Just a short note on the “in your face” displays of wealth and unbridled consumerism I’ve been aware of on our travels in California.
I really want to do an in depth survey of people and where they get their money. In contrast to the farm workers, so many others appear to have no limits on their appetite for high end consumer goods.
Especially here in the land of multi-million dollar homes, some of which are mere cottages. I really want to know what these folks do for a living. Are they so far in debt that it no longer matters?
(I can not recall ever having a clue about or any
aspirations for wealth. I was totally in the dark and considered myself lucky to have a job.)
Some of the “campers” here cost well over $100,000 and this RV park is NOT “top of the line” as RV parks go around here. Where DO people get their money?
