Poverty or wealth has nothing to do with material things. Some of the richest people on the planet have less, materially, than 90 percent of Americans. They live comfortably in huts, tents, or yurts. They have no running water, barely any clothing, no electricity, and little technology. They have little sense of the past or future. They work, hunt, plant and harvest, and use the plants around them as medicine. They have sex, make babies, raise families, worship their gods, and experience no sense of lack, need, or inferiority. Their children seem rich with innocence, trust, joy, and freedom from fear, worry, ambition, competition, and conflict. In many ways, these are the most sane and satiated people on the planet.
