Re: Opposition to liveaboards
You can give money as much or as little importance as you like. There is a basic level of money everyone in the US needs to reach but if a person is wise in the areas of debt and "needs vs wants," the level of money needed is really not that much. The bigger issue is independence which to me equals happiness, the thing everyone, rich or poor wants. You cannot be independent if you owe a lot of money or if you let jealousy and envy affect your decisions. Being on the American treadmill is a hideous place to be no matter how many dollars you accumulate. It's a place many get stuck and then forget what really matters. I just wish more people would have time to take a step back and reassess what this short span of existence is all about but that would terrify those that want to see everyone on the treadmill.
