What a strange thing for you, of all people, to say. Your ideal world is one in the Neolithic Era, or perhaps the Bronze Age at the latest, in which there is no modern technology for producing and distributing food, so everyone is responsible for his own little farm in order to feed himself and his family. Farming was a 100-hour-per-week occupation even in the 19th century, when a few modern mechanical tools became available. That's six 15-hour days with 10 hours on Sunday leaving enough time for church. Work was the meaning of life for these people. The people who live in your pre-technological paradise don't have time to go on vacation. Their work is their life. You're describing the Pre-Industrial Era. Everyone had to be a farmer, or at least work in the food distribution industry, because the pre-industrial food production technology did not produce a very large surplus. Only a few people, maybe 5% of the population at most (depending on the specific century) could do other kinds of work. These people were indeed working all day and night, with just enough time to cook, eat, sleep and take care of the children--who went out in the fields to help as soon as they could walk. This is the world YOU want. It kills you both physically and emotionally.
