Was that targeted at my statement about off-grid small communities that are sustainable?
I’m not saying a circle of dirty unabomber shacks.
I’m talking about an actual community, with homes built to code, modern utilities, schools, medical clinics (that vaccinate). Just done using the best practices from the past blended with contemporary tech to create a healthy sustainable society. Every person would be more involved and have greater purpose and value. I feel like we need that.
Mega metropolis that factory produce everything with most of their population living sedentary. Working bureaucratic jobs that produce nothing of real need or value. Trading services to the created “needs” spawned from boredom and predatory marketing. Huge wealth gap.
As Peter Gibbons said in Office Space:
“ We weren't meant to spend it this way! Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements!”
Mike Judge is a genius.
Individual humans can think logically and make great choices. In teams we can communicate and accomplish bigger goals. In very large groups, we are the stupidest animals on earth. I truly believe that.
