The point is not to go back to the days of self-sustainable living back in the 1800s. The whole idea is to PROGRESS, not REGRESS. You can still have your precious video games, mind-numbing tv, health care, etc. But ideally you'd have it freely, without having to sell your life to afford month-to-month living off the work of others. Communities would feed themselves. Fair trade would occur, but only between communities that can't produce the resources. A new, evolved world. Not the dark ages.

I'm sorry, but that's bull. On top of that, you're not understanding properly. Your'e so brainwashed by your concrete jungle world that you don't realize how the world actually works. If everyone lived sustainably, there would indeed be enough resources for everyone. How on Earth do you think you get your current fruits and vegetables? Picked from magical resource land? The reason it takes mass producing is because so few people actually do it, not because of population.

That being said, I prefer to live a more Earth- and health-conscious lifestyle, and plan to someday live "off-grid".

I basically agree. Thing is, if every person on the planet lived the same way, sustainably or not, it wouldn't work bcause of overpopulation. Earth can handle many ppl living a certain way, but now we have to find balance somehow. There's no one right way to live bcause of all the variables created by different climates, geography, ecosystems. It seems that, here in the U.S. at least, laws and being made to pay taxes holds us back from solving many issues including food and housing shortage.

Have you ever heard of The Farm? In 1970 1,500 hippies and their guru founded a commune in Tennessee where they grew their own food, delivered their babies at home and built a self-sufficient society similar to this one. Check out our trailer on our YouTube page!

I know all about them, they are a product of modern technology and are not considered "organic" or "natural" by the people i was criticizing. Also you can't really use hydroponics or aquaponics in a completely self sufficient society. Efficient hydro/aquaponics systems are pretty high tech and dependent on complicated electrical components and fertilizer. If you remove those you are sort of back on square one.

It's somewhat inefficient yes. Mostly because of government enforced trade barriers and other internal trade obstacles. I it were up to me a lot of things would be different but my point was that modern society is still way better than it was before and that going back to a self sufficient society would not be possible at todays populations rate.
