Welcome To 2030: I Own Nothing, Have No Privacy And Life Has Never Been Better

>By Ida Auken

>Ida Margrete Meier Auken (born 22 April 1978, in Frederiksberg) is a Danish politician and member of Parliament [1] from the Danish Social Liberal Party. She was Minister for the Environment of Denmark from 2011 to 2014.

>Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city - or should I say, "our city." I don't own anything. I don't own a car. I don't own a house. I don't own any appliances or any clothes.

>It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service. We have access to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we need in our daily lives. One by one all these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us to own much.

>First communication became digitized and free to everyone. Then, when clean energy became free, things started to move quickly. Transportation dropped dramatically in price. It made no sense for us to own cars anymore, because we could call a driverless vehicle or a flying car for longer journeys within minutes. We started transporting ourselves in a much more organized and coordinated way when public transport became easier, quicker and more convenient than the car. Now I can hardly believe that we accepted congestion and traffic jams, not to mention the air pollution from combustion engines. What were we thinking?

>Sometimes I use my bike when I go to see some of my friends. I enjoy the exercise and the ride. It kind of gets the soul to come along on the journey. Funny how some things seem never seem to lose their excitement: walking, biking, cooking, drawing and growing plants. It makes perfect sense and reminds us of how our culture emerged out of a close relationship with nature.

Is degreasing just a meme perpetuated by autistic roadies?
What's the point in taking all the oil off something just to put it back on again?
Wiping down your chain and keeping it oiled makes sense, checking for chain elongation makes sense, degreasing seems like autism.
