Money cannot buy everything – Is this still true?I always remember a popular thought that we have been hearing from past and that is "Money cannot buy everything". Sometimes I wonder does this still hold true in the current materialistic world. We see nowadays that people who have more money enjoy all sorts of comforts in life and people with limited money face hardships in every walk of life. Though it is true that money cannot buy relationships and peace of mind but nowadays in this money-centric society even sometimes relations are built for money and many of the things which were based on ideals earlier are now based on money.
Good medical treatment, good education, good lifestyle are all dependent on money. For example, a poor person who cannot get themselves treated in good hospitals can die due to even minor ailments while on the other hand, rich people are able to get the most expensive treatment done and can recover even from the life-threatening illness.
I feel slowly and steadily we are moving to an era where money is becoming more and more important and in some way, it is getting linked to a convenient and happy life. Though it is still true that money is not everything in life but with time this thinking is slowly getting diluted.
