    That's the easy part. The hard part is not acquiring it.

    Since our household income was cut in half it is fairly simple to stop acquiring new things. Now to get rid of the un-used old things.

    Yip. I came back from six months backpacking with next to nothing, and then people kept giving me things!!! And then I had to buy furniture. Before you know it...
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Big thumbs up here.
    And if there was no state to stop them, the decent people (who would no doubt outnumber the losers) would deal with the losers. An enlightened society isn't really the goal of anarchy, there is no goal with anarchy. The result of anarchy though is absolute freedom, for better or for worse. I would rather err on the side of too much freedom than too much regulation.
    and here too.

    Erm... I think people can organize themselves, but only on a very small scale. When we get into something as big as a country, efficient and truly representative government becomes impossible. *shrugs* C'est la vie.

    I agree with this. I suppose that is why I think about a post apocalyptic world in a sort of romantic way. Survival of the fittest is as fair as nature gets. Grok would kick ass in a world where he alone was responsible for his own well-being. I want to be like Grok.

    ^^^ sometimes I feel the same way. Just living to live. Of course, it won't be all mushy gushy romantic. But I do day dream about not having to work off farm and literally being sustained here %100. I have a ways to go, but I think I can get there someday.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    Anna I was trying to be funny! As in....anarchy cannot be good....we have way to many examples of how awful it is. The concept seems great for people who are kind hearted but the reality is another story.
