Becoming intentional peasants
Practicing frugality
Living self-sufficiently
People wishing to avoid urban lifestyles or economic failure and poverty in cities are retreating to the countryside to become intentional peasants or homesteaders. Established natural resources and do-it-yourself techniques are employed to provide basic food, construction, repairs, energy, products such as soap and fibre, and social needs and services, such as health, education and entertainment. Small communities spring up where people support themselves and work together on community projects, thereby eliminating the need for taxes.
Until the tenets of pastoral economics are again recognized as integral to a sustainable society, and are reintroduced into mainstream economics... only the practicing husbandman will know his place in the universe.
