  • I don't so much. I always want things the most that I can have but shouldn't, like the forbidden fruit. No one's going to stop me from taking it, I just shouldn't because the consequences are going to be dire.

  • We have an insatiable want for goods. Conflating this insatiable desire with wanting what you can't have isn't a correct assertion.

    We just want things, both things that we CAN have (hence we have it) and things that we can't have (which we dont).
