About the Book

Keep your systems simple and your communities small;  

Learn science and engineering, but don't depend on them;  

Keep weapons, but keep them hidden.  

Sail and ride, but not too far;  

Teach art and mathematics,  

And study history so you don't repeat it.  

Grow your own food and make your own clothes;  

Build snug dwellings and share your festivals;  

Dwell within cock-crow of your neighbors,  

But don't interfere with them.
