What do you depend on?

When I want friends and new acquaintances to see the value in what I'm doing, I ask them a few questions:
  1. What do you depend on for your way of life?
  2. How healthy are those dependencies?
  3. Are you able to maintain their health, or are you helpless to protect the things you depend on?
Most people understand their financial dependencies, but have no idea what dependencies they have beyond earning an income, and certainly no idea about their health.

It's a good exercise though - try answering the questions. If it helps, try to rephrase the first one: what dependencies does our society have for its collective way of life?

If you're interested in discussing, feel free to email me!
