the price of "the good life"

Was there ever a generation that did not have its dreamers -- the people yearning for some better and possibly simpler and more straightforward lifestyle?

Well, I have my doubts that anyone can learn anything from someone else, but this BBC story gives first-person appreciations of those who set out to live a simpler and self-sustaining lifestyle -- "the good life" -- in the 1970's. It's not quite as good as I'd hoped, but there are whispers of the kind of learning anyone faces where the rubber hits the road.
