does anyone else think money is evil? If you think of all the problems it causes - poverty, greed, murder.. etc since we are all (or strive to be) homesteaders, who things that they can scrape by on a lot less? I tend to think that, while you can to some extent cut , it cost far to much to live in the city. You can't up and decide you don't want utilities anymore, at least here, thats against city regulations. I also feel it is far easier to be poor in the country than in the city. Personally I'd prefer to be poor in a place I like than in a place that drives me near nervous breakdown. I know we can't do entirely without money (not in a capitalist society anyway) . The government always has its hand out for taxes and anything else it "needs for our own good". But I'm certain that (assuming everything is paid off) one could live subsistantly by working a month or two at most off the homestead. Thoughts?
