Embedded in your words are some very important and significant insights. When we break it down it is the materialism and greed of people that is wreaking so much havoc and destruction in our lives and upon our world.
I have had a similar epiphany in that I have realised money and posessions are just hollow neurotic and psychotic distortions in our souls, planted like choking weeds by those who want that kind of world full of that kind of people.
The things I lack and crave for are the good things that previously we were able to take for granted; solid and loyal relationships, love and affection, strong family connections and being able to trust my fellow man and woman. It is these kind of experiences we have lost and humanity has sold its soul for beads and trinkets that we cannot carry with us after death.
