Absolutely beautiful and spot on Chakotay ! We are all enslaved and we dont know it. I have often longed for a life more simple in a rainforest
somewheres. Im sure I could adjust and thrive. Sadly I have a wife and Daughters who just wouldnt buy it. Im a slave to modernity. You tell folk this
idea, and they say "sure, well go back to the trees". I say why not, no need to give up modern medical advancements, but almost anything else i can
think of, we could do without, if we tried. If ever we have a global nuke war, we may well have to anyway. If im honest with myself however, There are
also many things Id be hard pressed to give up too. The more complex life becomes the bigger the mess we make of things.( think enviroment).
The simpler the life we live, the more in touch with nature and spiritual
development we are.
My kids fight over computer games and the like, and I think to myself, kids in third world countries, ive never seen them fight, nothing to fight
I would love to build a wooden cabin and live without societys madness, aka grizzly adams, far from citys and roads and cars , and pollution.
What revelations await in the mind of a man who can hear himself think!
