Three Acres and a Cow

A short phrase with a clear message: let each citizen possess the means to their own prosperity. Allow the local community to be the primary center of production. Sustainability centered on your own plot of land on which to produce an over abundance of high-quality and nutrient-dense produce and products for oneself and the marketplace. Let wealth remain within a town as neighbor enriches neighbor through mutually beneficial buying and selling. The individual working and living in town knows what he and his neighbor needs most. Simply provide the means of production to allow him to support his family and local community. His best chance for sustainable living begins simply enough: with three acres and a cow.
