    yes, but flow-riders comment was about people who *could* be on six figure salaries but choose to live simple lives in nimbin. Were not talking about the general population of money poor/ happiness rich people (hippy or not) of which there are plenty, but not necessarily able to achive high...

    yep. theres probably 20 of them. Like i said. outliers. But many of them also flipped that table after amassing enough wealth not to worry about where the next meal is coming from for the rest of their lives. Many live off passive incomes.

    I absolutely have been to Nimbin. enjoyed a certain festival there a few times. Most of the people there there who are living a basic life are doing so because they aren't wealthy , not the other way around. Bit hard to generate wealth when you're smashed or employment-diverse lol...

    yeah thats the sort of change thats required (at the institutional level). But the snowball may not be all positive in the short to medium term, just like early shuttering of coal powerplants is likley to lead to increased energy costs.

    That sucks. Lots of people don't invest in unethical companies, true. However vast majority of us do through our super. To not invest in unethical companies through your super, you have to be active in your investment allocations. Most people don't even know they can make such changes or feel...

    do you have superannuation? if you do, chances are you're benefiting financially from all this. remember publicly listed companies have a responsibility to their shareholders. Traditionally that means pump the dividend above all else. You could argue that in todays world not reinvesting into...

    I suspect they dont need much looking after if theyre willing to lay down arms for a cuppa.

    Yep, this. Obviously theres always a danger you'd get shot in the face, but I suspect getting shot in teh face vs a gulag or some other form of inhumane treatment would be preferable. Bonus if it just ends up being a cuppa and a biccie instead.

    I have no drive to be a show off or keep up with the dudes at the trails. I just enjoy the time in the bush burning calories. If i have some fun along the way and dont get hurt, its a bonus :) That said, I am riding much better and more confidently than when i started. Just dont have any...
