Vice before Virtue. This is the way.
It never ceases to amaze me how the most destitute among us often seem to have the greatest capacity for empathy and charity. Not to wish ill upon anyone, but I believe if everyone experienced life without modern creature comforts for any meaningful period of time that we could collectively reset our baseline for what it means to "have what we need" in this life. There is a distinct beauty in simplicity whether self-imposed or foisted upon us by means outside of our control.
