Getting food is important to life. So is other things that helps us enjoy life.
Even if things have a way of obscuring the central roles family, friends, meaningful activity and nature play in our lives things made of our resources other than food has helped in advancing the well-being for some of us. Medicine, medical equipment, school books, computers, mobile phones, that fart-sound toy.
Limited resources and decreasing well-being from stuff mean that we maybe, after we have secured food for all, focus more on using the limited resource to produce medicine rather than fart-sound toys no matter how hilarious they are.
The goal of our society can guide us in what to produce and what not and when we produce, reaffirming earlier encouragements, accept the limits, fairly distribute the resources, use renewables, be generative and responsible for the whole cycle of life!
