Prepare, Sustain, Thrive and Survive Simply
The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living by Estar Holmes was published in e-book format 4/7/2012 on Smashwords.com
Radical simplicity is disdained by the modern masses, but it is a way for people to get their lives under control. From personal crisis to melting ice caps and wars of all kinds, simple living is an overlooked answer to big problems. Since most people fear the idea, the liberty to dwell simply and intentionally on the land is quickly slipping away just when it need it most.
Climate change, peak oil, tight money got you down? Why not try the simple living approach to life? The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living is about me, a city girl, that went to the Northwest woods and learned to live simply without electricity and running water. I survived to explain how my unhooked cohorts and I managed to provide for life’s basic necessities simply and gracefully without much money.
I wrote The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living to preserve the knowledge of how to take care of life’s basic needs without pipes and wires because most people think it’s impossible or horrible to live that way. Actually, it’s just the opposite. People can become remarkably empowered by living very simply, without even electricity and running water, if they know what they’re doing. Intentional simplicity, when done with finesse, can be comfortable and empowering.
With water and power shortages and worse rolling across the land, people might want to learn basic techniques of self-reliance sooner than later. Why not learn from those who already know how to live well without running water and corporate power?
The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living is a mixture of memoir, polemic, and self help. From washing the dishes and bathing, to eating without refrigeration, gardening without running water, and more, this book reveals low-cost alternatives most modern Americans have completely forgotten about.
Most Americans recoil at the idea of simple living. They’re afraid of being swallowed up in Barbarian darkness. People don’t value simple living, so, as a result, our liberty to apply these simple solutions is slipping away just when we need them most. Now it is essentially illegal to survive without permission from the oligarchy. Every elemental act, from building a fire to drinking milk has a regulation attached to it. When simple grassroots answers to life’s personal and planetary woes become illegal, the society is sick and lost. People are not free when they have to ask the government for permission to survive.
