Isn't it just miraculous to see what they have achieved. That is standing up - waking up - becoming! It is such a pleasure to have been able to see a nation do such a thing, and can only hope that others follow in their footsteps, of such an awakening. It's in the works anyway. It's happening!

sure, living off the land is a lot more actual hard work than some office job for a wage, but the main difference is that the work you do, and how hard you try, is directly proportional to how much you gain.

Working and bringing home money to live on is the same thing as getting up in the morning, leaving the cave, and killing an antelope to eat for the next couple of days before doing it all again.

great comeback post yeah your rite! maybe i need to just get out of this failed system.
Go to some 3rd world country and help out a little, now that would be interesting. all i
see is clones of people worrying about who has the biggest wide screen TV! this is not
my view of life.
Working for me used to be enjoyable, see i'm good at most things like welding, mechanic
i was even a builder for 6 years iv'e done steel erecting general DIY stuff. if some one needs
there car mending i will do it for a fraction of the cost of a garage. i have worked in these
drive in tire and exhaust replacement places and they are RIP OFF MERCHANTS they really
are! but when you get £7.00 an hour and the boss gets £107 an hour its a bit of a kick in the teeth.
I am over qualified and they wont pay what i am worth! i say i do not care for money but i have to
live in this world with rules that i do not agree with.it's an insult to be payed by some boss who just
basically is exploiting me and taking MY money when I have done all the work!

I would much rather work for myself, hunting/fishing/gardening for my food and making everything that I needed. but the only way that will work is if you have a "village" of sorts where everyone did this. So anyone on here want to start a tribe?edit on 12-2-2011 by ghostsoldier78 because: (no reason given)
Let's do it. We can call it ATS Land. The motto is Denying Establishment. As there will be no institutions, governments, or anything such as. It will be simple like minded people living near each other, but not too close. All in favor, say "I" !
but the system is corrupt and thus broken.
The whole communal life sounds ideal for me.
