Iv come to realize that it is easy to know everything. Everything they want you to know. Nothing less and certainly nothing more.
You work 8 hours, or slave (I prefer slave), and have that much less time to do what you want, so it is easy to take the spoon feeding from the media. You have 8 hours less of your day to obtain real knowledge.
These people can have this world, I want nothing to do with it. But at the same time I can't turn my back on them. No matter how frustrated I get when I hear "anyways, my..." after I tell some truth about anything. We all opted to be here at this point in time right?

Am I wrong in assuming that you want to do away with working (or slaving as you call it?)

If so, how would you gain all of this knowledge you seek without a roof over your head, or electricity?

Not too much knowledge could be obtained while you are starving to death either.

I'm a little confused. Precisely what is your point? Often within these type of threads you find undertones of the OP masking their own prejudices against the generalised populus, those both actively reading and aware of the issues on the planet and those perceived not to.

I'm not suggesting for a moment that you, OP, have hidden prejudices here but what I am saying there are all too often these common phrases used in here that I think in itself is a little ingnorant.

Am I a slave because I work?

I'm a professional, enjoy my work alot, live a fullfilled life and family life, yet I am apparently a ''slave'' to a system because that somehow prohibits me from discovering the truth?

Please elaborate OP.

PEACE

I am a hippy at heart. I salute you old, wise hippy! I have spent my life in the system. I believed the BS hook, line and sinker. George Bush saved me. He made me see that all that I believed was garbage, fed to me by the Ministry of Truth. (I love Orwell) I am with you. THAT is the way one should live. When you have all that time on your hands, actually on your hands and not beneath someone else, one can be creative. Art, isn't that what matters? Isn't that what lasts? Who will remember the Banker, the financeer the polititian? It is Art that lasts. It is full of intent from it's creator. It is full of Love. Keep up your Art my freind and someday, someone will give you an entire Universe as a canvas.

Peace & Love to you, dear reader.

Most "hippies" barely make ends meet at the lower end of the payscale.

Thats not exactly something to brag about .

Most people who say money is the root of all evil are those who dont have any money.

Just sayin....

The point is that if you live in America you are still part of the system, having access to the junk of everyday American life doesn't make you poor or self sufficient, your broke and industrious. If most of the people in the third world had access to the American system they would build themselves out of poverty. Real poor, REAL off the grid means separating yourself from the system and stop feeding off the corpses of the very system you condemn.

Real poor don't even have access to the quality of the junk that litters the street, backyards, and trash heaps. There might only be a dozen cars in a village of thousands, those dozen might be working or not but that is all they have, no parts store down the street, no junkyard to rummage through, no machine shop within days.

I looked about moving my family deep into the jungle of central America and off the grid has a totally new meaning when there is no AutoZone, Home depot, walmart..... Let alone no roads to the property!

HOW THE HELL DO YOU SAY YOUR SELF SUFFICIENT AGAINST THE SYSTM AND A SOCIALIST!?!?!? Socialism is the anti-thesis of being off the grid and out of the system, SOCIALISM IS SLAVERY. YOU ARE A SLAVER!

Don't pay your taxes the government comes with guns and kidnaps you from your house, displaces your family, steals your property, and imprisons you in captivity. Love you hypocritical hippie wannabes preaching against the system, then in the same sentence proportionally for more government, more reliance, more slavery.

Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom.

DCDAVECLARKE,

I thought a response to my entry above would have been the least of the courteous things you could have done, but maybe I'm wrong? I only asked you to elaborate?

I didn't challenge you in any way. I asked you to clarify your point and elaborate. Now, scolling down the thread all I gather is that you get annoyed with people for questioning your way of life. Care to offer anything more about that, because for all of your undoutbed ability to sell paintings and artwork you certainly don't paint a good initial portait of yourself through this website. But I could be wrong again.

PEACE

Pray tell what do you expect from such an attack on mine and many other's way of life?
