The word ‘need’ implies necessity. In my mind, a need is dire. To go without would result in irreparable if not fatal consequences. When you say need, do you have an entirely different definition in mind?

I need water every day. I need food on a regular basis. I need shelter from the elements. I need access to medical services. Not sure if there is anything else I need. There is a lot I desire and there are many things I am expected to do by society: have a job, follow laws, pay taxes, et cetera – but do I really need to do those things? I think not, I want to do them because it makes sense to do them in a civilized society. What do you need? Versus what do you want?
