You buy it for yourself and for your family while they live with you. I still buy the house i live in today. I buy it for myself and so my kids have somewhere to be raised. Why the hell would you buy stuff if it wasnt for you and your family to experience while you are alive? How stupid is that? Not to mention wasteful of both resources which other people could need and your leisure time?Why would you buy anything then. It would be far better to just rent and spend everything you earn. All incentive to do more than you need to get by would be pointless. Sounds about as awesome as the old defunct communist era USSR.
dont work to death building up giant piles of resources you have no use for. Work just enough to have a comfotable life and provide yourself ample leisure time to pursue your interests. To make you happy.
life is supposed to be about happiness. Not building stockpiles of resources for your great great grand children who you never meet and are only genetically linked to you by 1/8th or 1/16th.
And if you think the meaning of life is about working to death to build stockpiles for others then wont they do the same and so on? Everyone building wealth for others and those others also doing the same so no one actually benefits from it?
the height of insanity. Literal insanity.
