Leading up to the 2016 election, many people worried about the future implications of a Hillary Clinton presidency. Under Crooked Hillary, we were destined to find ourselves in a post-apocalyptic situation. The writing was on the wall and we knew it was only a matter of time before the federal government developed into a tyranny and we had to fight back against the powers that be. The collapse was on the horizon and we felt the pressure to prepare ourselves for the worst.
Then Donald Trump won in an upset victory and everything changed. It became immediately clear that our fears of having our freedoms stripped from us were somewhat exaggerated — but just because we no longer have to worry about a Clinton tyranny doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to fear.
With Donald Trump as the president-elect of the United States, we now have to be concerned about both leftist revolt and the potential of World War III. Though this may sound like an irrational fear, however history has proven that it isn’t. As soon as the American people get a little too comfortable, tragedy is sure to strike.
That is the mindset that a number of New Mexico residents have and they’re putting their concerns into action — in the form of an off-the-grid society that doesn’t rely on the federal government in any way.
Tricia Drevets of Off the Grid News reports, “Rising out of the high desert landscape of New Mexico are dozens of futuristic-looking homes that are part of an ongoing experiment in off-the-grid living. Some of the 70-plus home are almost buried in the earth, and some rise a story or two above it. Some are tiny one-room dwellings, and others are designed to shelter and to feed a family of four. All of these so-called ‘earthships’ require no electrical grid, no water lines and no sewer systems.”
Everyone in America should follow suit and start preparing for the worst. We should all be self-reliant and not need the government, the powers that be or the outside world to help us survive. Human beings have been able to survive on their own throughout our history and that should not have changed in the modern era. While moving your entire life off the grid takes time and money, it is never too early to start. In the end, our lives could depend on it and that is all that really matters.
