Why are people so obsessed with having a lot of money, big house, expensive vehicles, overpriced fashionable clothes, etc.?

I feel society as a whole has forgotten about what is really important. Family, true friends, being happy, working a job you actually like and raising children properly.

A lot of people aren't obsessed with it and for those that are *shrugs*
Different strokes. I don't know them, they don't affect me, I don't care.

Because our values as a culture, and our perception of those values are heavily influenced by popular media and it has expressed that money is more important than family

So you think rich people don't have good friends, nice family, etc?

because you need money, you need a big house if you have a family, and its always good to have a nice quality car that is reliable, over priced fashionable clothes boost the confidence.

Because God is not the center of their lives and should be at the top of the list you provided. God Bless!

Some do, some don't. Now for the record, I don't hate/despise the rich. I somebody is successful and/or rich good for them. I don't understand why it's a necessity to have extravagant material things.
