You are fanatical about your method of producing boats - no question about that. You have repeatedly stated in every way imaginable that any other method of design and construction is "stupid".
You are fanatical about your lifestyle choices - no question about that - very few people want to spend their lives alone on small boats, no family etc.
Most people also want to make a contribution to society over their lives, not simply live minimally and then suck on the public tit in their old age.
Yes Brent, you ARE a fanatic.
"My way is the only true and right way" - Sound familiar?
By enabling people to get off the consumerism( Squanderism ) treadmill early and affordably , I have enable them to cut their environmental foot print by over 90% in some matters. That is no small contribution. I have reduced my own personal environmental foot print exponentially over my lifetime, and over the indefinite lifetimes of future generations, which I never created.
That is no small contribution.
I have enabled people to build roller furlers for under $150, anchor winches for under $25, self steering for under $50,540 GPD water makers for under $800, hulls in a matter of days instead of months, taught youth how to do my job, lobbied effectively for legal changes to protect spousal abuse victims and date rape victims , defended such victims, campaigned for protection of our health care system, and kept no trade secrets. That is no small contribution.
And you say I should feel guilty about not screwing up the futures of your own children and grandchildren, etc, or for lobbying effectively to keep their lives safer.?
My critics often live lifestyles which would take several more planets to sustain. I don't. You say I should?
You suck the squanderism tit of unsustainable environmental degradation, for short term trinkets and toys, killing your children's futures in the proccess.
One's personal environmental foot print is measured by how much money they go thru, period!
