A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
-Robert A. Heinlein
An effective economic system doesn't just barely allow one person to succeed while shutting down almost everyone else.
I would like to share some of my findings on some of the challenges that might be stalling development especially in local small holder farmers in my area and small changes we can work on gradually. These include
• unplanned activities
• Lack of “self” belief and the ability to see things differently from the way they are
• The inability to assess the overall gain or loss of an activity which is not a direct transfer of money for a service.
I have attached a pdf with more detail(it is still work in progress, but I like what I am discovering).

I'm glad you asked that, Chris. As it's an opportunity for clarification.
I am not personally opposed to the government. I'm not in rebellion against it. I just don't need it like most people do. I don't need government to indemnify me against every possible contingency known to man. I don't need it to educate me. I don't need its loans grants benefits or subsidies. I don't need it to take care of my health for me.
All of these things I do for myself because I'm an American and that's what Americans do. : )
