An excellent use of 8 minutes of your time --

"He's not an anarchist... What he hates is working from 9 to 5 for someone
else and being a slave to paying bills"
Sounds damn anarchic to me! Think what would happen if everyone did that.. the
state would collapse! They're an excellent example of "simplicity" though.
If you really want a good read on 'urban homesteading' then, if you can get a
copy, read "Extreme Simplicity: Homesteading in the City" by Christopher and
Dolores Nyerges. They outline how their whole lifestyle operates, and how it
ties into the urban economy.
"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government,
nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are
for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom,
that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness,
righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with
God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
(Edward Burrough, 1659 - from 'Quaker Faith and Practice')
Paul's book, "Energy Beyond Oil", is out now!
