    There are other paths to an "extreme" simple lifestyle. Religious orders of the major faiths is one example. Even living in communes or kibbutzes where property is held collectively is an example of...

    Maybe I'm naive, but at this time, bikes seem to be winning. However, if driverless cars ever become popular, I worry that they won't be able to cope with bikes on the same roads.
