There are many ways to understand this:
1) Thinking about it a long time.
2) Seeing your children looking at you, slowly and painfully dying because of lack of medicines... while others waste their money in luxury cars, buy another luxury car while the first is still OK, etc.
3) Etc.

I don't think I was. Anyway, you can be in a place without being invited, you know.

It's a luxury for him? Could he travel safely, with the same efficiency, by another less expensive(*) means?

(*) The ones who end up paying that... are other people, of course. That money could be spent in public health, for example. So it's not an unimportant matter. The question is not trivial to answer.
