    Precisely. There are very few ways left for us to win back some of our lost freedoms - but this is one of them. No doubt that if this became a nationwide thing, the government would find a way to tax self-sufficiency. It's just too dangerous for them to let this kind of thing go unchecked. But as long as there are only a minority of isolated communities of this sort, those admirable people will have scraped back a little of the golden age.

    We have the luxury of "playing" at this kind of farming, then we can drive a few miles to the big store when there's something we need which we cannot grow as part of a small commune.

    That kind of rural existence from decades ago is way over-romanticised IMHO, life was hard.

    major oil companies are earning a relatively modest 8.7 percent profit margin -- the portion of the sale of each barrel that hits the bottom line. Major banks and drug makers, for example, enjoy profits margins that are twice as big.

    I have just been thinking about closed communities in America that live off their own land. There are several within the states are so independant the government tries to stay out of their way. It's only when they start taking part human rights violations that the law comes down hard on them but otherwise they typically can do as they please so long as peace is kept.

    I am pleased that they are maintaining the profit motive for producing their own products. This is what distinguishes nationalist co-operatives from socialist co-operatives, and it allows such ventures to integrate with and augment a capitalist economy.

    Socialist co-operative experiments in the 60s and 70s failed so many times because profit was not seen a legitimate motive.

    I do not see what OEN is saying about economies of scale, because this is precisely what the villagers have used, by coming together to sell their produce.

    I think it is fabulous. They are probably undercutting the supermarkets as well as making a profit.

    Although I shortly move to Chalk Farm, a distinctly un-rural part of London, with a rural-sounding name, I will be growing my own wheatgrass in a rack there, and one day I hope to keep dairy goats.

    Why in hell's name would you want to move from Aberdeen to Chalk Farm, London? Must be a REALLY amazing job, or a REALLY amazing girl. Any other answer I won't accept

    No, I hate her really. She has been scouting for a flat for me and we have found one and she will probably end up living there with me, before we fall out for the fourth time.

    I have to move to within walking distance of the best yoga centre in the UK, Triyoga, for my own learning. There is a centre in Soho, and one in Chalk Farm and Chalk Farm is a lovelier place to live. I like the architecture around Regent's Park, my favourite period, and Camden, where I was born, is just down the road.

    Aberdeen has also become a little old, and I have problems keeping away from the white nose-powder stuff here, because there is very little else for me to do here, and I cannot say no to the company. Cereally!

    There's a bit more to it than that, such as the common socialist/communist "bee-in-the-bonnet" about supermarkets, together with the "communal" thing. Besides, from what I've heard of previously, this sort of thing does tend to be organised by socialists.

    Superficially it just sounds like a socialist experiment; I haven't looked into it far and it may not be what it looks like, and I don't really care whether it is or not, either

    As for growing your own veggies, yeah, good idea, they taste better home grown

    I'm just joking mate. I'm sure you have good reasons. I live just outside London and spend a lot of time in London, particularly round the Camden area for gigs. It's a less offensive area of London, but honestly, I'm sure you'll find just as much of the white-stuff there. Most of my friends are on it - it seems to be the new cannabis, very widespread and acceptable. I hope you manage to stay clear of it though. Your body is your temple.
