Just What Is My Responsibility?
Let's pretend that you have decided to gear down to
the level where hundreds of millions of people on
this planet live. Here's a starter kit on how to get
"First, take out the furniture: leave a few old
blankets, a kitchen table, maybe a wooden chair.
You've never had a bed, remember?
Second, throw out your clothes. Each person in the

blouse. The head of the family has the only pair of
Third, all kitchen appliances have vanished. Keep a
box of matches, a small bag of flour, some sugar and
salt, a handful of onions, a dish of dried beans.
Rescue the moldy potatoes from the garbage can:
those are tonight's meal.
Fourth, dismantle the bathroom, shut off the running
water, take out the wiring and the lights and
