In our consumerist, acquisitive culture, how can we know when enough is enough?
I think it's different for each person. Those of us who are more introspective will eventually realize that "things" will never make us whole, and those who are able to keep themselves distracted constantly may never reach that conclusion.
Hmm, When people are wasting products and resources are idle. I think they have enough. Example, if a person has five cars two houses and three boats. Seriously unless you are laoning those items out to others I would say that is more than enough. Ok that may be over the top, but I am sure you get the point.
Food, water, air, shelter, peace of bing, spiritual growth these are the basic needs. All other things are wants. Once a person has their needs met, technically speaking that is enough. When a person have things just to say they have it or just to show, they have too much.
