Question: A simple life is a happy life. Do you agree?
Answer: I would say yes with an important condition.
Yes we can live a happy, simple life, spending energy and resources only at fulfilling our basic, comfortable, modern, natural necessities…as long as we spend all the rest of our energy and effort on building unique, positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing Human interconnections with each other.
True happiness, true pleasures, a qualitatively much higher level living is possible only through such connections, through an unprecedented, collective, mutual Human existence.
