package and he is hardly ever home to watch it. He has a two-year-old son who has the Disney package, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and several others all for his son to be entertained. It is all too much which reminds me of a Beatles song and Mick Jager just can’t get no satisfaction.
