Agorism is a social philosophy that advocates creating a society in which all relations between people are voluntary exchanges by means of counter-economics, engaging with aspects of peaceful revolution.
Agorism – Wikipedia

Such practice includes buying goods from farmers markets and community farms, rooftop gardening, personal and community use of solar power and aquaponic systems, community toolshares and skillshares, homesteading, urban farming, community protection networks, and free schools”

Definitely the way to go in the future, at least for me personally… Hoarding cryptocurrency to buy stuff isn’t particularly appealing but building your own stuff is always a fun and rewarding experience!

        I watched your “highly recommended” show-note link,, Underwhelming self-absorbed and not in the finest spirit of “off grid”. Those people had serious money to play with. Those people were not innovating anything. The notion of “off grid” implies self reliance, that often comes with hard knocks and mother of necessities, innovation, as a mentor. the tech and specific environmental impact of the materials they or somebody bought was at the highest level of naughty (from the point of view of the environment).

If were looking for good examples to share here, I’d give that one a thumbs down. I suppose what I’m wanting people to see, happens as life events that wont ever be captured by film makers, because they can never be staged.

The globaloneyists are right about our need to reduce our use of materials. they’re wrong that they have the right to bludgeon to achieve that end. in the shadows of their haunted nightmare they’re self-serving demonic bastards, most are likely riddled with jealousy, barely staved off by supreme denial about everything except the next big fish they’ll have to eat or be eaten by.

At the root of it, they’re scared to death to feel anything. or be self reliant at all: extreme viral symptoms. the balance will not be feather light when their time comes. I’m not wanting people to struggle, and but I have been advocating that people build their own homes for decades, all the while building homes for others,, (is that cognitive dissonance?).

I guess this comment is to say: self reliance is a hard master, and speaking from some direct experience, well worth the candle. Log in to Reply

I appreciate your honesty. It is nice to have counter-opinions and a “thumbs down” to help balance perspectives, especially since you have some direct experience. Just so folks are aware, Urban Farmer Curtis Stone is working on a complete off-the-grid place.
He is fortunate, because he has years of experience with farming. Log in to Reply

  1. Great ideal but greatly limited. What do you have to exchange for those solar panels or denim? Squashes? Money, by the way, is essentially an IOU for your time and labor or mine. And it allows us to trade those over great distances.
