An Extravagant Lifestyle

America's Obscene Wealth

Anyone wants to be rich, including me. But I often think that the rich have extravagant lifestyle. Somehow, they pose themselves for their friends to boast their possessions, or just simply to make them jealous.

The picture above was taken from WIRED. I’m not invulnerable to these kind of things: media manipulation or peer pressure to become rich, it doesn’t feel right. Maybe the term “Spending money on things you don’t need to impress people you don’t like” fit the most here.

I’m not trying to judge rich people how they spend their money. But I think it’d be more prudent if they actually don’t show their richness off to other peoples. Because it can manipulate lesser minds to obey their extravagant lifestyle.
