The herd animals always stick together and for that matter die together as well. In some instances its a strategy that works and in others the odds are not in your favor. I’ve been in a similar situation before and declined an invitation to join a primitive living survival group. But I’m more connected to my own lifestyle. Alas the technology today is as dangerous as it is useful. I understand it better than I do living in a tepee. Visiting the third world in ok for a while. I just don’t envision living there permanently.
