Well, Trance Freak sent me here, so I'll make an offering.
Although I am an American I live on a farm where I purposefully do many things in very old-fashioned ways.
I mow the fields with a scythe.  I dig irrigation ditches by hand (for fun).  I gather up old tools and machinery.
Visitors get a big surprise if the only America they know is from movies.
How about you?
Frank

Thanks, Mimouni,
I do too, but it is not easy in my "greater (and yet lesser) world".
People have been dazzled by high technology and the excesses of energy use.  In the process, they are missing so much.
Americans (not only, but probably more than anyone else) are slaves to consumption.

I didn't quite understand what you meant to say.

But, I wasn't kidding about Americans being slaves to consumption.
