I know that libertarians want freedom and liberty and liberals want stuff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nj9e3JLGkA . Ha ha ha just kidding. But seriously though, they want stuff like equality and peace. You know hippy dippy Jesus bullshit, lol. Well the funny thing is to get these things requires the same techniques and principals to be implemented. If you truly want liberty, if you truly want freedom, if you truly like the things Jesus preached we have to work together on this but it can be achieved. Using the proper techniques, principals, and technologies that apply to autonomous building and agriculture we can have all these things and much more. What if we had an america that produced goods at home? What if we hand real communities where people actually knew and interacted with others. What if all people had access to healthy food and durable goods? I know it sounds great doesn't it? Libertarians would be happy cause an apocalypse could come and they would still be secure in food, water, and shelter. Liberals will be happy cause psychopathic killers won't be slaughtering children cause they will have someone to talk to. 3rd world nations would be able to feed, clothe, and house their people and that would make the sky daddy very pleased.

Many can not even reproduce in a natural setting. turkeys, cows, and many gmo crops are designed to not be fertile. In addition there are many non traditional livestock such as rabbit and quail that can produce a generous output and be raised ethically in a small area including fish http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquaponics to. We can do this. http://www.appropedia.org/Original:Micro-livestock:_Little-known_Small_Animals_with_a_Promising_Economic_Future many of these can be used as green alternatives for livestock feed, to assist in composting, and alternative human consumption.
