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.
