So maybe rethink your whole attitude and maybe others including myself will find our time here at ats is more enjoyable.

Hi colopatiron and welcome to ATS. Great first post! I have to agree so much is available just for the taking. i live in the city but I keep a small garden and eat weeds from my yard. I get hazlenuts, pawapaws and persimmons from my trees and every once in a while I get a taste for squirrel with gravy. Bad! bad! what can I say? I like meat.
Now if I could just replace my pain medications with something natural. Any tips?
oneclickaway - There are farmers, ranchers, and landowners that would GLADLY accept a barter with someone. Free Labor for Room & Board. Help them work their farm/livestock/land and many will give you a small section of land. All the trees you want to cut down. Help them grow food and they will give you some for free. Help them tend to their herds and they will provide you with free meat.

I agree 100% with the OP.
To cut the OP's long story short, people need to REALISE they can take care of themselves and that they have EVERY RIGHT to do so.

Well, that is one place in America. The OP was talking about everyone. Everyone does not live in America. Everyone does not live in a small town in Texas. Everyone is not fit, young and healthy enough to be doing farm labouring, in fact I don't think the OP mentioned anything much about hard labour, just that food was free, shelter was free, wealth was easy, food can be grown by all and that free food can be found everywhere.
Everyone does not have the money for tools and equipment to grow food, or the skills to erect shelters, even if allowed.
There are whole countries where you can hardly even go for a walk as you would be illegally on someone's land, let alone buy land. And even if you had enough money to buy land, you would not be allowed to erect a single thing on that land without permission of the authorities. If you then erected a wooden hut that did not match up to expectations it would be razed to the ground and you would be charged lots of money for the joy of watching them do this; not that you would have got permission in the first place.
Good to hear this is all possible in America, although none of this would be remotely possible in cities.
However, maybe the OP needs to change this to the specifics of which countries this would be even remotely possible in, which small tracts of land this would be possible on...and how any of this could be achieved without money having to be used, if everything is free.
And as not everyone lives in a place that would allow any of what the OP claims to be true, then one would need a lot of money to be able to relocate to somewhere one could do this. That is without working out how to relocate to a country that one would not be allowed entry into.
