It sounds like a sort of "re-wilding" thing, or rather, a bunch of  
people wanting to drop out of modern corporate capitalist society and  
forge a way that is back to our 10,000 years-ago agrarian roots. I  
have a similar plan but it involves my social security check, my  
backpack and the PCT (and possibly a single-wide in the desert) and  
doesn't involve any kooky groups of people trying to build a village.
