Why do we love the brands but buy the fakes?

I don't buy fakes.
Most of the people I know that buy fakes do so because they cannot afford the real thing. However, I finally got one friend of mine to see the light when I showed her that by saving all the money she was spending on fakes she could get a nice, quality bag that would last longer. She stopped buying the fakes.
As for why people who have the money to buy them will still buy fakes, I don't know. I feel that if you think there is something wrong with spending that kind of money on a bag, then you should be consistent in your stance and not buy a fake that makes it even LOOK like you DID spend that much on a bag. In my opinion it says that you are still too focused on giving a certain impression, even if you don't want to spend the money to give that impression.
I just don't like the fact that it basically it supporting a form of "plagiarism." I never get into discussions about whether it supports terrorism or drug cartels, but I still think that it is bad.
