50 Shades of Grey: Ancestral Consumption and Conceptual Compromise
Ancestral consumption is the intentional engagement in behaviors approximating the ideal or authentic self. Modern modes of consumption are rejected in favor of more naturalistic behaviors, such as barefoot running, caveman diets, and home-birthing. Inherent in ancestral consumption are conceptual compromises, which involve trade-offs between the authentic and the attainable.
