I ran across this documentary today, and though I can’t say I identify with every person in it, and I don’t necessarily think the government is deliberately creating fear and demanding that we buy more stuff for some evil purpose, I do identify with those in this piece that value their freedom enough to learn to live with less in order to enjoy it.
I recognize that everyone has different dreams and that sometimes practicality wins over any dreams at all. But I don’t think a person should give up on the dream, and in the end that’s what this documentary is all about.
It’s 50 minutes, and for me the best parts were scattered throughout. If you’ve got the time, watch. And then think about what stuff you would be willing to live without if you could trade all your stuff for the ability to do what you love every day.
Even if what you love doesn’t include living in a van off the grid in the wilderness.
