A lot of progressive values are the default if you’re poor. Eating less meat, not using cars, consuming less electricity, buying local food. While someone in Brooklyn will pay exorbitant amounts (and attention) to bicycle to work, eat organic food and minimize their carbon footprint, this is what a poor Sri Lankan does by default.
It’s actually kinda funny. Development means more consumption – you move from the bus to a motorbike, bike to car, car to plane. In the same way, you go from hal maso to chicken to burgers and processed food. Then, it seems that after a certain point, you develop awareness that this was kinda a bad idea and go back, except with an iPad.
