“The world says: 'You have needs— satisfy them. You have as much right to it as the rich and the mighty. Do not hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more.' This is the worldly doctrine of today.
And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, and for the poor, envy and murder.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
