Thanks for sharing that. I've embedded it below.



Here's the description

Jon is a farmer from northeastern Thailand. He founded the Pun Pun Center for Self-reliance, an organic farm outside Chiang Mai, with his wife Peggy Reents in 2003. Pun Pun doubles as a center for sustainable living and seed production, aiming to bring indigenous and rare seeds back into use. It regularly hosts training on simple techniques to live more sustainably. Outside of Pun Pun, Jon is a leader in bringing the natural building movement to Thailand, appearing as a spokesperson on dozens of publications and TV programs for the past 10 years. He continually strives to find easier ways for people to fulfill their basic needs. For more information visit http://www.punpunthailand.org

The only thing i disagree with what was said in the video is that food, shelter, clothing and medicine 'should' be FREE in a civilized society and not just cheep.

I took that as "grow your own"

Life is easy...

I agree with Jon Jandai that it is hard to make things easy, especially since everything seems structured in a way to make things difficult. It's a steep learning curve.

It takes some serious cleverness to make things easy for yourself and be able to succeed in that. Part of the problem is our own lack of knowledge. It could be for a lack of examples, but they the number is getting bigger and bigger every day. Part of the problem is our own laziness. Example: I could ride a bike for 90 percent of my daily life, but I don't because of a million justifications. Part of the problem is the lack of community, which traditionally was leveraged against complexity, and rebuilding those connections in a world where people don't really care to have them rebuilt is, well, difficult - for lack of a better word. The final part of the problem is that we are very impoverished in all the things that could contribute to make our lives easy: quality air-water-food-shelter and social connections.
