10 Underground Homes for Black People who have had Enough of America! (1 Million Views)

youthgroupPosted on July 21, 2016 by Owen Geiger & Love

Tired of systematic corruption? Ready for global harmony? Underground homes located in cool spaces is the way to go! Are you ready for peace of mind, and walking away from a society that is obsessed with money & greed? Enjoy the video below… then walk away from the grid forever!

So which one is your favorite? My favorite underground house in this video is the Estate Lattenstrasse in Switzerland. It’s not only super beautiful, it’s also energy efficient thanks to being underground and insulated with recycled glass foam insulation. More excellent photos of this house by Vetsch Architektur can be found on Architizer.com.“From underground houses that look like hobbit homes or even a house that looks like it was from the Teletubbies, these are amazing!”

How to Travel & Live For Free (without mooching)
 How to travel america for Free (without mooching) Rob Greenfield

How to Travel America For Free (without mooching)

As I write this I am traveling America without a penny in my pocket.  I left my home in San Diego on June 2nd with $2,000 cash and on August 12th I took a leap of faith in humanity and gave the last $421 I had with me to a non-profit.   I made the goal that day of finishing my ride to New York City moneyless just to prove to myself and others that it is possible.  Today I arrived in New York City on my bicycle, still without a penny in my pocket.  People have tried to give me money but I have easily refused it.

This experience is about much more than just not spending money. It’s about showing that you and I can be contributing members to society whether we have money or not. It’s about showing that there are much more rewarding ways to live than just throwing money at every situation. It’s about living a life that is truly beneficial to the earth, my community, and myself. It’s about being more involved in our communities and treating each other with respect.  And it’s also about teaching you how to live with less money so that you can follow your dreams and live independently of corrupted systems that don’t serve your best interests.

If you follow this guide exactly you will literally be able to travel the country without a penny in your pocket. However, I know that most of you won’t be able take that leap of faith right away because it has taken me years of practice and a vast amount of dedication and resourcefulness to get to this point. You can most certainly adapt a few of these tips though and in doing so learn to travel very inexpensively. Once you learn to do that the country and the world will be yours to see.

I’m no stranger to traveling without money.

Earlier this year I flew to Panama with just the clothes on my back and passport to Share My Way Home and two years ago I flew to Cabo, Mexico moneyless and hitched 1,300 miles back to San Diego through the desert. These trips were downright grueling but I came out of them knowing for certain I could travel without money.  Now I’ve made it a way of living and over the last month and a half of traveling moneyless there were only a few remote occasions when I even had the urge for money.  I’m amazed that I, a man who used to say I was going to be a millionaire, now forgo the thought of money on a daily basis, but it is in fact the case.

I have learned to live simply and because of that I live more freely than I ever have before. Here is my guide of how to travel America for free without mooching:

Gear Up with Some Necessities

How to Travel America for Free (without mooching)

In order to be self-sufficient and travel sustainably you may need to spend a little bit of money upfront but if you buy everything used you won’t need much money to get going at all. Shop at thrift stores and second hand stores or use sharing economy websites like Yerdle and Craigslist.  With a resourceful mind you might not even need to use money to get the necessities.   Most importantly remember to travel light and only take what you actually need.  My necessities will be mentioned throughout this blog and the tips within can help you with procuring them.

 

Go Human Powered

How to Travel America for Free (without mooching)

The bicycle is an amazing machine that can get you just about anywhere you need to go. One of the greatest keys to freedom is having a bicycle. It doesn’t have to be a sweet bamboo bike like I ride though. A $300 bike from Craigslist will do the trick or you can even get one for free through an Earn-A-Bike program. You’ll never have to pay for gas, parking, tickets, or all the other money sucking expenses of car travel.

2-1

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

 

Dumpster Dive for Food

How to Travel America for Free (without mooching)

It’s a shame but in America we throw away enough food to feed another entire America. That means we throw away nearly half of all the food we produce. I have found out first hand that our grocery store dumpsters are filled to the brim with perfectly good food. There is such an abundance that I can be picky with what I choose to eat from the dumpsters. I’ve eaten from over 500 dumpsters across America and never been sick.

Just go behind the store, open up the dumpster, and enjoy the bounty of free food.

 

Forage for Food

3-1

Open up your eyes and you’ll realize that food is growing free all around you. Fruit from trees that aren’t being tended to, wild grape vines, cactuses in the desert, mushrooms in the woods, berries, and wild herbs have all found their way into my belly. Food is Free!

 

Water

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

Bring a water purifier and a reusable bottle. Many parts of our country are abundant with natural bodies of water and a simple water purifier will make it clean and healthy for you to drink. If that is not available we are also blessed with clean tap water. You can get this from public fountains, restaurants, bathroom sinks, etc. There is no shortage of places to fill up your bottle. Be conservative with water too. The average American uses one hundred gallons of water each day while I am able to use just five or ten.

 

Sleeping

How can you sleep without paying for a hotel room? Well, it turns out that the body needs so much less than you think. Carry a tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping mat and you will find that you can sleep just about anywhere.

I’ve slept in campgrounds

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

Parks

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

Roadsides

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

Abandoned buildings

And the middle of nowhere’s

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

All of these places have provided me with a place to rest for the night.  Not to mention all the churchyards, fire stations, baseball fields, backyards, and even cemeteries.  I’m a man of 5’10” and there are an unlimited number of places that I can comfortably fit my small body for the night.

You can also use websites like Couchsurfing and Warmshowers to stay for free with a host.  This is Juanita and Chris in Louisiana:

5-5

Or you can stay with friends and family of course.  This is my mom:

Live Naturally- Personal Hygiene

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

If you accept that the body does not need all the modern luxuries that are advertised you’ll see that it does not cost money to upkeep the body. In the past I would shower every day but it’s now been 17 months since my last shower. I bathe solely in lakes, rivers, and the ocean or use a gallon of water from the sink. The only body care products I carry are toothpaste, Dr. Bronner’s Soap, a toothbrush, floss, and essential oil. This actually is one area where about $20-$50 per year could really help you out.
The more naturally I live, the more freely I live.

Electricity

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

Well you don’t need electricity to live but if you choose to carry some electronic devices like a computer or cell phone bring a solar panel to meet your energy demands.  This way you don’t depend on the grid for electricity. Otherwise you can just plug into any of the millions of outlets that exist in America.

My cell phone is currently the only bill that I have and one day I may get away from that as well.  This summer I canceled my last credit card, paid my last debt, ditched all of my other bills, and switched to a local credit union.  I’m still progressing into a moneyless way of living myself but I’ve been chipping away from the dependence and am more free than ever before.

 

Travel with a Purpose Greater than Yourself

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

If you travel with a purpose to make the earth a better place you will find that your needs will be more easily met. People are always excited to be a part of a greater cause. By involving them they often receive as much from helping you as you received from their help.  I give all of my trips a theme such as doing good for others on the Goodfluence Tour, demonstrating eco-friendly living on Off The Grid Across America, or simple living and sharing on Share My Way Home.  People love to be a part of my travels and go out of their way to get involved and host me!

 

Make Goodness Your Currency

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

When you do good for others, others will do good for you. The great thing about goodness as a currency is the more you give, the more you receive. You don’t need to have anything to start with to use this currency. There are so many people in need of help and all you have to do is go out there and help them.

 

Exchange and Barter

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

I have started to make transactions that don’t involve money but I was somewhat unfamiliar to this in early adulthood. You can volunteer on organic farms with Wwoof and have your lodging and food covered while you’re there for example. You could go dumpster diving for $100’s of dollars worth of food and trade that for what you need (as long as you tell them where you got it). You can also work in exchange for what you need. Exchanges don’t always have to be linear either. By giving to others when you can you’ll find that what you need may come from others not involved, just because they know you are a good person.

 

Entertainment

Entertainment needs not cost a cent. It is only a matter of perspective as to finding your forms of entertainment. Let nature provide you with smiles.  This field of wheat made my spirits soar.

11

The clouds, the air, the green grass, and the trees bring me pleasure.

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.Their are 300 million Americans all with their own unique story that can provide friendship and conversation.

Learn how to repair your own bike and get used parts. Carry simple tools to fix your bike and some spare parts such as inner tubes. Often you can get free parts from community bike shops or in exchange for volunteering.

And the animals have often kept me company too!

There are thousands of public events that you can find for free like documentary screenings, dances, and parties. Communities are loaded with free events. The library is also a wonderful resource filled with infinite knowledge both via books and public computers.

 

Live off of America’s Wastefulness

I mentioned dumpster diving for food but there is so much waste in America that you can find just about anything you need in the trash with just a little work. Even thrift stores get so much stuff donated to them that they toss a lot of it into dumpsters. In my opinion that is free for the taking. Retail dumpsters, residential trashcans, and alleyways can provide you with everything you need and at the same time you will be diverting stuff from the landfill. The Average American throws away 4.5 pounds of trash per day. Basically everything you need is in the trash.  Here you can even see me bathing in a leaky fire hydrant.

Shake Off Social Norms

13

Live in a manner that you know is right for you, serves you, and serves humanity. Say see you later to the social norms that restrict you from doing what you truly want to do. Stop caring what people think and start being the you that you truly want to be. When I decided to this it opened up my life and allowed me to live in the manner that I speak of today.

 

Take Help

14 Take help

Don’t be too proud to take help from others.  All humans are needy.  We all depend on community to support us.  We all depend on the earth to provide us with food, water, and air.  It’s only the illusion of money that makes some people appear that they don’t need help.

Sometimes you’ll take and sometimes you’ll give.  You won’t always be able to give back to the person who helped you but as long as you are paying it forward then you are helping to create a better society.  Plus a lot of people feel great purpose in helping others so you may be returning the favor more than you know.

 

Realize it’s OK to Not Pay Taxes

Some would argue that if you are not spending money and you aren’t paying taxes, you are mooching from public systems such as the roads, parks, and libraries. That could hold true but you can assure that not to be the case by living in service of your country.  And heck no I’m not talking about the army.  I am talking about doing your part to help these systems that you are involved in but not paying taxes to do so.

If you use the library, volunteer at it.

If you use the public parks, clean up some trash.

If you use the public bathrooms, leave them cleaner than you found them.

It’s important to realize that reciprocation does not have to occur on a direct give and take basis. For example, a man could spend one hundred percent of his money, say 1 million dollars, on creating a safe highway infrastructure for Americans but does that mean that he doesn’t deserve to use the public parks, the library, or walk down the sidewalk?  Of course not.

Maybe you don’t have a way to give back to the road system but you could dedicate time to getting more people to walk, lessening the impact on the roads. Maybe you don’t pay for healthcare but you can keep others that use free healthcare out of the hospitals by teaching them to be healthier via their eating and exercise habits. In these ways you can actually save taxpayers money, which would cover your lack of financial contribution. It’s important to note that 50% of taxes go to war so when you do pay taxes you are funding war.

You have to think outside the box to understand this but taxes are by no means the only way to contribute. Money is not the only form of transaction, although we have been lead to believe that.  You can be a contributing member to society without paying taxes or using money. In fact you can contribute much more in this manner than you would by paying taxes. Once you realize this, your possibilities are endless and the future ahead of you will shine bright.

 

Then forgot what taxes are and pretend to be a child again.  You can start by hanging from a tree.

15-1

Then stand on your head.

15-2

Play like a wild animal.

15-3

And explore the simple unknowns.

15-4

 

Earlier this year I received a message from Abby, one of my first girlfriends.  She said, “I remember you being convinced you would be a millionaire some day, that was your life goal.”  I dated her when I was in University and if anyone knew me at that time it was definitely her.  I didn’t just want to have stacks of money though.  I wanted to be a millionaire because I thought vast amounts of money bought freedom.  Now I’ve learned that the drive for money actually makes you a slave.  A slave to the dollar, a slave to bills, a slave to your stuff, but most importantly a slave to your own mind.  When your priority is to make money you will never have enough.

I no longer desire to be a millionaire but looking over my life purpose from nearly ten years ago I see something very familiar written at the top of the list.

“Live a life full of health and happiness”

For the most part my goals haven’t changed, just my means of achieving them.  In the last few years I have come to find great levels of health and happiness by living simply.  It turns out that all I need to feel an abundance of health and happiness is real food, clean water, simple clothes, simple shelter, and most importantly a bounty of friendship, love, and purpose.  I have learned to meet all of these needs with the usage of very little money and this have given me the freedom and time to pursue my greatest desires and follow my deepest passions.  This knowledge in simplicity has given me the ability to live more freely than I ever could have imagined in my younger years.  Now that my needs are met I have dedicated my life to being a steward of the earth that and helping all the beings that make it home.

This reading may not inspire you to travel America without a penny to your name but at the very least it can help make traveling more accessible to you. This is important because traveling creates strong, open minded, resourceful, understanding, and compassionate beings.    If you wish to practice what I’ve written for you I recommend that you leave your house on foot for just one day with no money or possessions in your pocket.  Experience what I am talking about in your own community and leave everything else at home so that you are forced to immerse in the moment.  You may experience hunger or be uncomfortable but this could stir a feeling of aliveness that you haven’t felt since childhood.  If anything goes wrong home will still be there for you to retreat to.  I started small the same way that I am recommending to you. It took me many years of adventure to get me to where I am today and that will likely be the case for you as well.

What I speak of in this blog can be of service to you even if you feel like you can’t travel right now or don’t want to.  All of these ideas can be adapted into your life at home as well to live in a manner that is beneficial to the earth, your community, and yourself and to pursue a deeper level of health, happiness, and freedom.

Start living the life you desire today.

How to ELIMINATE White Supremacy, Immediately! (9 Steps to Making Global Oppression Obsolete!)

By Love Spirit of FYM

People of color could change the world, immediately! People of color make up 90% of the global population. People of color and women make up the majority population of America. White men over 35 make up 20% of the American population. People of color (Africans) started civilization and built 6 industrialized countries with free dehumanizing labor.
——-o
How to make White Supremacy Obsolete:
——-o
o-AMSTERDAM-SHIPPING-CONTAINER-HOMES-5701. People of color must drop-kick false narratives and images about people of color.  For example, Adam & Eve were not the first people on earth 6,000 years ago. People of color have no relevant history.  Black men are lazy, dangerous & thugs.

Racism / hate is a false belief/concept created by our (Europeans) oppressors to economically dominate the world. People of color are very powerful and makeup 90% of the world’s population.  The purpose of racism, sexism, economic oppression and police brutality is to keep the masses poor, separated and distracted from an imperialistic agenda.

—–o
Fact: people of color make up 90% of the global population. Europeans created lies to oppress all people of color. Religion(s) were created by man to control and oppress people of color and poor communities. The only way to solve this issue is to simply walk away and stop giving the system our power, money, labor and or energy.

—-o

How to make a corrupt system obsolete? All oppressed people must stop renting or buying real estate from (Europeans) people and banks. Only buy or rent housing from people of color and black-owned banks.  Do you have $50 plus dollars in savings?  it would Be smart and buy a piece of inexpensive land and or a fixer upper house.  Visit: Zillow.com, Craigslist.com, and Backpage.com and buy a house or land from $500 plus. Land ownership is king!

Our main interest must be land & building our own homes with organic food gardens. There are over 20 million abandoned homes in America, buy a fixer upper so you can own the land.  People of color must buy land! Hire a white person to buy the land for you. Only buy or trade organic food from people of color. Buy everything from people of color…. only work for yourself and or for people of color.  If you need help go to Free Resources on this website.

——o
2. People of Color must change our perception of our world.

Fact: West Africans started civilization 3.4 million years ago. The earth is 4.5 billion years old, the Universe is a cool 14.5 billion years old, not 6000 years old.

Fact: All human beings come from West Africa; humanity was birthed from a black woman 280,000 years ago, not from Adam & Eve.

Fact: Africans created Kings, Queens, Pharaohs, Gods, and Goddesses.

Fact: West Africans created: Agriculture, architecture, language, math, trade, mining, global exploration, art, music, instrument’s, jewels, textiles, the wheel, the car, spices, clothing, the binary code for computers, the cell phone, light, we built the first universities and libraries, we created religions. Most, current religions (Christianity) plagiarized ancient African religious text.

Fact: Kidnapped and enslaved Africans & Indigenous people — built 6 countries and made America the richest country in the world. During slavery–America made over $100 trillion dollars from free black dehumanizing labor.  For the last 500 years, Africans have enriched America at an estimated of $250 trillion in free labor, economic terrorism (Black Wall street, Move & Eight other acts of terrorism by the government) & illegal incarceration and stolen land. This means we have the ability to build nations.
——o
3. Only buy / support black businesses. We must start small tax-free cash based services. See below. People of color must shift away from USD currency. We have to gift, barter and or trade for goods and services. Stop using banks and use Bitcoin & black-owned banks.

gamechangers
4. Grow organic food everywhere. (European) supremacist have historically destroyed people of color through Sugar, fats, dairy & meat.  Our healthcare industry is the number #2 killer of people of color. People of color have to control our own food production, without exception! You can grow food in 6 days (super foods) for $4. Download our free organic global food map. You can find free healthy food, today.
—–o

5. We must home-school children of color and teach them the truth of our history, sciences, evolution, how to start a small business at a young age, how to build shelter, sustainable health care, etc.  People of color and poor people must drop kick false man mad religions and dogmas that oppress us. Teach your children to Never Look for a Job, AGAIN!
—-o

All People of Color (children & adults) must do the following:

1. POC (People of Color) must grow organic non-GMO foods. You can grow food at home for pennies on the dollars.

2. We must purchase land and build shelter. People of color must buy land globally, before buying a car, house, and or depreciable assets. Stop buying stuff that has no value.

3. Today, Never Ever Look for a Job, AGAIN… we must start a small tax-free cash-based business. (It could be baking cookies or helping seniors.).  People of color must own and produce goods and service for our own global community.

4. People of color must homeschool our children–No exception! No one should educate our people except our people.  Free Your Mind will show you how to have free homeschooling, college, and graduate school. No Need to Pay for an Education. Education must be FREE! Family, please get rid of your HDTV.

5. We must teach kindness, compassion, love, self-protection, courage and how powerful we are. (These five concepts would change the world.)
——6af94cd59485b740b32183eebe74245d63cb6cb4o
6. Every black person must start a small tax-free cash based (off the grid service). You can start a  service for free. (sell cookies, produce underwear, lawn care, build houses for people of color, grow food for your community, become a holistic healer, sell toilet tissue, etc.). We provide a cool list of businesses below.
——
7. Learn how to build and own a  sustainable house for under $2500. For example a container house, Haba terra house, etc. Every black person should know how to build a shelter.  Once you control your shelter and food you will be independent of (European) people and the system.
——o
10015300265-New-Home-Construction8. People of color must leave police occupied communities. In communities like Ferguson, Newark, NJ, Detroit, Chicago, etc… Black people are hunted, murdered and caged for profit. We have to move–No exceptions. Every time you pay taxes or buy from other groups (Europeans)  we are oppressing ourselves.  Our book, Free Housing Directory will help you find the best places to live for free for people of color.
——
9. How to make the prison industrial complex obsolete? 1. We must move away from these unhealthy communities, we can’t raise our children in prison camps and that’s what these small communities are. 2. Our children must replace selling drugs and illegal stuff for a real business. A real business can be very lucrative. 3. Our children must be home-schooled. 4. All current prisoners must stop working, immediately. Profits would end and the incentives to lock up black and brown people would end. If you’re coming out of jail… start a business and never look back.  If you need free housing, check out our Free Resources. 5. People of Color must create a global network that empowers people of color to leave prison and create abundance and education. Please send this site to incarcerated people.
——
Let’s Recap:

(1) Immediately, people of color must reject our false narrative.  We must embrace a true and positive narrative of self.  Ignore all aspects of (European) supremacy… whatever you ignore–no longer to exist.  If you are approached by the police or (Europeans) in authority, be quiet, soft and know they have no power and don’t exist. You attract what you focus on and what you think exist. Be polite and ignore the existence of a white supremacist reality.  Now, since all humans are from Africa… we are all African. We are all people of color on planet Earth; originating from an African woman some 240,000 years ago.  We are only one race, the human race.  Ninety percent of all people are good… expect kindness from people who are kind to you.

(2) Stop expecting our oppressors & killers to take care of people of color. We are more than capable of taking care of ourselves. We survived for 3.4 million years.

(3) Expect the best from each other and empower each other. We create what we expect.

(4) Focus on building a new sovereign global community–like the Indians, Amish, Jews, etc. Only eat organic foods–drop kick GMOs and chemicals in the food & water. I recommend becoming a Vegan… it will save your life and the life of many creatures.

(5) People of color must drop kick traditional health care and live a Vegan lifestyle and heal thy self, naturally and almost for free. No need for insurance. (earthclinic.com)

(6) Never ever work for our (European) oppressors unless we are contractors and own our own company.

(7) Simply expect the best from our people and lovingly support each other.  If we do these things—our world would change in an instant. Love is every simple. Love is kind. Love is always honest. Love is empowering. Love makes you better. People of color have been trained to distrust each other, this makes it easy for white supremacist to control us through fear and self-doubt. Once again, this is simply an illusion. White supremacy is an intentional illusion we continue to perpetuate by giving it energy and money. For example, black athletes makeup 80% of NBA and NFL and make a small percentage of this trillion dollar industry. If black athletes walked away from this industry, they could change global policies in one week.  Imagine how much the black community could make economically if all high school and college black athletes attended black schools.
——o

As The New Jim Crow author Michelle Alexander argues, this disparity reflects a fundamental unfairness still at the root of our judicial system: “In many ways, the imagery doesn’t sit right. Here are white men poised to run big marijuana businesses, dreaming of cashing in big — big money, big businesses selling weed — after 40 years of impoverished black kids getting prison time for selling weed, and their families and futures destroyed. Now, white men are planning to get rich doing precisely the same thing?”

10 Facts About Being Homeless In The USA

homeless_la
1.  Over half a million people are homeless

On any given night, there are over 600,000 homeless people in the US according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Most people are either spending the night in homeless shelters or in some sort of short-term transitional housing.  Slightly more than a third are living in cars, under bridges or in some other way living unsheltered. The irony is that there are more empty houses in the United States than there are homeless people.

2.  A quarter of homeless people are children

HUD reports that on any given night over 138,000 of the homeless in the US are children under the age of 18. Thousands of these homeless children are unaccompanied according to HUD.  Another federal program, No Child Left Behind, defines homeless children more broadly and includes not just those living in shelters or transitional housing but also those who are sharing the housing of other persons due to economic hardship, living in cars, parks, bus or train stations, or awaiting foster care placement.  Under this definition, the National Center for Homeless Education reported in September 2014 that local school districts reported there are over one million homeless children in public schools.

3.  Tens of thousands of veterans are homeless

Over 57,000 veterans are homeless each night.  Sixty percent of them were in shelters, the rest unsheltered.  Nearly 5000 are female.

4.  Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness in women

More than 90% of homeless women are victims of severe physical or sexual abuse and escaping that abuse is a leading cause of their homelessness.

5. Many people are homeless because they cannot afford rent

The lack of affordable housing is a primary cause of homelessness according to the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty.  HUD has seen its budget slashed by over 50% in recent decades resulting in the loss of 10,000 units of subsidized low-income housing each and every year.

6.  There are fewer places for poor people to rent than before

One eighth of the nation’s supply of low income housing has been permanently lost since 2001.  The US needs at least 7 million more affordable apartments for low-income families and as a result millions of families spend more than half their monthly income on rent.

7.  In the last few years millions have lost their homes

Over five million homes have been foreclosed on since 2008, one out of every ten homes with a mortgage.  This has caused even more people to search for affordable rental property.

8.  The Government does not help as much as you think

There is enough public rental assistance to help about one out of every four extremely low income households.  Those who do not receive help are on multi-year waiting lists.  For example, Charlotte just opened up their applications for public housing assistance for the first time in 14 years and over 10,000 people applied.

9.  One in five homeless people suffer from untreated severe mental illness

While about 6% of the general population suffers from severe mental illness, 20 to 25% of the homeless suffer from severe mental illness according to government studies.  Half of this population self-medicate and are at further risk of addiction and poor physical health.  A University of Pennsylvania study tracking nearly 5000 homeless people for two yearsdiscovered that investing in comprehensive health support and treatment of physical and mental illnesses is less costly than incarceration, shelter and hospital services for the untreated homeless.

10.  Cities are increasingly making homelessness a crime

A 2014 survey of 187 cities by the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty found: 24% make it a city-wide crime to beg in public; 33% make it illegal to stand around or loiter anyplace in the city; 18% make it a crime to sleep anywhere in public; 43% make it illegal to sleep in your car; and 53% make it illegal to sit or lay down in particular public places.   And the number of cities criminalizing homelessness is steadily increasing.

For more information look to the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, the National Center for Homeless Education and the National Coalition on the Homeless.

How to Squat in Abandoned Property

How to Squat in Abandoned Property

Squatting, the practice of living in abandoned or unoccupied spaces that a squatter does not legally own, is a great way to avoid paying rent, if you’re willing to take the risk. While many squatters are routinely evicted, arrested, harassed, or even, in some parts of the world, beaten or killed, some manage to make comfortable long-term homes on someone else’s property. A few are even able to take legal possession of their adopted digs through a process called “adverse possession”, or, in difficult times, show a property owner that it may be in their best interest to work something out; they are quite possibly only reticent because they don’t know you — have your references handy. Whether you’re unemployed, underpaid, or just extraordinarily thrifty, squatting may be the solution to your housing needs.

Steps

  1. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 1.jpg
    1

    Know the laws in your area. In many jurisdictions, squatting is a criminal activity and may land you in jail. In some places, notably the UK (though Scotland is one exception), squatting is legal as long as you follow certain procedures and avoid breaking other laws, such as breaking and entering.

  2. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 2.jpg
    2

    Form a group. You can squat by yourself but it is preferable to squat with at least two people, especially in a rural area. That said, it is usually best to build a small community or at least havea couple friends with you to help defend the property against thieves and other threats and to share the work and expenses of maintaining the place.

    • Choose your squat mates carefully. Deciding whom you want to live with is a lot like choosing a roommate, except that you need to be even more judicious, since there is no landlord or legal machinery with which to settle disputes. You want to choose fellow squatters who have the same goals as you and who have compatible personalities. You also probably want to make sure to choose squat mates who won’t cause trouble with the police or the neighbors.
    • Set ground rules together. The more you can iron out the ground rules before you settle in, the better. Some squats, for example, prohibit drinking alcohol on the premises, while others mandate that each member devote a certain amount of time working on squat. It’s important that you come to these rules through collaboration and compromise. Write them down, if possible, and have everybody sign them.
  3. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 3.jpg
    3

    Find a place to squat. Some examples of places to squat are abandoned spaces such as warehouses, houses, pubs and offices. Most experienced squatters prefer abandoned or unoccupied spaces because property owners who no longer use their property are less likely to object to someone Else’s use of it, and are therefore less likely to take legal action against the squatters. Among these abandoned spaces,publicly-owned buildings—particularly those which came into government possession because of the owner’s failure to pay taxes—often offer the best chance of a long-term living situation. The most obvious sign a building is unoccupied is a steel door or boarded-up windows. Other signs include very old newspapers in front, vandalism, parts of the building in disrepair, and disconnected power (check to see if the meter is running).

  4. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 4.jpg
    4

    Enter the space. If you have any reason to believe the space is actively used or might pose a health risk to you or your squat mates, do not squat it or attempt to enter it. When first entering a building, try to find a way in that does not require you to “break in” or otherwise cause property damage to gain entry. It may be useful to pretend to be looking for a lost pet or have a similar excuse ready. Sometimes the door will be open or missing, but other times you may need to enter through a window.

  5. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 5.jpg
    5

    Scope it out. Once inside, try to get an idea of how sound the structure is and how safe and comfortable it would be. Beware large structural cracks, sagging or broken ceilings or floors, or other signs of serious damage. Of course, if the building has been condemned that’s often a good sign that it is unsafe, but that is not always true. Also check how well insulated the building is—is it cool inside on a hot day or warm inside on a cold day, for example—and see if it looks like it could be made into a home. Expect the premises to be dirty—you can clean it up, though.

  6. 6

    Trial the space you chose for one night, and be observant. If you feel safe, continue to squat and do everything that is necessary to turn it into a habitable area. Some abandoned structures still have running water or even electricity. Take advantage of this.

  7. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 7.jpg
    7

    Secure the building. If you’re hoping to use the building as a long-term squat, it is vital that you secure the premises. Replace broken windows and doors, if possible, and board them up if you can’t immediately replace them. Change the locks on the doors. In many countries (for example the UK, where squatting is a civil matter, unlike in the U.S.) this step will help you establish a legal right to be there. If you can show that you have indeed taken possession of the building, it is much more difficult to have you evicted. In the UK, it means that the owner will have to take you to court.

  8. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 8.jpg
    8

    Clean the place up. Obviously you’ll want to sweep away the layers of dust, get rid of rats or other pests, etc., but you should also try to make the building habitable and comfortable. Not only will this make your living situation more enjoyable, it will, in some jurisdictions, make it more difficult to have you removed, and it may help you negotiate with the owner if he or she shows up. Patch holes in the walls or roof, bring in appliances or get the existing ones working, maybe even add a coat of paint or plant a garden. This is your home, after all.

  9. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 9.jpg
    9

    Try to get utilities. Sometimes the water and power will be on when you get there, but usually this isn’t the case. If you’re planning on staying for a while, try to get these services turned back on. In many countries, utility services can’t be denied just because you’re squatting. Still, it’s usually best not to disclose that fact when dealing with utility companies. You may need to pay a deposit or pay off unpaid bills from the previous owners. If you’re just planning a short-term stay, you’re probably best off not trying to get utilities as it may bring unwanted attention to you.

  10. Squat in Abandoned Property Step 10.jpg
    10

    Decide how to deal with the neighbors. There are two opposing methods of interacting with neighbors. Which you choose should depend on the circumstances of your squat.

    • Be as inconspicuous as possible. Try to make sure the neighbors don’t even notice you’re there. This can be pretty easy depending on where the squat is located. Try to enter only through the back door or only at night, and be as quiet as possible while within the building. (NOTE: In some states, you can’t hide the fact that you’re squatting if you expect to ever take adverse possession of the property because according to some state laws you have to be openly living on a property you don’t own. Hiding the fact that you’re living there may affect your ability to take adverse possession once the statute of limitations is reached. But who cares what your neighbors think in this case, you’re following the law, and that’s what’s important.)
    • Befriend your neighbors, if you are willing to take the risk. If you’re planning on staying for a while, somebody will eventually discover you, so you might as well be upfront and positive about your presence. Introduce yourselves and let the neighbors know that you’ve moved in. Make sure they see you making repairs to the building or cleaning up the yard. If you can make a rundown exterior look great, your neighbors might actually appreciate you. If you have enough support from the neighboring residents/owners, they might support you if your squat if is encroached upon.

    Establish legal property rights through a process called “adverse possession.” There are many parts of the world in which squatters have legally gained property rights through a process called “adverse possession.” In some cases, this may involve occupying an abandoned property for a certain period of time and/or paying the property taxes that the property owner failed to pay. This is the final goal for a long-term squatting situation, but it very rarely occurs. Research the local laws and find out what steps are necessary to make your squat a legal residence. In California, for example, you need to pay property tax for 5 years and have “cultivated or improved” the property to receive ownership. Your possession of the premises must generally also be visible and obvious. The exterior of a squat in Spain. Note the squatter symbol in the doorway on the left. Note also that while the building is colorful, it appears well-maintained. In many parts of the world, squatters can establish a legal right to occupy the property if they take care of it and establish themselves, and as a result squatters can be quite conspicuous. This squat is even decorated with political messages.

This squat is even decorated with political messages.

Tips

  • Find a source of water. If you’re lucky enough to find a place with running water, you’re set. But not every squatter is this lucky. Having water is essential to making a squat habitable.
  • You can find out who owns a building by visiting the local assessor or clerk and recorder. This information is usually public and may help you determine the suitability of a building.
  • In many jurisdictions, the police can evict you only if the property owner requests it and only if the property owner legally establishes that you don’t have a right to be there. In some places, this is harder than you might think, so check your legal options if the threat of eviction looms. There are organizations available in many countries that can help you defend your claim.
  • If the property owner wants you out, try to negotiate with him or her instead of causing conflict. You will make a more favorable impression if you have already fixed up the property and if you are living a responsible, low-key life.
  • Try to make sure you have at least one or two people in the building at all times during the initial stages of a squat. This will help deter thieves and vandals, and it will make it more difficult for people to lock you out.
  • You can also squat buildings to be used as public areas. Not all squats are residences. Some are social centers that take the place of comparable services which are otherwise missing in the community, e.g., bartering centers, libraries, game rooms (just throw in a ping pong table), and meeting spaces.

Warnings

  • Examine your states’ position concerning “Squatter’s Rights”. Squatters have rights to the property they are squatting on only when done legally. In England and Wales, there is what’s known as a Section 6 squatter’s rights notice in the window meaning the owner cannot evict you without taking you to court, which can take several months (this only applies to rented/abandoned or commercial properties – anyone who normally occupies [or intends to occupy – such as a new owner or tenant] a residential property [even a tenant] can order you to leave [with a sentence of upto 6 months for refusal] or use force to enter the property). In Scotland, however, squatting is a criminal offense and can result in your arrest. Florida law encourages you to post notices that the property is under siege.
  • Take steps to protect yourself against thieves, vandals, and others who might harass you or try to cause you harm. Squatting can be especially dangerous if carried out alone.
  • Make the squat obvious. Be open and notorious with your squat as long as you have made it legal by filing the necessary papers with your particular circuit court.
  • Laws regarding adverse possession usually have statements requiring the person to be acting in “good faith”. Squatting is not considered acting in good faith. Acting in “good faith” usually requires some legitimate claim to the property. In many states “good faith” is not part of adverse possession laws. You can claim a property by “color of title” meaning that you have filed papers with your local court stating that you are squatting under “color of title” with the beginning date of your tenure. According to Florida law, a property must remain under siege for 7 years continuously without an eviction. You can also do adverse possession through “claim of right” meaning that no one is using or maintaining the property.
  • UK law recently (2012) changed to make squatting criminal offence rather than just a civil matter in residential properties. Squatting in non residential buildings is still a civil matter, don’t let them fool you!
  • Don’t put illegal items on the property.
  • Be aware of your state laws and be willing to accept the legal consequences of squatting. Try to avoid breaking other laws, such as damaging property.
  • Consult an attorney.

10 Best Cities to Find Free Rent, Food & a Car for Work! (Move by this weekend without money.)

cool-city

Tired of paying rent & taxes? Are you 1 of 47 million unemployed people who needs a good job? Are you simply tired of struggling? Currently, over 750,000 Americans live rent free… and you can also live the dream.

In less than 5 minutes, our world traveler Azeka Cozi will show how easy it is to find a comfy sweet cottage, penthouses in the Skye, a bedroom with a view of the waves crashing into the rocks and or a green oasis in the mountains. Oh, no money needed if you want to move this weekend.

Azeka is busy busy busy finding the coolest places in the world for people who are tired of paying rent & taxes. Think about it–most people work 40 to 80 hours monthly for a place to live.  Most of the world is enslaved so they can have a place to sleep. If you’re unfortunate and unemployed than a park bench or under a bridge is one of many sad options.

For the past 2 million years, humans lived for free and enjoyed free food. No floatinghuronhouse546mention of rent, taxes or slave debt… not until the Europeans invaded the world and claimed all lands as their own and then charged taxes on occupied free land.  Imagine if someone came into your kitchen and started charging you a tax to cook in your own kitchen?

Azeka is a sustainable activist and she believes that food, shelter, love, air, water, kindness, etc… Must be free. Currently, over 100 tribes worldwide don’t pay: rent, for food, taxes, gas & electric, for cable and I could go on, but, you get the idea. Only unenlightened humans pay for free resources.

 

In a few minutes, I will tell you which cities are the best places to live for free! I will also show you how to get people to contact you and offer you their homes for free and how you will never worry about money AGAIN! Next week, I’ll show you the ‘Top 10 Places Worldwide to Live for Free! (All gifts go towards building free housing with edible organic gardens worldwide.)

Homeless: City Boots Off-Grid Woman Out Of House!

 

robin speronisA Florida woman who is at the center of a legal and political battle over off-grid living is now living in a tent in her backyard after the city kicked her out of her house, Get off Money News has learned.

The city of Cape Coral, Florida, got a warrant and inspected Robin Speronis’ home and then posted a notice to vacate, giving her until Thursday to do so.

Speronis lives off-the-grid and does not use utility water or electricity, and maintains that her house is as sanitary as any home in the neighborhood. Her fight for the right to live self-sustainably has captivated the off-the-grid community.

The Rutherford Institute, a legal group, is representing her in her legal fight.

Speronis tells the news she is essentially moving to tents in her backyard, thanks to help from her neighbors and friends.

“My community has been supporting me and yesterday donated two tents and other supplies to create an outdoor living area in my backyard,” she told Get off Money News via email Wednesday. “I have a six-person tent and a four-person tent. As I have said before, I’ll let The Rutherford Institute do the legal fighting and I’ll do the living with the support of the community. We are all so powerful and we CAN create a beautiful world that no government can take away from us.”

The True Christian Heritage and Christian Ideals That Are Woven Into The Very Fabric Of The Constitution…

Cape Coral uses what is called the International Property Maintenance Code, which the city says requires all residents to be hooked up to on-grid water and electricity. Speronis says she has the right to refuse both.

In February a judge ruled that Speronis must hook up to the city’s water system, although he said she did not have to use city electricity. The city dug up her yard and capped her sewer in March, an action that violated state law. They also took her dogs.

The city’s code enforcement posted the vacate notice over the weekend.

“I am such a threat to the city of Cape Coral that again they’ve had to make me, technically, legally, homeless. I am technically homeless right now,” Speronis told a local station, FOX 4. “They did enter my house. They were very cocky. They were very condescending,” Speronis added.

Speronis is a Christian, and said her faith has sustained her during the tough times.

“The Greek word for church, Ekklesia, means community,” she said. “I am Greek Orthodox. I am now living the truth that I believed when I started my urban off-grid adventure — that is you can’t live off-grid in an urban setting unless you have community — church.

“How appropriate for Holy Week,” she said, referencing the assistance she’s received.

Losing her dogs was tough, and she’s cried a lot over it, Speronis said. She said she felt God telling her not to worry about her dogs and that “special angels” were watching over them.

“Still, I do have to go through the necessary grieving process,” she said.

Her case appears headed to federal court after the Rutherford Institute — a nationally known civil liberties legal organization — got involved in early March. The case could set a precedent for off-the-gridders nationwide.

“The application of these burdensome rules, regulations, and inspection requirements against individuals attempting to live independent and environmentally sustainable lifestyles sends the wrong message: that citizens must be dependent on the state, whether or not they wish to be,” said John W. Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute. “This case is emblematic of a growing problem in America today, namely, that bureaucrats and local governments will go to great lengths to perpetuate dependence and compliance with the nanny state.”

Speronis uses solar panels for electricity and collects rainwater for water. She cooks on a propane stove and keeps clean with a camping shower. She uses an alternative toilet system.

Should the city have removed Speronis from her house? Let us know in the comments below.

How To Build A Home Out Of Shipping Containers And Trash | Radio Show

The average American throws away 60,000 pounds of trash during their lifetime, but one couple has set out to take some of that “stuff” and container_homes01build a home out of it — using shipping containers.

Their names are Ryan and Brooke Naylor, and their home will be built out of re-purposed items found in dumpsters and also out of two shipping containers – the types that cross the ocean each and every day. They’re this week’s guests on Off The Grid Radio.

They’re part of a growing movement that believes reusing and re-purposing items – the stuff we toss in the trash every day – is not only the cheapest way to go but also the right thing to do.

How much will it all cost? Far less than the price of an ordinary house, but the end result will be the same: a comfortable home they love. Listen as they tell us:

  • Why they chose to build a “shipping container home.”
  • Where the best places are to go dumpster diving for construction materials and even furniture.
  • What steps to take to build a similar home.
  • Where they bought their shipping containers.
  • What they’ve found in dumpsters that’s worth thousands.

We all could learn a few lessons from Ryan and Brooke. Listen as they tell us their story.

Underground House Is The Ultimate Off-Grid Home

earth-houseOnce you find the perfect spot of land to enjoy a more self-reliant lifestyle, it is time to start building a home. A traditional brick and mortar home or a modular might be the easiest choices, but several types of unconventional dwellings offer far more opportunities to employ more sustainable and defendable systems on the property.

Earth berm homes utilize the architectural process of using soil against multiple walls to garner thermal mass. The practice reduced heat loss and helps sustain a steady temperature inside the home. Earth berm homes have become a favorite among off-the-grid families because they enhance the ability to use passive solar power, even in colder climates. Although the earth berm homes have become extremely popular in the past decade, they have been around since folks started gathering rocks and logs to craft shelters.

Types of earth berm homes

There are basically three different types of earth berm homes: 1) earth-covered, 2) earth-bunded, and 3) subterranean.

  • An earth-covered home can have soil solely on the roof or be an extension of earth berm dwelling side projects.
  • An earth-bunded home is a dwelling in which a thermal mass element is significantly applied to insulate one or more the sheltered side elevations of the building.
  • A subterranean home is a structure where the vast majority of the home is covered by soil.

Earth berm homes are often built into a hillside or slope, but sometime are constructed after land is excavated and the house is set below ground. In addition to generating thermal mass to help reduce energy consumption and costs, the earthen wall coverings also provide added protection for the home. Earthen homes are often touted as being quitter, the soil against the exterior walls help in reduce outside noise. From a defensive standpoint, the home is reportedly easier to defend when one or more walls, or the roof, are pressed against a hillside or slope.

New Relocation Manual Helps Average Americans Get Out Of Harms Way Before The Coming Crisis

From a fire prevention standpoint, earth berm homes also have distinct advantages. When the homes themselves are built out of storage containers or poured concrete walls, the fire prevention aspect is further enhanced. When designing an earth berm home, concerns regarding lack of light and fire safety should be a top priority during the initial stages of the planning process.

I recently toured an earth berm home in southern Ohio owned by Selena and Randy Yates. Selena and her late husband Frank Pittman built the home about 30 years ago. When Frank was in the process of convincing Selena that an enhanced thermal mass dwelling was the way to, he found an existing earth berm house also located in Vinton County, for her to view. Being an incredibly sweet and giving woman, Selena readily agreed to her husband’s dream home, with one provision – he did not put dirt above her head.

underground earth berm house

Selena and Randy Yates

Although Selena is not claustrophobic, the thought of essentially being buried did not appeal to her at all. Unlike Selena, I am incredibly claustrophobic, and got a bit anxious at the mere thought of touring their home.

My visit had a two-fold purpose: First as research for off-the-grid living home styles, and second because my own husband wants our next home to be an earth berm. I want a shipping container house with an atrium for my tortoises, so we decided upon a combined approach, providing I “survived” being inside Randy and Selena’s house. I was pleasantly surprised about the cozy yet unconfined atmosphere inside the house. The home is earth berm on two sides and built into a hillside. The house once had soil on three sides, but once Nick came along, Selena wanted a clear view of him playing outside in the yard, so the soil covering was removed and an enclosed porch added. The area is still incredibly warm with the back of it still being nestled against the hillside. The heat and humidity inside the enclosed porch make it a perfect place for growing plants, and to take a soak in the hot tub and watch the snow fall.

Randy and Selena recently added a new metal roof to the home, and now wish they had added skylights to the project – and are considering adding them. Randy is a postal carrier by trade, but a local hero by nature. As a member of the all-volunteer fire force which serves the county, he is concerned about an escape if a blaze does break out inside the home. Although earth berms are less of a fire hazard than conventional homes, Randy was quick to point out that if a fire starts and his brethren enter the home with hoses, steam will quickly be created and anyone in the back bedrooms could get scorched quickly, in addition to the smoke inhalation they could already be suffering from.

Doesn’t feel closed-in

The bedrooms pressed against the hillside did not appear dark or confined even though there were no windows in the room. A person who thoroughly enjoys quiet and darkness when going to sleep will likely love having an earth berm bedroom. The kitchen inside the Yates’ home is also part of the earth berm wall of the home, but does not feel dark or closed in, either. The wall which was removed does border the kitchen and dining area, but even before the soil was removed, the large glass double-door entryway likely provided ample light into the cooking and eating area.

The enigmatic Randy had another important word of warning about earth berm home construction: Never put a swimming pool on the level ground behind the home. Several years ago, right after installing a new pool liner, the Yates’ pool collapsed while people were floating around in it cooling off. Water from the pool was able to seep over the concrete walls where the roof adjoins. The couple sustained some water damage, and learned a valuable lesson they wanted to share with others considering building an earth berm home.

The earth berm combination shipping container home my husband Bobby is designing for us is going to make good use of the thermal mass for food growing and preservation purposes. The home plan we worked on for hours and finally agreed upon involves two of the shipping containers being placed against earth berm walls. An expansive pantry, storage room, and workshop will be housed inside parts of the storage containers. One wall of an enclosed porch will also be an earth berm. The room will provide a warm and humid location for my Sulcata tortoises to winter and for year-around crop growing.

I am very excited about following Survival Gardener Rick Austin’s Camouflaged Greenhouse design and sustainable heating plan so we can grow not only crops typically found in our region during summer months, but also so we can add miniature citrus trees and coffee trees, as well. Once we decide upon the perfect piece of land and start creating our new home.

How to Start Your Own Country!

HOW-TO-START-YOUR-OWN-COUNTRY2.jpg_rgb

How to Start Your Own Country in Four Easy Steps

With Kosovo unilaterally declaring independence and a host of wannabe states looking to follow its lead, you might be thinking it’s about time to set up your own country. You’ve picked out a flag, written a national anthem, even printed up money with your face on it. But what’s the next step? Creating a new country isn’t as easy as you think.

Step 1: Make sure you are eligible

As tempting as it might be to declare your cubicle a sovereign state, customary international law actually does specify minimum standards for statehood.

 

You must have a defined territory. You must have a permanent population. You must have a government. Your government must be capable of interacting with other states. (This one is somewhat controversial. It was included as a qualification in the 1933 Montevideo Convention, which established the United States good neighbor policy of nonintervention in Latin America, but is generally not recognized as international law.)

 

Step 2: Declare independence

Congratulations on joining the ranks of Transnistria, Somaliland, and a host of other countries that won’t be marching at the Olympics anytime soon. Just because you’ve met the qualifications and declared yourself independent doesn’t mean that you’re going to be taken seriously. Even the Principality of Sealand located on a 10,000-square-foot platform in the North Sea has tried with mixed success to claim sovereignty under these qualifications.

 

However, now that your state is established, there are certain benefits you can expect, even if you’re not recognized by anyone. Once an entity has established itself as a de facto state, it will benefit from territorial integrity and certain guarantees of sovereignty, says Stefan Talmon, professor of public international law at OxfordUniversity and author of Recognition in International Law. For instance, now that Kosovo is established as a state, Serbia can no longer freely attack it to bring it back into Serbia. It benefits from the prohibition of the use of force under the U.N. Charter. These rules were established during the Cold War to protect new states that were not yet recognized by one bloc or another.

Step 3: Get recognized

There’s not much point in having your own country unless other countries acknowledge your existence. International recognition is what gives a country legitimacy in the international community and what ultimately distinguishes the New Zealand‘s of the world from the Nagorno-Karabakh’s. Naturally, though, the established countries are going to take some convincing. Recognition is quite complicated because it combines international law and international politics, Talmon says. Some people say that recognition is a purely political act. It is at the discretion of existing states whether they recognize, so there is no right to recognition.

This was especially true during the Cold War, when the national legitimacy of North and South Vietnam, North and South Korea, and East and West Germany depended on which side you asked. Even today, a number of entities are recognized as states by some countries, but not by others. Palestine, Taiwan, and Northern Cyprus fall into this category.

 

The United States has no official policy on what is required for recognition, according to its State Department. Instead, the decision to recognize a state is made by the president. Then the president decides whether to establish diplomatic relations with the state based on U.S. national interests. There’s no cookie-cutter approach, so when you ask for recognition, be sure to explain how your independence will be good for America. In the old days, proving your anti-communist creed was usually good enough. Today, U.S. strategic priorities are a bit more complex, though as Kosovo proves, ticking off the Russians still helps.

 

Step 4: Join the club

Since its founding in 1945, membership in the United Nations has become the gold standard of international legitimacy. When you are admitted to the U.N, that’s a form of approval, Talmon says. Its like a stamp [that says] you are now a full member of the international community.

 

Applying for U.N. membership is a breeze. According to U.N. rules, all you need to do is write a letter to the secretary-general requesting membership. These letters are remarkably short and simple. For a handy template, check out the successful application of Montenegro, the United Nations most recent member.

You can mail your application to:

Ban Ki-moon
Secretary-General
The
United Nations
First Ave.
at 46th St.
New York, NY10017

 

Now comes the hard part. The Security Council must refer you to the General Assembly, which must determine by a two-thirds majority that you are a peace-loving state that can carry out the duties of the U.N. Charter.

It’s probably not even worth trying this unless you’ve completed step 3. A number of unrecognized states have applied for U.N. recognition over the years, including American-Indian tribes, but without the credibility bestowed by bilateral recognition; these applications are usually just filed away.

 

The biggest obstacle to U.N. membership is power politics. Neither North nor South Korea got U.N. membership until 1991 because of vetoes by one bloc or another during the Cold War. Even today, Russians veto on the Security Council will probably prevent Kosovo from gaining a seat at the table anytime soon. The Republic of China, a.k.a. Taiwan, was one of the founding members of the United Nations and once had a permanent seat on the Security Council. But Taiwan was booted out in favor of the Peoples Republic of China in 1971, after U.S. President Richard Nixon decided to cozy up to Beijing. The Taiwanese government has applied for membership every year since 1993, but to no avail. The United Nations didn’t even bother to open Taiwan‘s most recent letter.

 

As you can see, the point at which a territory officially becomes a country is very much in the eyes of the beholder. International recognition can be an elusive prize. The good news? The longer you wait, the better your chances become. In international law, which is often based on custom, the longer you can maintain your de facto sovereignty, the more likely you are to be accepted. (Unless, of course, you’re Taiwan.)

 

The strength of Kosovo’s bid for independence from Serbia is based largely on the fact that it has, for all intents and purposes, been independent for almost a decade. In a more extreme example, the 900-year-old Sovereign Order of Malta has diplomatic relations with 100 countries and observer status at the United Nations even though its entire territory is contained in a few buildings in Rome. So don’t be discouraged. Starting your own country isn’t impossible. It’s just going to require a lot of patience and the right friends.

The 10 Best Micro Home Builders! How to Live without a Mortgage!

L41home-modern-tiny-house

The popularity of the tiny house movement has led to so many good new small home designers and builders that it’s difficult to keep track of them all. We know that making a list inevitably means we’ll leave some great companies out but, nevertheless, we wanted to highlight some of the small house companies we’ve covered on Apartment Therapy, ranging from modern to traditional, prefab to custom built.

 

  • 5093fe7ddbd0cb033500052b._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company: Around 1997, Jay Schafer began pioneering the art of building and living in small spaces—”low-impact architecture,” as he calls it. All of the houses are finely crafted and designed to be used as a home or a weekend escape, and prices start at $38,000 for the smallest home.
  • 50940b3cdbd0cb035800064c._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Weehouse / Alchemy Architects: Minnesota’s Alchemy Architects are the makers of the modular prefab weeHouse, a modern home that averages around $150 per square foot (some models are more, others are less). Homes can be fitted with solar panels and off-the-grid energy kits.
  • 50940b3ed9127e2f160005cf._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Clayton Homes i-house: Warren Buffet’s modular housing business, Clayton Homes, launched the i-house in 2009. It’s a prefab model that starts at 723 square feet for around $75,000 and includes a number of standard green features, such as Energy Star appliances.
  • 50940b3fdbd0cb034f0005fd._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Metroship: David Ballinger, the creator and designer of the MetroShed has spun off his latest project with a similar modern aesthetic and focus BUT this one floats — it’s the MetroShip Houseboat. The prefab luxury house boat starts at a base price of $239,000.
  • 50940b41d9127e2f21000582._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Rocio Romero: Missouri-based designer Rocio Romero is well known for her minimalist prefab homes, which arrive flat-packed and can go up in a few months’ time. Prices for the standard “LV Home” average about $120-$195/square foot including shipping, foundation, and finishing costs.
  • 50940b42dbd0cb035800064d._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Little House on the Trailer: Stephen Marshall designs and builds tiny homes on top of a flatbed trailer, then rolls them out to his client’s site. Marshall custom designs each space and offers three types of structures up to 400 square feet: dwellings complete with kitchen and bath, offices, and art galleries. Prices range from $45,000 to $65,000.
  • 50940b44d9127e2f160005d0._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Katrina Cottages: After Hurricane Katrina devastated America’s Gulf coast in 2005, architect Marianne Cusato designed and developed one of the most popular low-cost emergency shelters: the 308 sf Katrina Cottage, available now in over twenty-five different versions and sizes. The company sells plans (beginning around $700) for the homes.
  • 5093ecbcd9127e2f160003f5._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Pacific Yurts: Based on traditional yurts constructed by Central Asian nomads for centuries, yurts are round and can be erected in hours. While a platform is necessary, a standard 12′ yurt will run you $3,950 and you can increase the size (up to 30′) and the extras (like windows, doors, insulation, etc.) to suit your comfort.
  • 50940b45dbd0cb034f0005fe._w.94_h.71_s.centercrop_ Tiny Texas Houses: Builder Brad Kittel makes these Texas “Tiny Houses” from 95% recycled materials. Unlike modern prefab mini-homes, each one is unique and reflects the style of its salvaged parts. Prices range from $42,000 to $155,000 depending on size.

25 Cheapest Places to Live in the World!

 

When the words cheap and inexpensive are thrown around, people may be a bit skeptical as to what they are applied to. You know what they say – “you get what you pay for”. While this is normally a justified position, price does not necessarily imply quality. This is especially true when it comes to choosing a place to live.  There are a great number of variables that goes into calculating the value of a place;  from a city’s policies to a city’s urban design.  These variables make delineating value from a city a little complex.  However, thanks to the Economist’s Intelligence Unit report, there is a list available ranking the top 25 of the world’s cheapest places to live.  Now the question is, would you live in any of these places?
25

Kiev, Ukraine

 

kiev
As Eastern Europe’s crucial center for industrial, educational, scientific and cultural development; Kiev boasts of a diverse means of economic sustenance since it doesn’t depend on just one industry. Although it is a middle income city and poverty is evident in other parts of the country; Kiev virtually has nonexistent slums which is pretty good for such an inexpensive place to live.

 

24

Bogota, Colombia

colombia
Bogotá is the most populous city in Colombia with 7,363,782 inhabitants as of 2010. Because of its numerous universities and libraries, Bogota became known as “The Athens of South America”. Other than that, it is also one of Latin America’s industrial centers. Because of it’s successful fight against its crime riddled image in the 90′s, multinational companies have built their regional operations here over the years.
23

Santiago, Chile

chile
Formally called Santiago de Chile, this is the industrial and financial seat of the country. It is located in the country’s central valley at an elevation of 520 m (1,706.04 ft) above mean sea level.  Founded in 1541, Santiago has been the capital city of Chile since colonial times. Moreover, because of its steady economic growth over the past few decades, Santiago has been transformed into a modern metropolis. Consequently, Santiago  is now home to theater and restaurant scenes; extensive suburban developments; shopping centers; and a rising skyline which includes the tallest building in Latin America; the Gran Torre Santiago.

 

22

Johannesburg, South Africa

johan
One of the 50 biggest metropolitan areas in the world, Joeys as it is sometimes called is a huge source for the gold and diamond trade, and is one of the world’s leading financial centers. Strangely enough, however, the cost of living is relatively low compared to other similar cities.

 

21

Mexico City, Mexico

city
Ciudad de Mexico or Mexico D.F.is a federal entity and not part of the 31 Mexican states belonging to the federation. Over time, this important financial center has evolved from a colonial territory of the Spanish empire to an independent and world class city. It still maintains it’s low cost of living, however, and if you can get past the crowds and smog you may find your wallet is a bit heavier here.

 

20

Vilnius, Lithuania

 

other-city
Located in the southeast of Lithuania, Vilnius is the capital city and  is one of the European capitals of culture with a population of  535,091. Vilnius is considered a Gamma global city and it’s known for its old town beautiful architecture.  Also, solar and laser technology manufacturing centers have set up shop here and in spite of its relatively low cost of living it is still an economically competitive city.

 

19

Lima, Peru

 

lima
Formerly known as Ciudad de los Reyes, Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru. It is home to one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the world, the National University of San Marcos which was founded on May 12, 1551. The city leads in the economic development of the country due to the readily available and quality workforce and cheap infrastructure.

 

18

Nairobi, Kenya

 

nairobi

Allan Savory: How to green the desert and reverse climate change. (Staff #1 Pick)

“Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And it’s happening to about two-thirds of the world’s grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes — and his work so far shows — that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

Allan Savory works to promote holistic management in the grasslands of the world.

Build a $300 underground greenhouse for year-round gardening (Video)

© Neo-farms

Growers in colder climates often utilize various approaches to extend the growing season or to give their crops a boost, whether it’s coldframes, hoop houses or greenhouses.

Greenhouses are usually glazed structures, but are typically expensive to construct and heat throughout the winter. A much more affordable and effective alternative to glass greenhouses is the walipini (an Aymara Indian word for a “place of warmth”), also known as an underground or pit greenhouse. First developed over 20 years ago for the cold mountainous regions of South America, this method allows growers to maintain a productive garden year-round, even in the coldest of climates.

Here’s a video tour of a walipini that even incorporates a bit of interior space for goats:

It’s a pretty intriguing set-up that combines the principles of passive solar heating with earth-sheltered building. But how to make one?From American sustainable agriculture non-profit Benson Institute comes this enlightening manual on how a walipini works, and how to build it:

The Walipini utilizes nature’s resources to provide a warm, stable, well-lit environment for year-round vegetable production. Locating the growing area 6’- 8’ underground and capturing and storing daytime solar radiation are the most important principles in building a successful Walipini.

The Walipini, in simplest terms, is a rectangular hole in the ground 6 ‛ to 8’ deep covered by plastic sheeting. The longest area of the rectangle faces the winter sun — to the north in the Southern Hemisphere and to the south in the Northern Hemisphere. A thick wall of rammed earth at the back of the building and a much lower wall at the front provide the needed angle for the plastic sheet roof. This roof seals the hole, provides an insulating airspace between the two layers of plastic (a sheet on the top and another on the bottom of the roof/poles) and allows the sun’s rays to penetrate creating a warm, stable environment for plant growth.

This earth-sheltered greenhouse taps into the thermal mass of the earth, so that much less energy is needed to heat up the walipini’s interior than an aboveground greenhouse. Of course, there are precautions to take in waterproofing, drainage and ventilating the walipini, while aligning it properly to the sun — which the manual covers in detail.

Best of all, according to the Benson Institute, their 20-foot by 74-foot walipni field model out in La Paz cost around $250 to $300 only, thanks to the use of free labour provided by owners and neighbours, and the use of cheaper materials like plastic ultraviolet (UV) protective sheeting and PVC piping.

Cheap but effective, the underground greenhouse is a great way for growers to produce food year-round in colder climates. More over at the Benson Institute and the Pure Energy Systems Wiki.
