Unfortunately, that's impossible due to human nature.

The sea change it would take for the developed world's population to want simpler lives and less tech isn't likely to happen unless or until the majority of the the populace wants it.

It's human nature to "do better than, be better than" your neighbor or friend. It'd be nice if that utopia actually existed, it just isn't reality.

It's why socialism/communism never work, they go against human nature and the powers that try to set it up always, ALWAYS want to live high on the hog once they get a taste.
