I've lived in the wilderness it's... not that great.
This, essentially, is where we differ.
I'm an archaeologist. I've lived in the wild for weeks at a time. I've pooped in holes, bathed in ice-melt streams, and subsisted on only non-perishable and foraged food. Free time was for crafting, reading, exploring, and playing games. No cell phone service. No electricity. It ******** rocks. And I don't believe you've ever done it, city boy.
I actually lived most of my life in the sub-urbs but.
I mean I've got camping before, who hasn't? xp
You mean you'd want to live like that for years on end; never having a break?
Riddle me this, how would you have even gotten a basic education in archaeology if you were living in the forest like a nomad?
Did you have hand sanitzer, pots and pans, first aid kits?
None of that would exist if we spent 24/7 out in the woods, eventually someone has to get a normal job, make this stuff etc. How do you compensate for these goods, pay for them? If you don't produce more than is needed to survive you don't get growth as a society.
I hate cities though.
I'd rather live in a rural or sub-urban area but, with great technology and whatnot.
