Podcast #283: Autonomy Through Agorism (Part 2) – Permaculture Scaled Up and Scaled Down

Jamin, Karen and I discuss how they developed their interest and expertise in Permaculture. We cover how they scaled their operation up from modest beginnings on a small plot of rented land in a densely populated area to the 12+ acre homestead they have today. We also scale down to strategies for a small, affordable first-time garden grown in less-than-optimal conditions. Jamin's Notes: "We are a family of four with one on the way, working to live a lifestyle with more individual autonomy. Following the principals of permaculture and natural law. The desire for more individual autonomy, to opt out of of financing our own enslavement, and to be less dependent on the systems of domination. From the beginning of ...

Podcast #280: Autonomy Through Agorism (Part 1) – Why Permaculture?

Jamin and I discuss how agorism, permaculture and the Philosophy of Liberty work together. Jamin's Notes: Why would somebody want to do this? Your efforts will be rewarded. You will have spent less money and time buying food. Less money will go to commercial farming that is heavily subsidized by stolen productivity. The time you spend will be truly working for yourself with the least amount of contribution to supporting the systems of domination possible. Providing for your own food perpetuates the counter economy by moving productivity out of the realm of the false economy and taxation and into the agora. When paired with barter and alternative currency it exponentially increases it's effectiveness as a revolutionary act. The current systems ...
