We are holding this demonstration because we want to be happy. Luxury is a means to achieve happiness. A peaceful demonstration of the desires is also a form of collective happiness because the desire for luxury unites us, although the word luxury has a different meaning for every individual: for some people it means a luxury to possess an original art piece, while for others it can just mean having some free time. Luxury, material or immaterial, is an absolute value but our perception of luxury is a relative one.
