Opt Out En Masse

Welcome to one family’s (awkward, groping, often mis-stepped) path towards self-reliance. In an age of Peak Oil, in the decline of the American Empire, in the rise of the Eco + Organic + Fair Trade + Local movements, this is one North American journey towards true sustainability. To re-purpose grass farmer Joel Salatin‘s words:

“We ask for too much salvation by legislation. All we need to do is empower individuals with the right philosophy and the right information to opt out en masse.”

Your thoughts, observations, and questions are most welcome here. But be cool in the comments; I’m fast on the delete button for trolls.
