Super Size America, Is Bigger Better?

What do you think about this statement regarding America?


"In a culture comprised of 5% of the world population, using 75% of the world's resources, we have come to accept excess as a way of life and a standard to subscribe to."

Do you feel this way is true? Bigger is better?  I currently live in a 775 square foot apartment and I drive a 7 year old VW Jetta so I do not personally subscribe to this way of thinking.  Not only because I live an urban lifestyle, but too much "stuff" tends to stress me out.  I did not grow up in a large house so I am not used to having massive extra space and stuff.  

Do you work harder to buy more "stuff"? or do you work hard for other reasons?  I like to challenge myself, and I like nice clothes and shoes, but even if I had the money I don't think I would buy a McMansion or a giant auto.

I would rather travel and have memories than fancy "stuff".

Would be great to hear other opinions on this topic.
