Perhaps this entry should be deleted
It takes a phrase that has myriad interpretations through history and assumes it to be a synonym for lives of voluntary simplicity and then provides some meagre references to a few such "simple life" ideas.
If the article is not to be deleted, it needs to be expanded dramatically to include other notions of the good life and full historical surveys of both the philosophical notion and the usage of the term. Failing that, it seems to me it would be better to remove both the sub heads and just leave it a brief stubTheCormac (talk) 00:25, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
- Upon reflection and after viewing the Wiki guidelines on deletion of articles (here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion), I followed the advice of those guidelines and rather than nominate the article for deletion I acted "boldly" to fix it be deleting the two sections of tangental materially (neither of which contained a single footnote, or sourcing reference.) As I explained above, I believe this article is stronger and more neutral as the much shorter stub it is now rendered. TheCormac (talk) 00:34, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
