To be or not to be, that is the question?

 I have noticed that if I think too much about sustainability issues, pondering on the local and global scale, I tend to slip into the mindset of Hamlet, wondering about the meaning of it all with an imaginary skull in my hand, standing on a mountain of waste…

 To be, or not to be: that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous consumption,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by voluntary simplifying end them?

 

To consume: to sleep; No more;

and by consumption to say we end

The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to,’tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish’d?
