As long as humans place such importance on material gain and social position, they will always be in conflict with one another
"As long as human beings place such importance on material gain and social position, they will always be in conflict with one another. For there is a limited amount that can be acquired in the physical realm, and it is impossible for the whole world to bathe in such opulence. But this is not to say that the whole world cannot be happy, for in fact happiness is not opulence. It takes very few material goods to provide for our existence and our happiness, but only if we understand that we must work to orient our needs toward the psychic world and beyond, to the spiritual world, where the possibilities are infinite. There, each of us can feed ourselves and quench our thirst all we want without creating conflict with our neighbours, and without fear that someone will come and take away what we have acquired."
