53. And so then a question...
If we are beyond the point of no return, why bother voluntarily living a life of simplicity now when we'll be forced to do so soon enough? Certainly, there are reasons to learn how to do things like raise crops, butcher game, preserve food, mend clothes, repair bicycles, and a whole bunch more, and I think as a matter of self-reliance far more people should know how to do those things. But suppose I know how to do those things and more, and suppose I believe that the 1890's are poised to make a big comeback in ten or so years...what is my incentive to NOT live it up now in the twilight of the golden age?
