Declaring that we’d all be happy with more, or with less, is like saying that every book should be a hundred pages long. Every book as a right length, and people differ in the number of possessions, and the types of possessions, with which they can meaningfully engage. One person is happy living in a sparsely furnished yurt, while another person is happy adding to a collection of fine porcelain. There’s no one right way; I must decide what’s right for me.
