Essays about simple lifestyles

Hut life

My communalist community ideas

These essays are about setting up simple lifestyle based on solid common-sense rather than on comfort. They range over a variety of related topics, covering such matters as whether the Vikings had the technical ability to construct a hydro-electric power plant, how voluntary simplicity relates to actual poverty, and the advantages of re-introducing the stocks.

Simplicity is not a lifestyle in itself; it can be part of a variety of ways of living. It was promoted not only by St Francis of Assisi, but also by his contemporary, Genghis Khan!
