Back to the Home is not a pining for the past, a going-back, a retreat from the world, or an over-simplified romanticizing of the “good old days.” Neither is it an outright rejection of the many benefits of modernity — quite the contrary. Modern technology and access to knowledge make going back to the home more exciting and promising than ever before. But true progress in any matter depends first upon knowing which way is up.
And upon considering the values and metrics that truly matter, it’s not hard to see that the way forward is back…back to the home. And that going back to the home is not a retreat from the world at all, but a re-centering of our lives on what just might save it.
