    Yes, and life can be deemed "hard" when you're truly free. Ease and comfort are sold to us at the expense of liberty.

    I feel the most essential mistake humanity has made in this era is that they have confused freedom with irresponsibility. Our ancestors fought tooth and nail to have the right to work themselves to the bone on unforgiving fields. Today the average modern man cringes and moans in agony at the thought of puting for true effort for something. Today we feel that freedom means have over 100 varieties of cheeses and breads in the market rather then the ability to own land and start a family.

    Real freedom is gone today in most of the world. Slowly things are turning into one massive bird nest. The parents of this nest, however, make it their goal to ever keep you from learning how to fly instead of pushing you out of the nest.

    True enough, the owning land part is a particular one they dislike here in the UK, most Americans probably wouldn't believe how heavily property is taxed here, to the point that basically it's impossible to pass on property to your descendants. It's predicted that non industrial scale (but still highly efficient) farms here will disappear in the next twenty or so years, as they are mainly negative in profit now and the 40% inheritance tax will force almost everyone inheriting a less than huge farm to sell it or mortgage it up to the hilt. The entire countryside will be decimated and it will probably get a mention on the news a couple of times and then people will forget about it. Still, contempt for farmers isn't surprising given they aren't big labour voters and there's only one non white farmer in the entire country.

    The government and the banks have effectively turned the entire population into indentured serfs; in exchange for property you take on a vast bond, out of all proportion to actual value, then spend 50 years paying it off, only to have the property you finally own taken from your descendants so that they can also be forced into servitude and the cycle can repeat. The the government tells you to be thankful for everything they have "given" you, if you think about it, it's obscene.

    If these initiatives became too popular they'd just tax them out of existence.

    The book amongst people who strive to be self-sufficient is John Seymour's The complete book of self-sufficiency from 1976. Not too long ago I finally managed to find a Swedish copy in a second-hand bookshop.

    We've grown our own vegetables. A couple of bags full of soil can grow a lot of potatoes more than once.
    I also have a tomato tree.
    (It doesn't matter how old the song is, I won't stop liking it).
