Do we humans have enough elbow room – enough room or space to live, move, work, and think freely and independently without being overly restricted, regulated, herded or conformed in order to coexist? Is it natural for us to live in crowded spaces?
While there are still spaces with plenty of elbow room, today’s modern world and modern way-of-life presents a perceived requirement to live and work in regions where there is very little elbow room…in order to achieve the ‘modern lifestyle’ and measure of ‘success’.
‘Back in the day’, there were far more people who lived in regions with plenty of elbowroom – regions which naturally fostered independent-minded lifestyles – regions which developed unique styles of thinking and living – perhaps out of necessity.
