I do not think that self-sufficiency should be described as « a type of extreme personal autonomy » as it may also be collective. Actually, there is a link to this article from the following paragraph on the Special forces article: « Special forces typically comprise relatively small groups of highly-trained personnel who are armed and supplied with specialized equipment, and operate on principles of self-sufficiency, stealth, speed and close teamwork. » – New York 01:05, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
- I agree, and have changed it. Welcome to Wikipedia! If you see something that you think needs changing, please be bold! Ziggurat 01:23, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
Characterizing Thailand's self-sufficient economy as autarky seems a bit off. The idea, as I understand it, is a philosophy promoted by the King to reduce excessive consumption, avoid debt, and live within bounds defined by the carrying capacity of natural eco-systems.
In the UK
In Britain "Self sufficiency" means growing your own food. There was a book of this title by John Seymour (I think) in the 1970s which popularised it. There was a long-running tv comedy where the protagonists grew their own food in the garden of their suburban house, but were not otherwise cut off. It has recently been shown on tv again. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
