Ecological Owenism

The early nineteenth century socialists tinkered with new forms of organization as they grappled with the industrial age.

Here is something along the lines of my thinking lately. Put this in Labrador or some arctic archipeligo, and we have one of the possible futures of humanity.

By our analysis, most of the technologies needed for a sustainable and pleasant standard of living could be reduced to the cost of scrap metal + labor. There is immense potential for social transformation once this technology is fully developed for building interconnected self-sufficient communities, since people will be freed from material constraints and able to seek self-actualization.
