I think self-construction and any kind of help to do something may provide temporary local relief to some people having some problem.

I however think that in general humnakind is still tying itself to outdated and overdue social and economical of the past that our present understanding of our world and ourselves should soon help to a prompt disposal. By the devices of property, money and fanatic indoctrination, people is prevented of putting all the available resources (material and personal) to optimum use.

You may experience it as professionals. You may end not having work for some period where there is magnificent demand for buildings in general and homes in particular. What there is in between such demand and all kind of offers, material and personal, is just a social structures solidified in education, culture, custom and law that vying for the more closer replica to itself than it can in the future.

I think that the vast human population and its previsible (and forecasted) further development and respect for the environment require the disposal of such outmoded ways of social organization, and devise one that being able to be put in place without ample exercise of the force may lead to more complete use of resources in a more just manner and for the benefit of more.

Whilst saying this, I also warn about the present common practice of using the excuse of solidarity to set up private and profitable concerns feeding -in violation of the laws of sound competence- on the states' vault.
