Are you saying it's a Marxist thing? "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"? If you're not doing any economically productive labour (i.e. you're not making anything anyone wants to buy) then how do you pay for seedcorn, machines, fuel, medical care, etc? Because it seems to me that you want people to give you money. I can't see that starting up a small-holding is something that is worth people donating for. Why wouldn't I give my money to a real charity that helps people in need?
