Why doesn’t anyone, even environmentalists, propose actually living sustainably?

Have you heard anyone propose as a solution to our environmental problems actually living sustainably?

I haven’t. It would work—that is, if everyone lived sustainably, humanity collectively would live sustainably. By contrast, if no one lived sustainably, such as we are now, how can we collectively live sustainably? We can’t. We can’t all live unsustainably, yet somehow magically collectively live sustainably.

Why not try it? Why doesn’t anyone try it?

Is the prospect of living sustainably so horrible?

Why does no one suggest or consider it, even environmentalists?

Have you heard anyone suggest it?

I hadn’t thought about how simple the concept yet utterly absent from anyone even talking about it.
