When I say "modern world" I mean one with indoor plumbing and where I don't need to kill the food I eat-it arrives nicely packaged and not resembling its former (live) self.
You want to know the funny part-I would LOVE to live simply.
I could live without electricity. I could live with only a fire to cook on-a fire to keep me warm. I would have no problem walking/riding horses/using horse and buggy. I could learn to sew by hand, gather more "nuts and berries". I would love to labor all day in a garden and tending a house-rising with the sun, sleeping with the night.
However, I draw the line at outhouses and no facilities at all. Perhaps my Mom told me too many spider and snake stories about her youth and outhouses. Ok-I know this played a huge hand in it. Still does.
I can't even stand watching fish hooked on a line or flopping on a pier. And cows. pigs, chickens? They are Cute.
Do you think I could eat it after I watched reality?
Yes, I KNOW where meat comes from...it doesn't mean I have to think about it.
I prefer aesthetically pleasing plucked, washed, cut, wrapped and "approved" meat Thank you very much.
God help me if one of those "doomsday" scenarios ever plays out in my lifetime.....
