Some things are just antisocial. They may even be antisocial enough to
be elevated to the point of being illegal. That's part of the point of
society rather than us all running around like extras in a Mad Max movie.

This is where the term crass comes from.
Profiteering on a luxury good is still crass, even if it isn't quite to
the level where it could get outlawed due to social backlash.
