I don't know whether you shared your approach already but ancient

There were many projects during the history of capitalism which went
back to ancient technologies. One example which comes to mind are
called Landkommune in German. I think in the US this is resembled by
those hippie communities which moved to the countryside.
I think every approach which repeats important parts of these attempts
- like using ancient technology and self-subsistence - needs to
carefully research why these earlier approaches failed.
We once had a thread about these topics. Try

PS: I'll try to not sign my posts for the moment to stop these
somewhat annoying PGP signatures in plain text. Please forgive me
if I forget about it because this is part of my muscle memory when
sending a mail.
