You need only to ask yourself this question: How did the Hawaiians live without it?
The answer is that they widened their comfort zone by becoming acclamated to the natural seasonal weather changes. Becoming dependent on air conditioning narrows people's comfort zone to the point where just a few degrees outside of that narrow range and they're totally miserable.
I live in LA where it gets plenty hot, but I just learned to get used to it. Same with our home. No AC there either. Simply turn on a fan, drink some lemonade, and you're fine.
No power steering? damn that would suck i have to say. Flushing my girls power steering in here honda made the wheels a bitchto move back and forth while parked. I wouldnt want that on a daily for sure. but to each his own.
The old manual steering trick is to have your wheels moving while you turn, even if it's only a few inches, then it's way easier.
It's just a personal preference and everyone is totally free to choose. I came from a time when power steering was an extra option and manual steering was normal.
