Society is built upon how you have explained it, at least up until now.
That is not an entirely bad thing either. The problem is not getting the promotions and the money, its realizing that it will always be the simple

Friends, extended family, and close family.

Speaking for myself, I have a vision of becoming "mildly" rich just to be able to go on more activities with my circle. Even if others are strapped
for cash, I will be able to fork some of my own out and have a good time with everyone.
I would like to explore the world, while at the same time be able to have a nice comfortable home in a city somewhere.
You still have a great point, speaking for most people today. Many citizens live in a unique routine that shrink their life into a ball.

It is dinner time. Guess what I wanted? Some goetta
...I swear no one has ever heard of

It is living outside of the routine which has helped me enjoy life so much. My goal in life is just to be happy...and whatever ensues after that so
I do not want a million dollar house (it sure would be nice), or a Ferrari (oh man...), but I want to help better those around me the best I can with
In the end though, we each have our own state of mind, and it may not look like it to you, but everyone lives in their own way...even if it does look
boring to us.
