: Strange to say, there are people who extol this deadening method of centralized production as the proudest achievement of our age. They fail utterly to realize that if we are to continue in machine subserviency, our slavery is more complete than was our bondage to the King. They do not want to know that centralization is not only the death-knell of liberty, but also of health and beauty, of art and science, all these being impossible in a clock-like, mechanical atmosphere.

Without centralized industrial activity, there will be only the scarcity and poverty of precapitalist peasant proprietorship. What your one-paragraph utopia promises is the return to artisan natural economy that won't be easily conveyed by computers (centralized industrial product).

Tell us all about your 'anarchist' utopia by homing pigeon, smart guy.
