Eustace Conway: Self-Sufficient or Threat to Society?

The full description for this video was too large to practically include here, so you'll have to go to YouTube if you want to read it all. There are also some other good videos and articles and sites on the web that can help you to learn more about Eustace and his story, but I'll only list a few here. You'll have to search around for yourself if you want to learn more. ;-)

Awesome speech. I could not agree more. I'm trying similar stuff myself at the moment... getting rid of as much as possible. Feels good.

And now I watched the first video.... and the answers that are given by the guy in the conversation regarding plumbing clearly show, that there IS some other motivation behind it than "following laws" or "Providing solutions". They WANTED to shut that community down. And if there would have been plumbing they would have found other stuff to frame him...

Yeah, telling him that he had to have electricity and plumbing installed for his dog house because it was was a building with a roof, etc. was a definite give-away that they were "out to get him". That was just soooo ridiculous. Wikipedia says that the state of North Carolina stepped up last summer in response to all the attention and support he was able to generate about his situation {mostly online} and that they made a new state law that allows for the exclusion of "certain primitive structures" from the building codes. He's apparently fighting against a lien on his property now, but I don't know what that's about.

He was featured last year (among some other people fighting excessive government regulations) in a short feature by John Stossel for FOX News called, War on the Little Guy

The problem is that when you "own" a parcel of land you probably have a title in "fee simple". The state or crown "owns" the land. You have a basic set of rights to use the land, Local governments have the right and responsibility to regulate some uses.If you do not like how the local government works get involved politically.
