Standard of Living Quality of Life
You mentioned that you are the living proof of though standard of living declined but quality of life improved. Can you throw more light on the sentence to that I can understand it better ?
I was going to ask the same question but thinking about it, I'm assuming he means downsizing and becoming more self-sufficient improves your quality of life….as in living closer to nature is more fullfilling than buying 3D tv's and other flashy rubbish that nobody really needs.
It would be nice if Mr Martenson could elaborate on this topic though and share some insights..
