Abstract

But the quality of life, the quality of the air, the quality of the water, the quality of the food, all those things are important to me... [M]y attitude, I think, is made possible by the world as it has become in the late twentieth century. We live in what is basically a global village, and by being in a remote part of a remote island in a remote corner of the Pacific doesn’t necessarily cut us off from sources of information. So I believe we have the best of both worlds. One doesn’t become a rustic peasant because one lives in a remote place any more (foreign immigrant to Akaroa, cited in Hay, 1990, 206).
