Fictional futures are either high- or low-tech. Some people would prefer to live in the latter. Anyone who is good with horses, archery and survival skills might be able to thrive in SM Stirling's Emberverse. To prefer to live in such a future would not be to approve of all the deaths by starvation and violence during the Change.
However, I would prefer to live in Poul Anderson's Technic civilization because:
I appreciate the benefits of civilization and technology;
we would be enriched by living in an interstellar civilization even if we were never among the few who travelled between planetary systems;
although I am not a scientific practitioner, I do want scientific knowledge to continue to increase;
Technic civilization would even provide opportunities to practise styles of living closer to nature, e.g., on Freehold or in secluded areas of Avalon.
