“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
The purpose of Autonopedia is to provide practical information to help people build a new model, based on personal and collective autonomy. As E. F. Schumacher pointed out " Small Is Beautiful " and that is the premise that Autonopedia is built upon.
Most of what we require in life can be produced in small communities and locally, with the exception of certain materials and many of these can be recycled from existing items.
