How the hell do we get to self-sufficiency from here?
Hey you! Yeah, you reading this article. The fact that you’re here suggests that it isn’t your first time around the block. That you are an independent thinker, unhappy with the status quo and/or … concerned… about the direction society is being steered, etc.
But what’s the solution?
What do we do about it? I mean really? How should people be reacting to the current state of affairs? We need your inspiration, knowledge, ideas and direction. We have many ideas, and so far a report on sprouts, two editions of bone soup, juicing and loads of videos discussing avoiding GMOs, food allergens, etc.
Corbett Report: Solutions: Boycotts and Buycotts
In a very thought provoking edition, James Corbett of the Corbett Report.com spoke to us about the GMO labeling deception and solutions to the food dilemma amid a larger discussion about disengaging from the system. Listen to the full interview here.

Via the Corbett Report:
The battle against the New World Order is designed to demoralize us. No matter how we vote, no matter what politician we vote for, no matter what legislation gets passed, no matter what rallies people attend, nothing seems to fundamentally change. If anything, things only seem to be getting worse and worse. So how can we effectively fight back against the powers that shouldn’t be. The answer, it turns out, might be remarkably simple: stop feeding the beast. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we explore the power of the boycott.
At Truthstream Media.com, we’re trying to ask these important questions. What now? What solutions?
The corruption is there; the system is fundamentally working against our interests; we are dynamic but at the societal level, largely dependent people who want to be free. The global, federal, state and even local levels of government have too much power, and work towards the wrong agendas, in corporation with the Wall Street, Fortune100 and Fortune500 crowd. Now what?
We’ve got a few ideas, starting from simple changes and small steps. We’ve heard about – at least in passing – all the promises of Tesla technology, the tenets of self-reliance espoused by Thoreau, the benefits of aquaponics, dome homes, underground homes, victory gardens, organics, off grid and survival living, local & alternative currencies and markets, alternative energy, simplified living, Amish lifestyle, healthy living through nutritional food, vitamins, non-GMO foods, et (ahem, and exercise) and other concerns of the modern rugged individualist. Which of these are workable and can be implemented right away?
What size community? A cog in an anonymous centralized mega-city dependent upon a supply chain, or a town of just a few hundred or so?
And how does the average person living in the city or suburban environment take on this kind of lifestyle? How do they afford it, how can they make the right informed decision and how do they adapt to it from a position of living among the rest of civilization?
Where do we go from here as both individuals and as a society? What common strategies can people in different brackets of income and varying places on the urban/rural scale do? Can it work from an apartment? A cookie cutter home? A couple of acres? A rural farm?
Bottom line: What are you building/working towards? What would you advise your family, neighbors, friends and associates to build work towards? It would be great to see (briefer the better) demonstrations, conceptions or videos of how to model the big package idea in a personal life conception.
We want to know. Constructive ideas. Specifics. Schemata. Designs. Demos.
Assuming that society at least needs protection for the individual freedom enough that one is allowed to live as independently as one wishes. Perhaps larger scale decentralization and disengagement.
Where do we grow from here?
