Simpler and More Fulfilling

Voluntary Simplicity can have many aspects, and as this well written article shows it does not necessarily have to be about consuming less. The article is entitled "A Blindness to Systems" and published on The Archdruid Report by John Greer.

This quote from his essay should get you curious: "What would you say, if I told you that I’ve come up with a way to eliminate unemployment – yes, even in the face of the current economic mess? What if I explained that it would also improve the effective standard of living of many families and decrease their income tax burdens? And that it would also increase our economic resilience and sustainability, and simultaneously cause a significant decrease in the amount of automobile traffic? Would you be all for it?" His answer is not new, but it can be a key to a simpler yet richer, i.e. more fulfilled, life for some of us.
