This photo alone is the reason we want to be off grid homesteaders. We, as a people, have become to lazy and unskilled that we would become cannibalistic savages without the luxuries of our first world privilege. We are too depended on stores and malls instead of ourselves to survive.
Why won’t you waste food or throw out useful things if you had to grow or make them yourself? Because you would see the time and effect to produce a pound of flour or to carve and assemble a chair. Composting toilets are cleaner and saves about 8,000 gallons of water a year for a family of four!
Sometime we need a reminder that we are connected to the earth. We must protect it so it can provide for us.
