Annotation

Outlines of an anarchist eutopia in which everyone respects everyone else’s freedom and individuality. The pamphlet identifies the most fundamental social problem as the dominance of money. The solution is that every individual should produce their own food on one-third of an acre of land, thus implying vegetarianism, and also producing for each other’s needs. Although there is no money, there is a medium of exchange which is said to simply be account books where resources, labor, and exchange of goods are recorded. People keep the resources they hold on entering the group, although this will gradually disappear over time. Each person or family would have their own housing depending on their needs.
