Simple Living Part 2. Monet & The Mindset of a Homsteader

Simple Living Part 2. Monet & The Mindset of a Homsteader

In this episode, I share my insights from a life of chasing dreams instead of dollars. All I ever wanted when I was a boy, was to live a simple life in a cabin in the woods when I grew up. Instead of listening to what I was told to do, I chose my own path and conquered my dreams. Come along on my philosophical journey where I share my experiences from over 30 years of living off the grid.

Eustace Conway: Self-Sufficient or Threat to Society?

Government Gone Rampant – Action Alert:

Boone, North Carolina: For decades, Eustace Conway has lived an independent, sustainable life, building shelter for himself on his land, growing his own food, setting up outhouse facilities, composting, and allowing others to learn these methods first-hand so that we may once again have a populous versed in the healthy manner of primitive survival skills.

After a preliminary visit from the local Planning & Inspections department, several independent local government agencies together performed a raid on Mr. Conway’s property, and now the Watauga County Health Department has ordered a cease & desist on Mr. Conway’s educational activities, and the Planning & Inspections Department has cited many “violations” on the property, as well as ordered that Eustace Conway bring his structures up to code, or demolish the structures on his own property. Some of the code citations include using unmarked lumber for his constructions (structures are made from cut-down trees without grading system indicators), and requirements for permits, plumbing, and wiring for any structure. Some of the structures cited requiring permits, wiring, and/or plumbing installation include a “roofed-over platform,” a doghouse (shown in video), and a tree house (shown in video).

Clearly, that which is law in today’s society radically contradicts Mr. Conway’s entire way of living. The situation illustrates the fact that a central-planning society is incompatible with individual freedom, personal choice, self-sufficiency, and individuality, concepts upon which this country was founded.

As of right now, Mr. Conway says that he is still in shock & trying to figure out how to proceed. The director of the Watauga County Planning & Inspections says that it is his hope that Mr. Conway will comply with P&I’s demands, though he is not prepared to say what measures will be taken if this is not done, as they will have to consult with the county attorneys in order to determine how to proceed. There are many agencies (including state-level) who have reviewed Conway’s circumstances, and are attempting to take corrective measures, such as special exemptions within the code; however, stumbling blocks are continually met when one entity or department’s attempt at code correction counters another departments’ code requirements. Attempts at amending code also take some length of time. Mr. Conway’s life remains in limbo.
