Buy what thou hast no need of and ere long thou shalt sell thy necessities
~ Benjamin Franklin
When you have the words 21st century and teenagers in the same sentence, there is an endless amount of things that any kid would say are are on that list. But the only hard thing about finding the necessities in life is that innovation and new generations have made our species so reliant on insignificant things. Teenagers these days will tell you they need their phone, clothes, education, and money. And then if they think hard enough, they’ll get to the actual important stuff life water, food, shelter, etc. If you asked me, I would say the human necessities first, and then the necessities of a modern day 15 year old. We all need food, water, and shelter like I said before, but I’d say we need some form of communication such as a phone. But most importantly we all need love. It’s a natural human instinct to love because it’s the beginning to reproducing which is the entire purpose of a species. I don’t want to keep going on a tangent but the necessities of life vary based on who you ask. Just don’t ask me.
