Resilient Communities

I’m going to use the next few posts to organise some materials concerning potential Resilient Communities, that may be submitted to and discussed by the Network of European Technocrats (more personable and user-friendly than the name might suggest!)

Some Right Libertarians think discussions of Self-Sufficiency, Transistion Towns, and possibly even Resilient Communities are equivalent to supporting Autarky – total economic isolation. This is a straw man argument: supporting individual liberty does not negate community life, nor planning responsibly for such (if we can have volunteer Fire Fighters and Civil Defence, why not plan for the scenarios of resource wars, peak oil, or economic depression – not so far fetched, are they?) This also demonstrates an unfortunate – but all too human – knee jerk reaction against political opponents’ ideas, even if at core they may not be so bad.
