Comment on All Ecology is Island Ecology

Funny you write this because I was in the midst of romanticizing the island where we live as self-sufficient high-tech nomads when I got sucked into thinking of the cycle we will inevitably fall in. You put it beautifully,
The new world in the morning, is the old world at dusk.

There will always be those who will get tired of my romantic nomad ideals and decide to stay put and get what they need from others. And there will always be those who will acknowledge that some like to stay put and will offer them their services. (That is how my island will become a trailer park). And so on and so forth, that is how our economies at one point started: someone didn't want to—or couldn't—do something and someone else did it for them.
