Dreaming of an efficient American dream.

Historically, there have been a lot of times and places where the people were divided into the very rich and the very poor. The rich were usually wasteful.

The American dream partly has to do with everyone having a chance to have a decent, comfortable life and being able to do things they like and things that interest them.

For that to have a chance of happening, people who have a decent, comfortable life need to not be as wasteful as the very rich in extreme situations.

People need to learn to recognize comfort and enough when they get there, and not inefficiently and wastefully overshoot.
