What is the Back-to-the-land Movement?

In this modern world, you may have less chance to hear about the term “back-to-the-land  movement”. In fact, back-to-the-land movement once was a social movement focusing on the idea of providing a self sustaining life that stick to the nature. It was featured by the belief that everyday life is methodically practiced and based on a set of moral values or choices. For a numerous amount of people, homesteading became a spiritual practice, giving meaning to daily life through adhering to values of simplicity and anti-consumerism.

  • How to construct a house and make a home
  • What kind of energy should be used
  • How to subsist – this includes the decision whether to grow your own food or to buy some, where to purchase what you need to buy.
  • Livelihood – whether working at home or in the outside world, how to reconcile the desire to abandon consumerism but still make a good living.

Back-to-the-land members chose to be at nature’s mercy and live with the inconvenient by their will. By using solar or wind power and other environmentally benign forms of energy, for example, they were trading convenience for a life that fit their moral values. The trade-offs were self-sufficiency, simplicity, freedom and others that cannot be enumerated.
