Tell me Sonam you once said that you lived off the grid as I recall - what happened with that? Did you think it would be more effective to warn people about the dangers of capitalism by owning a computer, paying bills, using money, buying things, owning or renting a home, buying food instead of farming it, owning property inside your home, that kind of thing. Like, you're on a mission from God kind of thing, but for now you're kind of sleeping with the enemy for the sake of the cause?
This is your litany, "owning a computer, paying bills, using money, buying things, owning or renting a home,". About that, on many point I reduce my consumption, long time ago I do not play that game. But what do you prove, I should not eat, or sleep under a roof (of course I didn't "buy" a house) and using a computer, in the kind of society we're living in, allow me to do some translations, stay informed with alternative media, communicate with peoples I like, and so on.
But is that the only argument you have ... we are speaking of a Main Rapt of the Planet by very sick peoples only interested by accumulation of objects and power to satisfy their ego, not interseted by others, and with very short views because theu don't even think of their own children. And you come to me speaking about gadgets they give us to keep us traped in their clutches.
No, I'm definitely not on the same side than those guys, and I won't play their game, and it's ok if I eat and have a roof and have a computer.
