A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity is a free feature-length documentary that follows a community in Australia who came together to explore and demonstrate a simpler way to live in response to global crises. Throughout the year the group build tiny houses, plant veggie gardens, practice simple living, and discover the challenges of living in community. This film is the product of hours and hours of footage that I shot during that year-long experiment in simple living. The documentary includes interviews with David Holmgren, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Nicole Foss, Ted Trainer, Graham Turner, and more.

What do they do for work?

Andrew Cheshire says:

56-57 minute mark says it all. Most of us are enslaved by the banking system which is completely rigged in their favour. I wish this video had emphasised that point more.

I wish it were as simple and easy to get out as the old guy said, but you need land, and land is very expensive, and then there are taxes to pay on that land, so you need to make money somehow for it to be sustainable from a financial point of view. Don't think the government will leave you alone to do as you want on that land you bought either. How many restrictions are there?!!! There is no escaping the hell of Government intervention. This video doesn't address that cold reality.

As much as I like your message, a woman in it criticizes capitalism as system that extracts resources from the periphery and concentrates them in the center. That's a better description of communism. In capitalism, the people on the periphery buy excess from each other and the money goes around the center. Why do back to nature types always flunk economics?

Love this ❤️ so good to see this happening in Victoria

One of the most important changes anyone wishing to make a difference is to go vegan, it significantly reduces your "carbon footprint" there's less water consumption, less fertilizer, less pesticide, less transport, less cruelty, less have health problems and less bad karma. It sets your position to one of "no harm" seriously fixing this in your mind affects all areas of your life and has a ripple effect into the wider world. We have to stop accepting unnecessary cruelty at the expense of our and the planets health for the sake of flavour and convenience. Please look into it.
