We can treat the starving masses with "dignity" and yet they will still die for lack of martial sustenance. Utopias ALWAYS fail.

Everything fails.  Life ends in death, and even universes can die. So what?  Still might as well try.

Learning how to live more cheaply and with less crap is hardly a .... utopia .... dream. 

I'm sure that a lot of people here were actually alive during the 60s and 70s, and weren't simply born "yesterday", so they learned a long time ago what the System is really all about. The many anti-System "movements" of the 60s and 70s terrified the power brokers, so they came up with a solution: inflation. When it costs $1800 for rent instead of $100, it's easy to control the ahh ... whatjamacallems.

Um, I think it's all those add thingys all over his page.  Also, he is prob getting a kickback from Tammi and others who don't want us to have any fun, just work till we die in the traces. 

As for me and my house, we will drive my van.

LOL, who cares what "Rob" says... who is that anyway? Wink
I see you all met Mr Sunshine, my name for Rob.
Talking trash about nomad living and probably watching dollars rolling in.
Humanity has not always been chasing its tail to get more.

History is modified to make people think consumerism and corporatism is normal historical human behavior.

Opting out is a hidden choice.

"Opting In" is never presented as a choice. It is the default by design. Citizen by Birth.

"Rob" is just another agent of disinformation on the Internet.
I had a dream last night in which I effectively lived a kind of opting out. It was post- the kind of apocalypse in which only humans had died, except two of my friends. We had been trying to figure out how to secure together a series of disconnected and open-ended but structurally still fairly intact corridors strewn randomly about the ground, the only housing available, from the weather to create a livable space. We finally figured out how to seal everything up and almost exactly when we realized how to solve the problem, I randomly looked to one side down one of the corridors and saw the enormous head of a grizzly bear move up into its frame.

We can only opt out so much, because we are part of the world.
Confused  Undecided Sad  Huh

Ding, you might be interested in watching "10 Cloverfield Lane" (2016) the movie. Almost exactly congruent with your dream. Amazingly, the only radio channel that was working had Rob on it, can you believe. (oops, gave away the surprise ending, JK).

Also, Cloverfield (2008), earlier in the same genre. Nice dystopic, end-of-the-world stuff - if you're game. You can watch clips from both on youtube.

Protoplasm always craves material things, even my pet amoeba asked for a seashell to sleep under. No escaping biological nature.
