The concept of Voluntary Simplicity and the lifestyle it promotes is noble indeed and readily available to anyone who is motivated to adopt its principles. In any society where the most prescribed drugs are antidepressants, the evidence to support a more simple lifestyle (allbeit with access to necessary services and utilities) becomes overwhelming.

It seems as though the more we develop technology to make life easier, we also make it more complex as a consequence. We can't go back to the 50s and rewrite the following 60 years, but we can forego our dependence on the synthesised life of the 21st century; not by eschewing the trimmings but by looking through our windows and seeing genuinely what is out there, in nature, to soothe the modern soul and to put ourselves in a position whereby we can have more frequent access to our natural habitat.
