Wanting What We Do Not Need

One of the side-effects of capitalism is the encouragement of and inclination toward buying things we do not need. This can lead into a spiral of acquisition for its own sake which can be spiritually/emotionally negative. We can, though, learn to value what we have and avoid the constant push towards mindlessly acquiring that which we do not need or maybe even want.
