Quote from Radical Homemakers by Shannon Hayes

on June 28, 2013


I am reading devouring the book Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture by Shannon Hayes. So I’ll be posting quotes from the book; things that really resonated with me. Hopefully, it will whet your appetite to read the book 🙂 First quote. From page 13: “…our culture has been hostage to a form of organization by domination that fails to honor living systems, where “he who holds the gold makes the rules.” By contrast, Radical Homemakers use life skills and relationships as a replacement for gold, on the premise that he or she who doesn’t need gold can change the rules. The greater our domestic skills, be they to plant a garden,…mend a shirt, repair an appliance,…the less dependent we are on the gold.”  What do you think?  Does that resonate with you?  Comment below 🙂
