Where the Foundations portion of this explanation covered some very important information, and brought forth some intriguing concepts, in this portion, Strength, we will go into more detail and, perhaps, develop a more comprehensive understanding of how to Live Free.
There are three primary aspects which, when developed fully, form the Foundation of the Living Free philosophy. Like a braided wire rope, if any one of the strands is weak, the whole is weakened. And when all three strands are equally strong, much work can be done, safely. The wire rope, in this case, is your very life. All of it — body, mind and soul. And it is supremely important that none of it is overlooked or neglected. Otherwise the rope fails, and all that it was holding is lost.
Our Strength consists of:
The Homefront – This is where you live, and your life on a personal level. Your physical health, your financial situation, your personal habits (good and bad), your children, your spouse, your pets, your home, your vehicles, your entertainment, your beliefs…and your example to others. It involves every consideration of daily life, from what you eat and where your sleep, to your religion, your politics and your educational concerns. It is your life, and all that you hold dear.
It involves Homesteading, Homeschooling, and a return to the way Americans once lived every day! If done correctly and completely, it removes government intrusion from your life. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to build something on your land without worrying about some arrogant bureaucrat from the zoning office paying you a much unwanted visit, and charging you a “fine” for building what you want, on your own land? Wouldn’t it be better, instead, for those very bureaucrats to know, beforehand, that they can’t say one word to you about what you do on your land, so long as it doesn’t harm someone else? It can be done. It has been done. And there is so much more that you can do to remove the vast majority of government busybodies from your life. So that you and yours can live in relative peace for as long as possible. The question is, do you have what it takes to make it happen?
Homesteading, by itself, is a large undertaking involving year-round gardening, raising, caring for, butchering and preserving meat and other products from livestock, establishing off-grid water supplies (and off-grid power, if at all possible) and establishing physical and legal defense measures.
It is not for the weak, to be blunt. Few will care to attempt it, mostly out of complacency and laziness. But you are here, reading these words. Perhaps you are different?
Survival - This is just what is says. Studying, learning, practicing and applying those skills which will dramatically increase your chances for surviving the future, no matter what that future may bring. It means “prepping” — preparing for unexpected emergencies. And it isn’t confined to the typical Wilderness or Urban Survival topics — it encompasses both completely.
Some people scoff at this concept, claiming there is no need, or even that the government will take care of them. These are the same people who would be herded into the Superdome and held at the mercy, and whim, of a gargantuan government bureaucracy during a natural disaster. And these are the same people who buy insurance policies…just in case. The root of their excuse is either laziness, complacency, ignorance, or some combination of the three. It is the philosophy of the coward and the fool. Are you a coward, or a fool?
Restoration - This is, ultimately, the supreme goal of Living Free, relying on a “ripple effect” to bring it to fruition. Restoration means that, in time, there are so many Americans actually Living Free, that the “powers that be” are rendered…powerless. For instance, you and your family plant a garden from non-GMO, open-pollinated, heirloom seeds. You take your children out of government indoctrination centers (public school) and start Homeschooling them. You start the process of removing yourself from the government’s jurisdiction. What will happen? Others will notice, and they will ask questions, which you will answer with confident knowledge, experience and a genuine smile on your face. Your own enthusiasm for your new-found Freedom will catch on, and the ripple effect will begin.
How long before one small town is Living Free? And then the next town? An entire county? And, finally, America’s first truly sovereign state in over a century! It can be done. It is being done. You can be one of the first to be a part of it! And you don’t even have to buy some membership, or “kit”. You simply read, or listen, and start doing it.
It won’t be easy. But it will be worth it, for generations to come. What kind of world do you want to live in? What kind of world do you want your children, or their children, to live in?
This is the silver lining you’ve been looking for. Embrace it. It’s free!
