9780615447902: Surviving Off Off-Grid: Decolonizing the Industrial Mind

Western Society is in confusion, the industrial world is teetering on collapse, and it looks like things could get worse. Agrarian Blogger, historian, and "plain" preacher Michael Bunker has been living off of the grid for many years, and he has some advice for those living in the industrial/consumerist economy ...living an off off-grid life is achievable. It has been done for thousands of years, and it can be done today... It is quite possible that many people who have relied on a failing system for their means of survival will very soon find that they have made a mistake of historic proportions. Historic, because every major "classical" culture went down the same road our society is on today. This book is about the lessons we should have learned, and what you can do to survive what history tells us must come next.***Warning*** In the increasingly fascistic and politically correct environment, many people are easily offended by any opinions with which they do not already agree.  The author has studied and learned from many different people and books from many different religious backgrounds and was able to gather from them what good he could without feeling the need to attack those with differing opinions and worldviews.  Unhappily, in today's society, there are those who believe that books or materials that they do not agree with should have a badge or marking stating that God is mentioned in the book.  Surviving Off Off-Grid was written by a Christian man and his faith informs his worldview and ideas.  He mentions God in the book.  If you are offended by ideas that you don't already hold, or by anyone who dares mention that there is a God in the public square, then this book is not for you.

About the Author:

Michael Bunker is an off-grid farmer, author, historian, philosopher, iconoclast, husband, and father of four living children. He lives with his family in a "plain" Christian Community in Central Texas where he reads and writes books... and occasionally tilts at windmills. Michael's latest, "Modern Religious Idols" is now available on Kindle and in Paperback. MRI follows up on Michael's national bestseller "Surviving Off Off-Grid" which went to #26 on the Amazon.com Bestseller list, and to #2 on the "Movers and Shakers" list. Michael is currently working on several other projects, including a a fiction novel, The Last Pilgrims based on the philosophy Michael taught in Surviving Off Off-Grid. Check out lastpilgrims.com to read the early chapters of the novel. Michael interacts with his readers at facebook.com/michaelbunker, and can be heard twice a week on his BlogTalkRadio show at blogtalkradio.com/michaelbunker.

Review:

"Do you consider yourself a preparedness person? You need to read this book. Has your financial situation only become worse over time, and are you in debt? You need to read this book"... --SiffordSojournal.com

"I find this book to be one of the most profound books I've read in quite some time. It may even be the most relevant (and challenging) book of 2011 with all that is going on economically and politically" --NourishingDays.com

"...what I read was well-written, engaging, informational, and inspiring..." --Playing In The Dirt Blog

"...no one else I know of is saying... the things Michael Bunker is saying in this book. It is an incredibly thought provoking read... what he is saying is not only contra-mundum, it's right on" --Herrick Kimball, The Deliberate Agrarian

"Michael Bunker is not anti-technology and he is not a Luddite... he dares to question whether modern conveniences are necessary, and he's quick to name the cost of dependence: slavery." --Gnowfglins.com
