Society has grossly overlooked the psychological, health, environmental, and societal advantages of a nudist lifestyle

The advantages of a naturist lifestyle:
Nudist lifestyle - While many in America desperately seek options for the essential issues resulting from today's superficial, materialistic, unsustainable, environmentally destructive, socially isolated, emotionally disconnected, mentally trying, and physically sedentary consumer lifestyles, no reference is made by mainstream society of one significant lifestyle aspect of many longstanding sustainable societies and indigenous peoples in less industrialized regions around the world (and historically by native individuals within our own region), namely that of naturism.
Advantages of a nudist lifestyle
While naturists in the developed world have for ages been conscious of the psychological, health, environmental, and societal advantages of spending private, family, and social time clothes free, we now have been largely quiet in sharing this advice with mainstream society. The benefits of naturism or naturism aren't even mentioned on popular environmental and sustainable design websites like Treehugger, or Inhabitat. Well-Being sites including WebMD yield zero results for naturism. The present discussion of sustainable social engineering and resource based market as promulgated by The Zeitgeist Movement also makes no reference of naturism. Even social movements which should clearly encompass naturism, such as the promotion of holistic, sustainable, lifestyle practices is mostly divorced from, and uninformed of, naturism. Naturism remains a stepchild, isolated, concealed, shunned, and mainly ignored by more popular holistic health and wellness, community participation, and environmental sustainability movements.
We naturists cannot remain silent if we wish to pass on the advantages of naturism to larger society, keep them for future generations, as well as keep them for ourselves. Naturism is under attack. It is an attack of words, largely uninformed words and knee jerk rhetorical questions based in anxiety and fantasy, sometimes inflamed by the misbehavior of a few disrespectful, socially irresponsible people. We're under an attack of words, ordinances, laws, policy revisions, outside political subversion, internal organizational discord, media ridicule, and marketing distortions. We must win this war of words with our own authentic stories, our personal experiences, the advantages we've received, the social harmony we've detected, and the respectful personal accountability and social responsibility we have practiced. We must actively engage the movements which have yet to mention us in meaningful discussion of the values and benefits related to the practice of naturism.

Like an unloved stepchild, we have been seen (commonly with misunderstanding, fear, and contempt) and not heard. to return out of the closet, grab the microphone, and make our voices heard! We must do this, for our own good, but for the healing of our larger society which only becomes possible when truly more comprehensive and more inclusive holistic sustainable lifestyle choices and public policy choices are brought to the table.
