OK.  The subtext and humor is all very French, but...

We were building Passive Solar homes (and commercial/religious/government buildings) in Wyoming back in the early 80s...

An entire subdivision in Lander even.

But not enough people cared/wanted to buy them to make it viable.

I mean, who wants a house that will heat itself to 54deg with no grid/fossil fuel input when it's well below zero outside.  AND is designed to ventilate itself to 10 degrees below external ambient in the summer without fans.  Madness!  ::)
Anarchy ungodly? See 1 Sam. 8

The desire to control the life of others is more evil than the desire to simply kill them.
The desire to control the life of others by proxy, through “voting”, is just as evil… but more cowardly.

Yes, all this stuff is a "waste" until you need it.
Give them your teeth, not your belly.
