The problem with this is that a lot of "unessentials" are required for
various reasons. I have a lot of things which are not essential, but I
have to have them because that's just how our society is.

I'd be perfectly willing to do without a lot of things I spend money
on, but I'd also be unable to travel, do business, interface with the
government, etc.

We have created a system in which survival == money. You can no longer
"live off the land" or even live simply.

We should be applying our technology toward simplification of life, but
we are still going rapidly in the opposite direction.
