d of the Free, Sustainable Living is a Crime

Quote:
In order for the State to make people believe that “democratic” centralized government is necessary for a functioning society, it must work to keep the people from gaining too much freedom and self-sufficiency.

But technology and information sharing are allowing people, like never before, to break from entrenched power interests that control our money, our economy, our energy, our food, our property – and thus our lives.

For decades the State has partnered with corporate giants – such as the fossil fuel and biotech industries – to maintain the façade of freedom and choice, all the while fleecing the masses. Meanwhile, government employs overt means such as “ordinances” to maintain dependence and thwart the sustainable lifestyle.

As we reported in Nov. 2016, towns and cities across the U.S. are banning tiny homes or severely limiting one of the main reasons for their existence – self-sufficiency. Where tiny homes are allowed, they often must be affixed to the ground in a government-approved fashion and are required to connect to the utility grid.



So, even if someone can power their tiny home with solar energy, they must be ‘connected’ and pay the utility company and government taxes. The State and its corporate partners certainly see the slippery slope to freedom that the masses can gain by harnessing free, clean energy from their rooftop and water from the sky.

Several U.S. states either prohibit rainwater collection or have very strict laws regarding such. While there is a legitimate concern in arid regions about preserving natural streams, does residential rainwater collection (i.e. a 1,000 gallon cistern) actually have any effect on stream water levels? Governments immediately jump to restricting the public’s ability to live self-sufficiently, without providing actual data to justify their actions.

Solar panels are a bigger target for establishment forces that can only thrive if the masses conform to a centralized grid. States such as Indiana and Nevada are passing bills that are designed to cripple the fast-growing solar industry, while keeping in place the same old favors for fossil fuel interests. Solar energy technology is improving at light speed (pun intended) and prices are crashing due to market forces, meaning that rooftop solar – and self-sufficiency – threatens to upend the long dominance of fossil fuels.

Vegetable gardening is not even immune from State interference. In Miami Shores, a couple was forced to destroy their front yard vegetable garden after government threatened them with a fine of $50 each day it remained.

“When our garden was in full production, we had no need to shop for produce. At least 80 percent of our meals were harvested fresh from our garden,” said Hermine Ricketts. “This law crushes our freedom to grow our own healthy food. No one should have to expend time and energy dealing with such nonsense.”

In any reality but the American police state, a front yard vegetable/herb garden would draw respect and admiration. In the corporatocracy, though, buying food produced in centralized factories is preferred.

‘Death by a thousand cuts’ could sum up the strategy of the State to derail the movement toward freedom and self-sufficiency. Everything essential to living is subject to rules and regulations which seems to have a natural tendency toward ever greater restriction.

When I look at the crime map the entire area surrounding Brown Township is infested with crime but no crime here. Brown Township does not have a police department because we all pack. A few years ago the Hell's Angels moved in but did not stay long when the Brown Township Trustees got on them.

I live in a single story brick ranch house of average size and is a tiny house compared to the mansions that doctors and executives live in. I get cabin fever from time to time. One rich guy is building a McMansion and is covering his roof with solar cells. I wonder how that will work out at 40 N. Latitude. One rich guy had a wind turbine built but he lives at the lowest point and rarely if ever see the blades turning.

A "town" such as you describe is wealthy and has no need of a police department. You most likely have private security and most homes have an alarm system and the country Sheriff's Dept . will respond to calls from the alarm company if the alarm company does not have it's own people.
No, it's NOT that you people "all pack." In addition to the alarm systems and private security you allows no convince stores,liquor stores, or other quick and easy marks for the impulsive armed or strong arm robbers. I've mentioned the private security and home alarms. As a result their are few easy marks there.

Really now? Anyone that cannot afford to build on a $200,000.00 lot is 'riff-raff?" Good on you, best to keep out the dirty smelly peasants, huh?
Thanks from RNG
