Because I live in America, I can get to the fjord much much faster by working than by training myself in woodcraft, ship building, and becoming a master sailor the likes of which could sail across the open ocean.
The flexibility/freedom afforded to me by paying for it with money also enables me to do things other than sailing, should I choose. Had I dedicated my life to becoming a sailor and shipbuilder, my experiences would be limited to the oceans.
But instead, a couple years after visiting the fjord, I can take a helicopter ride over the ruins of Peru, and I don't have to walk to Peru, either - I could drive, fly, or take a cruise - and I'd have earned every cent of the money used to pay for them. The fjord may then seem less significant at that point, due to the variety of exotic experiences I would have had. However, it is my responsibility alone to maintain my mindset, and this is just part of the human condition. We are designed to find the second slice of cake less delicious than the first, and to find the eighth slice of cake altogether repulsive. Dismantling capitalism would remove all of the cake altogether.
