I agree, it is all but impossible to step too far away.
It's being selfish or so I am told by those who won't let others simply live their lives as they see fit.
I believe that in attempting to civilise ourselves we are in fact domesticating and training many to be what they would not wish to be.
I could be wide of the mark but why else are so many suffering mentally - behaviour mirroring that of animals kept in cages? To my eye, they sense something wrong but believe it is themselves and their ability to succeed/lack of help, rather than their environment.
