It’s something of a mystery for me, and its bothersome in the way that things are bothersome when they lie just outside of your understanding. Why is it that people feel the need to disparage or make fun of those who choose live with less, to take the precautionary road, and avoid such things that they consider dangerous. In some way the attitude is related to normal biases, such as the ones humanity often takes up against people in different class distinctions or racial groups. Is it because we feel somehow that their choice to avoid questionable things casts doubt on our own character? Perhaps you can offer me some insight.
