I believe this is a wonderful way to allow people to be involved in their lives and livelihood. This is how America flourished in the beginning, welling workers toiling for their futures(before someone got the idea of importing slaves from Africa-no wages needed). This is freedom in the truest sense and it doesn't harm capitalism as many would fear--wealth is not the issue, rather self reliance, self determination and a strengthening of the whole self! Doon bugs, bees, squirrels --all of nature does it cooperatively we must learn to survive together with out fear or greed or selfishness.
Your blog is fantastic, inspiring. And it's giving me a lot of data for my M.A. thesis. :)
