"Western Society is in confusion, the industrial world is teetering on collapse, and it looks like things could get worse. Living an off off-grid life is achievable. It has been done for thousands of years, and it can be done today."
This may be a very radical or foreign concept for you, as it is for the majority of western civilization, but I encourage you to get a copy of this book and challenge your thinking.
From the Sifford Journal:
""Do you consider yourself a preparedness person? You need to read this book. Has your financial situation only become worse over time, and are you in debt? You need to read this book. Have you had grandparents or great-grandparents that talked of a different time around the farm? Do you try to eat organic foods and stay away from processed foods? Do you see the world around you as just how things are, and haven't considered it may not be the best for you and your family? You need to read this book..."
