Should modern society be criticized for being materialistic? Personally I feel that society should accept the fact that some people enjoy to present themselves as well as possible and not be labled or “criticized” for it. Obviously there is a fine line between just looking good and going overboard and harming your financial status and those around you. What is materialistic? Some uneducated people would respond, “ materialistic people are those who have to have the latest trend in fashion and so forth “, while more educated people would respond, “ materialistic people are simply those who choose to indulge their lives with higher value items.” I’m not disputing the fact that been materialistic doesn’t have its tolls but I am stating that desiring to look nice isn’t always such a bad thing.
