Now, there's certainly a few good ideas in there, but the overwhelming read most people (including myself) seem to be getting is that Rhinehart is both batshit insane (I mean more so than just being the co-founder of Soylent already implied) and has his head so far up his ass that it comes out his neck again.
Kitchens are expensive and dirty. This home manufacturing center has been by far the most liberating to eliminate. They are the greediest consumers of power, water, and labor and produce the most noise and garbage of any room. Moreover, they can be made totally unnecessary with a few practical life hacks.
First, I never cook. I am all for self reliance but repeating the same labor over and over for the sake of existence is the realm of robots.
Remember kids: Cooking with real food makes you a robot, but consuming homogeneous cans of nutrient slurry is really living.
I think it was a bit presumptuous for the architect to assume I wanted a kitchen with my apartment and make me pay for it. My home is a place of peace. I don’t want to live with red-hot heating elements and razor-sharp knives. That sounds like a torture chamber.
How dare they? How DARE they?!
I have not done laundry in years. I get my clothing custom made in China for prices you would not believe and have new ones regularly shipped to me. Shipping is a problem. I wish container ships had nuclear engines but it’s still much more efficient and convenient than retail. Thanks to synthetic fabrics it takes less water to make my clothes than it would to wash them, and I donate my used garments, helping out those in need.
