I most certainly do, but you shouldn't apply your standards of what the bare minimum is. I enjoy my life to the maximum I can, you can consider it wasteful, or basic, or whatever it is you desire. Do I like to burn gas in big car? God yes. Do I toss whatever I want in the garbage? Hell yes. Do I eat a lot of meat? T-bone steaks every week! Do I care that my house has basically gravel for a garden? Absolutely not.Andro wrote: ↑Jul 12th, 2018 10:15 amWith every freedom comes some responsibility. Adults can generally understand this concept. You are free to do as you please, within the law, but one would think a rational human being strives for more than just a bare minimum. Human life evolved beyond basic survival and consumption.
As a fellow Canadian you should understand these concepts very well.
So ya I enjoy all that, I also enjoy helping my elderly neighbors at my cottage cut and split wood at the cottage so they can still be able to live there during the spring and fall. I help them carry heavy loads to and from their boats if needed, heck I'll weed their damn gardens if they need it. I may not give two hells about what you find important and you may not give two hells what I find important but the fact is everyone lives their lives their own way and you should learn to respect that. You drive a Nissan Leaf? Good for you. I drive a V8 from 2006, well good for me. I hope we both enjoy our cars and I don't fault you for having that opportunity.
Everyone gets through life their own way and how they want. I don't need to help my elderly neighbors, but I want to so I do. I don't need to drive a V8 gas guzzler, but I want to so I do. Are these bare minimum things? Sure. At least I think so, maybe others wouldn't. But they're free to do what they want and I'm free to do what I want so I will. Stop judging start living
