Regardless of how you go about it, one must always 'work' for food, shelter, safety, ect. It's as natural as breathing. So, no. I do not feel it's un-natural in the slightest.

I sure do. In fact, I believe we'd all be better off if we still lived in a world without technology. We're too reliant on it. If we end up having to go back to basics in some kind of desolate world scenario, 90 percent of the worlds population is screwed.

I worked a part time job at ten dollars an hour, four hours a day, up to twenty hours a week. I bought little, and could still pay rent (living with a roommate). I bought entertainments in bulk, got food from the food bank, purchased in bulk from grocers, and learned how to cook. It is incredibly cheap to survive in a modern society, if you can resist meaningless materialism and meaningless luxuries like television and such.
P.S. I can pay for high speed internet too!
edit: I quit that job because it was a telemarketing sales job and I was so depressed that I almost walked in front of a truck.edit on 12-2-2011 by SmedleyBurlap because: (no reason given)

How do you feel about Egypt right now? In 'your perfect world of unicorns and candy' where you don't have to work, don't have technology, just have you and your chickens you'd be... sitting there, asking "what's an Egipt?" You wouldn't have any possibility to travel, to see the world. To see a different landscape, to meet different people, to feel romance... that's certainly worth giving up.
