Upon a foundation of not being able to change the world, the Nyerges have changed themselves along the lines, that is, of Tolstoy's observation that everybody thinks of changing humanity, and nobody thinks of changing himself.

Overview

Upon a foundation of not being able to change the world, the Nyerges have changed themselves along the lines, that is, of Tolstoy's observation that everybody thinks of changing humanity, and nobody thinks of changing himself. They provide simple, natural, and cheap ways to live in the city, partly as survivalists, partly as environmentalists, by recounting the tale of their newly-acquired dilapidated duplex in LA. Their first step was removing the energy-wasting dishwashers, disposals, and central heating units and gradually beginning beekeeping, rainwater collecting, and organic/natural gardening.
