Modern Life is Rubbish.

Whether it’s cafes selling you the paleo diet, free love hippies lamenting the loss of our polyamorous past or your pushy gym instructor screaming at you to get out of that office chair there is no shortage of people harking back to simpler times when human beings lived in harmony with nature.
