70 years old man and his son splitting stone (granite) for our new workshop foundations. They are the last know stone splitters in our region.
People should support their local economy and local community. They can do this by gathering local natural building materials (such as stone, clay, wood, lime, sand). They can do this by hiring local craftsmen (meaning supporting their families) to split the rocks, carpenters to build the log walls and roofers to put the slate or shingle roof on. They should do this instead of buying imported man made building materials in a store, paying unknown corporations and companies and hiring expensive construction company workers to put all this crap together.
That is why we have crisis in our economy, because we have a crisis in our narrow minded minds and we have become blind to see what our ancestors saw, what they built and how they lived… That is why our countryside is dying and the craftsmen along with it, because we support corporations and their brain washing machine when we should be supporting each other.
