Because I did. I put in a large garden for the first time this year, started seriously discussing getting chickens and rabbits with my wife, I bought a spinning wheel and a loom with my stimulus check, and have been making plans for installing an electricity-free refrigerator in the shed. Hell, even just today, I saw some crayfish while my wife and I were swimming in the creek, and my first thought was “I should buy a minnow trap to catch crayfish with.”
Yes, I know, I’m a fucking weirdo. And while I’m not fearful for the end of the world, I just sometimes get freaked out by how dependent we all are on technology and external forces to meet our basic needs. Surely, I’m not the only one?
