Abstract(s)
The effective solution of environmental problems calls for changes in levels of consumption. Sociologists have described both moderation in households of high socio-economic status in affluent countries, and a type of modesty which cannot be a response to the experience of abundance. However, its essence is not the way of life of a traditional community. Sustainable living based on self-restraint could be considered to be a symptom of the summit of cultural evolution to date. Nevertheless, historical experience warns us against making too much of contemporary cases of moderation.
