Living off the grid, isn't it way too romanticized? (AMA)

Had the idea long time ago, when I was way younger to just fuck it all
and live on a farm with some friends.

I gave it a try and lived nearly 2 years on a farm (still not completely off the grid!), worked, ate, slept ther
and had a small wooden trailer to live in.

Most energy came from generators and gas.powered heaters.

Winter time sucked, since heaters made it way too hot and heat-preservation was only good in the barn, where hay-balls were placed unter the roof.

Toilet was a chemical box
or a real toilet, that was in the house of my "co-workers" outside.

At some point, when you had to consider bathing or just going naked with a morning-wood to the bathroom impossible
I just said "fuck it!", lived on welfare for a short time
and got a relatively nice job to pay for the rent in a cozy flat!

Sure, its a overwhelming feeling, waking up, seeing the sun go up and starting work a t your pace while still regenerating from work of the last days.

But I am sure, the only reason for this "euphoric" feeling many dropouts describe is just a small thing that keeps you alive in a cave-man status.

I used to have the same dream of living off the grid when I was young. The more time I spent making my way into the real world, the more I realized what a silly isolationist stance that was. You can learn survival skills and prep for emergencies while still participating in society. What's the point of acting like everyone's your enemy?

Loads of people put loads of work into surviving the collapse of society. I wonder what would happen if they all put that much effort into preserving it instead.

Sometimes it's better for something to be destroyed so something else can take it's place. The chance of something better.

Or as Hatebreed said

Cleanse this world with flame
End this, cleanse this
Rebuild and start again
Obliterate what makes us weak

End this and embrace the destruction
End this to embrace new life (new life)

Destroy everything(x2)
Obliterate what makes us weak
Destroy everything(x3)
Decimate what threatens me
Destroy everything(x3)
So a new life can begin

Destroy everything(x3)

Rebuild and start again, again

Because your farm isnt built for winter
You want a tiled stove or a boiler with water radiators and a insulated attic

I think the problem is that people abandon living in a larger community when they do it which is stupid. You need to do it with like 30 other people at least to make it feasible.
