5 Ways That Living Off-Grid Makes You Happier And Healthier (And Even Extends Your Life) | Off The Grid News | Prepping and Thriving via Smart Simple Living | Scoop.it
Unhooked Living's insight:
Most people say that modern living methods brought improved sanitation. This leads to a longer, healthier life. It must be said that there is a right way and a wrong way to do anything -- living off grid included. My personal experience is reflected in this article. In fact, I write about this in my little ebook: The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living (https://simpleunhookedliving.wordpress.com). I try not to push this onto people, I just want people to know the information because the way things are going, everyone is going to need to know it. I am heartened that so many more people are starting to care about these things now.

Unhooked Living's insight:
It is only a matter of time before the post election frenzy devolves into crackdowns on the liberty required to thrive and survive. The fascists are fanning assumptions and misunderstandings to explosive levels and bridge building is taking a giant leap backwards. This list of videos was compiled because of targeted attacks and lies about Infowars and calls for President Elect Trump to disavow the site. When I watch these videos, I hope Trump is indeed swayed by the compelling experiences and views of this diverse group of interviewees. Their voices should be elevated rather than censored.
