The Simple Life

Radio Smart Talk for Wednesday, August 22:

You’ve probably heard people say they long for a simpler time.  What does that really mean?  Is a simpler time when there were no computers or are they looking to go back even further to when all televisions were black and white and gas cost 30 cents a gallon?  Maybe a simpler time is just a perception of the past.

Life today is complicated and fast-paced.  Our society utilizes many devices that are considered time-saving or to make life easier.  But do they really?

Elizabethtown College in Lancaster County offers a seminar called “The Simple Life” that challenges students to “step back, examine their lives and consider living an alternative lifestyle characterized by less consumption, greater awareness of their surroundings and productive action. “  Students are also asked to “reconsider living in a world founded on materialism and consumerism, and instead, address the wastefulness of our society and seek sustainable alternatives.”

The award-winning seminar instructor, Dr. Michele Kozimor-King, an associate professor of sociology at Elizabethtown, will be on guest on Wednesday’s Radio Smart Talk to discuss the seminar and the idea behind it.
