Re: Opposition to liveaboards

People who have spent their lives catering to the relevance of money , feel their entire belief system threatened, when anyone demonstrates the ability to make money and the power it supposedly gives it's diciples , less relevant , proving the consumer religion on which money grubbers base their lives, a bit of a folly, especially when such lower income people end up with a happier and freer life than they do..

I have often been vehemently attacked, for enabling low income people to have better boats than the rich have, without their having to grovel to wealth.
