    The Wild Route: Leaving Work and Home for a Forest Life

    Deep in a forest in North Carolina lies a community of people who've left their jobs, given up their cell phones, and seceded. A former cybersecurity official, an engineer, a woman and her wild blue-eyed eight-year-old...the inhabitants of Wild Roots, as they call this place, are disillusioned with the ways of the modern world and react by living with, and off, the earth. Living off the grid, they pickle bear meat, harvest chestnuts, and, during the summer, bathe naked in a nearby stream. And yet, every so often, they venture into town to check in. Are they happy with their forest life? Are they lonely? And, are we living in the real world, or are they?

    I always find stories like this interesting and respect the sentiment. I used to dream of moving out to the middle of nowhere and being mostly self sufficient also. The problem is you are basically opting out of being relevant in the current post industrial system we live in. Sounds nice on an individual level, but you surrender your ability to influence anyone in even the smallest way. You also couldn’t effectively criticize globohomo because you would lose firsthand exposure. In way it could be seen as selfish. I think it’s best to keep a foot in both camps, so you don’t go crazy and get depressed, but also so you stand a chance of enlightening others of your nationality.

    I've thought about relocating to an isolated location around Sierra Vista, AZ before. I even looked at real estate in several places. But, as far as cutting all ties with society and just trying to survive off the land is not something I want to do.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    I know a girl and her boyfriend who lives in the forest in Norway, they larp as elves and post lots of pictures on instagram.
    It looks nice, but they are on disability and don't have to worry about money much. Few of us have that luxury.

    It doesn't require much imagination to understand why these two "elves" are prancing around in the boonies... It's obviously due to a mental disorder.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
