Don't blame yourself when the solution you choose is not perfect. Don't feel bad if there's some "new thing" that you either don't want or can't afford. As with most things in life, good can be good enough, and acceptance of that can lead to greater life satisfaction. Banishing discrimination and expanding opportunity does not require the demise of bourgeois culture.
There's more choice, but people actually end up poorer. The more options we have, the less likely we are to end up satisfied with our choice.
