I would not call myself a materialist, all this craving for stuff, new shoes, new laptop, new cycling jersey, new bicycle lock, new this and that, I realize that it is all of minor importance. It's just another distraction.
Food, water, shelter. Bare minimum, you got that, things are not bad.
Ideally, the food should be healthy, good quality, nutritious, the water should be clean and pure, and the shelter should be free of noise and pollution, offering protection from sun and wind and rain and cold and insects and other wild infestations that eat away at our quality of life.
Peace of mind is of prime importance, without that, it doesn't really matter what you have, or have not, your state of mind has the final say, without peace of mind, you might as well be starving to death.
Starving to death, for lack of peace of mind, effects those with not enough, who are lacking the basic necessities of life, as well as those with too much, who are never satisfied with what they have, they always want more.
I'm not really what you would call a political person. But I've been following Trump, because frankly he's the most entertaining of all the candidates on all sides. But, he's a joke. I know it, you know it, we all know it. It's the merging of reality TV and politics, a circus freak show for responsible tax paying citizens. He's the trump card laughing at your expense. Of course he'll never be president, the president is a well polished, well groomed,
My best advice to Trump is to give away all of his money to charity (ideally giving a substantial sum to research and development, advancing technological innovations for improving the physical quality of life on earth, furthering our scientific understanding of the universe without regard to making a financial profit), and becoming a wandering penniless monk.
