Sometimes it is easy for sci-fi/fantasy authors to write about exotic people without really understanding different cultures of their own world.  They write about primitive people who are superstitious and usually … well, inept.  I ran across this video by a very simple man named Jon Jandai who claims that life is easy – and “so simple.”  While his english is not exquisite, his ideas are quite elegant and charming – as are the ideas of many people in cultures that are less “civilized” than our own.  That’s why I wanted to share this post: it is both insightful as an author writing about different cultures and it is insightful as an individual who grew up being told that education was everything.  I got my B.A.  I got my J.D.  I got my certificate allowing me to put “Esquire” on my letterhead.  But after all of that, I think Jon Jandai has a better grasp on living a life of happiness than I do.  I hope you enjoy the video.  Let me know what you think by commenting below.
