We are living in a healthy, rich and safe world. We have everything we need in life. Poverty is increased from 50% of the population to 20% of the population. This is a big difference and a good sign to show that we are doing well. People are living healthier and live longer. You could say we are living in utopia: an ideally perfect place, especially in its social, political and moral aspects. But still we desire for more. We still think we have to reach for something that could be a reason that people are searching for the extreme. For example being self- sufficient. Self- sufficiency means progress because it means that you are independent. Some extreme examples of self- sufficiency.
The big wild collect book (Het grote wildplukboek) of Edwin Flores tells you how to survive of the plants and nature in the forest.
