HAP - You're not alone in wondering about these things. It's amazing how many of the things we think we have to have can be done without.
Chris - Good for you but I'm willing to bet most of these guys have never heard of Harlan County USA. Many of them don't know what a 'company town' is or what that means is real world terms.
Most of the people in the US don't know enough history to understand that the real estate market we know today is a pretty recent innovation and that before WWII (certainly before WWI) the chance of anyone in their family ever owning their own home was slim to none.
They have no idea that their current standard of living is the result of trades and labor organising for improved conditions, that it's the difference between what we have and what we think of as impoverished third world conditions.
Physics always wins
. . . . so get that helmet cam!
