The truth is you likely are not going to fully exit the system or more accurately systems. For all the evils of the systems of control and power there is also good. The key is to not be dependent upon them for you needs and rather use them at your discretion for your wants. The problem is that it is very easy to become convinced that you are in control when in fact you are not. Then much like the addict who thinks they can quit at anytime the reality only kicks in when the supply is cut off.
The key is to narrow down your needs and what the system provides to an overlap, in other words a ven diagram of sorts. What do you need to go on living any decent quality of life. Next what do you not necessarily need to stay alive but you really do require so that you can adapt to a changing world. Information is the one that most easily is explained in this area. Sure turn off all media an you will likely live a longer and happier life. Yet you will miss opportunities to capitalize on trends, you may miss information that would warn you of a threat, say a storm or a fire, etc.
So we don’t “need” media but some form or information is definitely required to make sure we are prepared for what comes our way. We may not need classical education to keep breathing. Our cave man ancestors could barely write other than a few pictograms and likely lived as long as most modern humans. Yet education is critical to developing into the best human you can be in our modern age.
Hence when we look at things that way we can narrow down to a list of key critical areas that are either absolutely necessary to our survival (say food and water) and things that are critical to our ability to thrive (say medicine and information beyond our back yard). Once we do that we can follow a simple plan…
- Make as much of our needs and critical to thrive areas as self sufficient as possible (measured in percentage)
- Create redundancy for those needs and critical components that we can’t be self sufficient in (measured in time, self reliance)
- Be honest with ourselves about where we are still most vulnerable to systemic dependence
- Build up financial redundancy for the short fall of both needs and critical to thrive areas
- Partake at our discretion for our wants that they systems make easy to acquire
Now some scoff at this or see it as being some sort of parasite on the system. The old “libertarians complain about taxes but still use the roads” arguments and such. However, the formula I just gave you is nothing more than a slightly more advanced and faster form of get this, “retirement”. Yep the very dream sold to the population to keep them slaving away inside the system until 90% of their high quality life force is consumed. The dream sold in countless commercials on the TV by Edward Jones, Charles Schwab, American Express, Amerprise and countless others.
I am simply suggesting that by following the course laid out for you today, you may hold hands with your loved one, roll up your pant legs and walk down that beach long before you only have “10 good years left”, at best.
In short, “Seize today, for we know nothing of tomorrow.”
The Key Pillars of Exiting the System
- The mental and emotional exit (the most difficult and most important)
- The financial exit
- The employment exit
- The education and information exit
- The physical exit
- The food system exit
- The water and sanitation exit
- The energy exit
- The health care exit
- The self and property protection exit
Very few people will ever get to a point in life where they can measure all this aspects with a grade of being 100% self sufficient. So the goal is to push self sufficiency as high as possible in all areas, then push self reliance as long as possible in each area as well. Then to over lap the areas we can most practically push like financial reserves to accommodate the areas most difficult to extend like say health care for serious injury or disease.
The person who goes though this exercise over and over in their lives and only succeed with an over all score of even 25 out of 100 will enjoy a life with about 100 times more physical, emotional, spiritual and time freedom than the average person. More importantly it will be very difficult even at that low rate of success for society to control you or take way what you have.
