The way out of consumerism

Is to cease being a mindless consumer and instead be a producer. It’s too hard for someone with attachments to rewild as it requires giving up things and people close to us, some of whom depend on us. In those situations rewilding becomes an intensely selfish act. I’m not that selfish.

Hence the woodwork. It used to be commonplace and most people could handle the little jobs that come up. No so much anymore, so someone has to build the skill and there is a small amount of opportunity there. That’s what the tools are for. But I may have gone more than a little overboard.
