I’m writing a article about urban homesteading for NLDM, and am doing a lot of reading on the subject. In searching for stuff about urban homesteading, of course, I’m weeding through a lot of traditional (rural) homesteading information. And then I came across this site.
This site is aimed at helping new homesteaders get started. How to get rid of your mortgage and job so you can homestead. Step one, get some sort of small housing that you can pay cash for. Step two, quit your jobs. Step three, get on government assistance.
What? That is not self-sufficiency, that is relying on your neighbors to pay your expenses so you can pursue your dreams. Geez.
