Capitalism works best at the small scale. This is important to remember. "Transition movement" is a definition by hippies who failed economics. It's sad, but still a fact of life. The real world is about managing chicken coops, shovelling shit, and dealing with the cost of chicken feed and delivery charges. Few people will accept that the new world order means slower turnaround and reneging on the Rat Race in favor of more reasonable response rates, post oil. That's our future. Law is temporary, and based on enforcement. With no enforcement, law is rather ironic. And that's the world we're moving into, as well. A world with irony and slow turnaround times, and slower shipping. If there's no profit motive in that world, then its all going to fall apart. Lucky for us, capitalism works best at the small scale so profit motive will fix these little things, won't it?

There's no such thing as get rich quick, or easily.

Sadly many people I know still buy into standard infinite profit economics and forget the finite issue.
