Relocalization etc.

Relocalization aspires to regain balance with the natural environment and to form communities where each person is recognized and has a place. Human development has been stunted by the hyper-individualism induced by growth economics, a world view driving our politics and casting us as manipulated economic units. Relocalization was called decentralization by E. F. Schumacher in "Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered" (1973). He said that largeness and some forms of centralized control -- in business and government -- lead to an arrogance where nobody is at home, where there's no human warmth: a Wizard of Oz absenteeism. Schumacher called for a revaluation of the local to allow warmth, creativity, intimacy and trust to thrive.

Like the Locavore movement.

In the mean time there are some candidates running for office who want more "hyper-individualism induced by growth economics".

Vote your conscience.
