Granted… This is just a matter of how you define an “enabler” and who counts as one.
I was almost going to add something like that to my post. At some level, are we all extensively enabled by enablers? Every time I take a bite to eat, I am “enabled” by . . .
[li] The farmer(s) that grew whatever I ate.[/li][li] The whole supply chain from the farmer to my table and all the people working there.[/li][li] The whole automotive and petroleum industry that gave me my car and fuel to go shopping.[/li][li] The whole industry and its workers who gave me my stove and oven.[/li][li] Etc., ad infinitum[/li][li] Well, you get the idea.[/li][/ul]
Here’s a “thought experiment” that I actually carried out in real life once:
To what extent can most of us truly become a hermit, totally or partially independent of all dependence on everyone? What happens when you need to see a doctor? Who will cut your hair for you?
When I wanted to become a complete and total hermit, I thought about it for several years and settled upon becoming a semi-hermit, living in a rural area, but within driving distance of a small town where I could do whatever business I needed. It became relevant to me, that I began to understand the whole network of supporting businesses and their employees as “enablers” in a sense.
(ETA: For various reasons, I’m not living like that any more, but like Cthulhu, I sleep, dreaming.)
