    Well the moment NF idealism gets substituted by NT pragmatism this world is doomed.

    anybody can be free it just depends on the amount of responsibility you take on...homeless dude on the street with no job..no car..no family...no one who expects anything of him might feel just as free as someone with enough money in their pocket to not have to worry about that stuff...but yeah if freedom is your goal and you know how to go about it 5 million would make it pretty comfortable.

    I think it was summed up best in one of my favorite movies "Arthur".

    Arthur: Have you ever been on a yacht?
    Linda: No, is it wonderful?
    Arthur: It doesn't suck.

    What I have discovered is that the more you make, the more your standard of living goes up. That is, you become accustomed to a better life and increased level of consumption. There is a point though where you feel you don't need any more and diminishing marginal utility kicks in. I think that level of vastly different for different individuals. So, 5M might be peanuts to one person and a fortune to another.

    it's true i think..gauging from people i've known...people still have their wants that they can't easily obtain...the amount is different but the feeling and experience is the same.

    Well, having a lot of money can open up all kinds of posibilities for you. But most people don't take advantage of their full range of possibilities anyway. I find what ends up tying a person down are expectations and responsibility, not the lack of money.

    The one really cool thing is being able to travel.

    Getting to see other countries and broadening my horizons while I was young is something I will always be grateful to my parents for.

    Yes, money gives you freedom. It may give you more responsibilities but it gives you more opportunities which = freedom. One example is freedom of movement. Money makes it much easier to travel, travel in comfort, and travel on your own time as opposed to searching for sales and discounts.

    Money gives you access to things, access equals more freedom. If you're still miserable with 5m that's more a reflection on your mind set than anything else.
