@ "Just Thinking": You maybe might feel that way...
--- but there are many who find OUR way of living sick, sad and unworthy, and everything our "education" has to offer useless, poisenous and destructive.
And, although some "accident of birth" has placed me in the "developed" world I can somewhat see why.
Who are you do judge and despise their way of living? I am sorry for you who can't see beyond your fence.
Maria Theresa refused to spend the rest of her old days in "Western Europe" saying she couldn't face the poverty and misery. She talked about a spiritual poverty rather than a material one, showing that there are different views on the world, and how numb we have become to big parts of it.
I hope that the way of life of those "People Close To nature" will survive as long as they choose it. As it implies there to remain some of that nature to start with...
Haven't actually been thinking that much, have you.
