13. Absolutely spot-on.


Absolutely spot-on. I'm the type of person who enjoys cultivating various life-skills: gardening, basic repair and maintenance of machines, cutting firewood, etc. But I don't for a moment operate under the illusion that these practices make me some sort of self-sufficient island unto myself. Every day I benefit from humanity's past & present collective contributions to civilization. I am grateful for it, and will try in my own small ways to also contribute to the common good as we go forward together on this small planet.
