I still don't understand how someone choosing to live in nature excludes people who choose not to. It's a personal choice and it doesn't affect anyone but the person making it.

I agree that anprim is individualist. My point was that anprims do a horrible job of articulating that this isn't viable for a lot of people, and don't bother presenting sustainable alternatives for them.

So it is understandable why the first response from a lot of people would be "this doesn't apply to me"/"this excludes me". As I mentioned, anprims often go so far as to criticize people who do rely on technology.

When you're used to being attacked and excluded, that's what you come to expect. Although I do understand that anprims have no intention to do this, I can see why it is interpreted that way.
