Every action is a vote for who you wish to become
civilizations operate in a cycle. You've just described the an age of prosperity and the current age of decline. next up will be the collapse / dissolution of the system, follow by a reconstruction.
wealth in the era of collapse will look much different than wealth in the era of prosperity. Once the elites rug pull the global economy, no "traditional" means of wealth will matter - stocks, home ownership, cash, even gold/silver/ crypto.
In the collapse, wealth will be measure in things that contribute to survival: Guns, ammo, medical supplies, farm animals, agricultural tools and land, and the know how to use them. A strong body and mind. A community of people who will support you and fight with you. Shit's gonna get primitive.
True (abridged) story... YMMV
Her - "Trust me" (traveling solo)
Her - "Here's a pic of me on the beach"
Me - Nice pic, who was the photographer?
Her - "just some random dude with impeccable game who started hitting on me since my thong bikini attracted him. So he offered to take some pics, then buy me lunch, then had dinner together, then drinks, and.... if you want to know what happened after that you should have traveled with me...."
She's talking about traveling alone.
