Foolishness is part of human nature...

Tim Jackson mentioned the following in a TEDTalk, and I paraphrase: We're using money we don't have (credit cards etc) to buy stuff we don't need, that don't make a lasting impact ("flavor of the month"), to impress people who don't really matter to us.

I believe this applies to life in general. People like to spend their energy doing things that don't make a lasting impact.
