In the second half of the panel, some of the MennoNerds discuss several practical questions about living simply and sustainably. These include discussions like:

  • Can we learn from Amish and Hutterite communities?
  • Does technology make life simpler or more complicated?
  • What is the community of goods and how does it work?
  • What is it like to sell almost everything you own?
  • How do we avoid this being a pursuit of the comfortable middle class while leaving the poor behind?
  • How do we radicalize the suburbs to move them in this direction?

We hope for there to be follow-up videos from other panelists who unfortunately had to withdraw on short notice, so stay tuned to and our YouTube channel for those.
