Modern society is at the verge of decline because of unequal distribution of wealth and opportunities. We see a few people spend money carelessly on daily basis. They celebrate special occasions by showing the power of wealth to their competitors. Having abundance of wealth but they fail to perform social responsiblities. 
Contrarty to this we see many people without basic needs such as food, education and quality health services. Both individual and governments are equally responsible for negligence.

How we can consider ourself developed and modern having many people with deprivation and destitution?
In my view, simplicity is ever good over consumerism More competition in imparting things ruins human nature and breeds social unrest 

Hence we can control crime and violence by spreading social needs of poor segment of society.
