Luxury is to relative to expectations and where you are in history. Modern life for the average person in the USA is incredibly luxurious compared to 200 years ago. Is indoor plumbing a luxury? Not now but it certainly was not that long ago. Jet travel is an amazing luxury compared the options for travel 200 years ago. Jet travel started out with luxury pricing now its readily available to people of average means.

Almost every new technology starts as luxury. Trying to better our lives or even just make them more comfortable and convenient is a good thing. If humans did not do this, we'd still be living in caves with a life expectancy of 20 years.
