    One thought on “Surviving Off Off-Grid: Decolonizing the Industrial Mind”

    1. For years, I have thought that there is something wrong with the world I live in After reading this book, I now know what it is We are all too comfortable, living in an unsustainable environment A perfect example of this is the Northeast that is recovering from the Hurricane that just went through the area I have seen on TV people ranting about a government that is not doing enough to help out in this situation If even a percentage of the people living in the area were living as this book outlin [...]

    2. This book is not a how to book It s of a why to book It explains why you should look at living off off grid with just a little bit of how to thrown in I thoroughly enjoyed this book even though I was already convinced of the benefits of living off off grid There s a lot of good information in there Also, I know that some reviews have been critical of the amount of religious talk in the book However, being a Christian, I really appreciated his references to Scripture throughout.

    3. Picked this book up without blinking, thinking it was just another survivalist how to Instead, this book revolutionized my thinking on success, prosperity, what I own, my views on our world, my job and even changed my views of my faith This is an amazing book of the philosophy of living off off grid beyond conventional survivalist ideas It is a genuinely fantastic read.

    4. One of the most profound and thought provoking books I have ever read, Surviving Off Off Grid became an instant favorite and reference book Once I d read the authors reasons for becoming independent in living a life of true freedom, I was compelled to look deeper into my own life.I didn t like what I found.Most of my family wife, older children who own Nooks now have a copy of this book and we re reading it together Changes for the better have already occurred in the way we shop, the way we eat [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book It is nota how to book but rather a how to think book Although I am not ready to embrace this lifestyle philosophy fully, I already do many of the things the author talks about and I can understand the reasoning behind his beliefs.

    6. This is a challenging book to review No doubt because even the author expressed that it was difficult to write since he was trying to synthesize so many purposes into one piece of writing Let me start by stating that I agree with many if not most of Bunker s ideas I agree that the current system of industrialism consumerism agribusiness is fatally flawed and something must be done for the sake of us and our children I agree as a Christian that there is an imperative for us to practice benevolent [...]

    7. You ve probably read plenty of books that tell you how to survive off the grid This book doesn t have a misprint in the title It teaches you why you should be getting on with surviving off off grid In other words, a whole lot less dependant Off grid living focuses on such things as using technology to produce electricity perhaps wind or photovoltaic cells Off off grid living would pose the question How can I thrive without electricity This book doesn t describe the backwoodsman skills you might [...]

    8. Read this book with a grain of salt I enjoyed it a lot and learned a ton, but this guy is way over the top when it comes to his view of man s use of electricity He believes it is pretty much evil, that city life is sinful, and that all civilzations who depend on electricity are doomed to the same fate as Rome.I don t agree Obviously, man has been able to learn, grow,share and advance in so many ways because of electricity It is a blessing or a curse dpending on how it is employed However, I do a [...]

    9. It s all fun and games until someone starts quoting the Bible Ok, so I m not anti Bible quoting per se, it s just definitely not what I was hoping for from this book I was even pretty interested in some of the philosophy underlying why one might want to shift to on off grid lifestyle the double negative kind of killed me The advent of specialization fractured the mind and caused man to focus on pieces of the puzzle instead of the whole picture The urbanite doesn t allow himself to be concerned w [...]

    10. Better than the average book on being prepared First third of the book is philosophy of why be prepared, why be in community and concerns with being dependent on the government Last two thirds of the book is of a how to BE prepared.The last chapter and the appendix were of who Michael Bunker IS as a Christian separatist of which I suppose I am almost the opposite as a follower of Jesus Nevertheless, his writing is compelling and informing also challenging as to be aware and awake in these days [...]

    11. I have no idea how to rate this book, because the thought provoking things he had to say about our dependency on electricity, petroleum, the consumer economy, and the state in general were tempered by some blatant anti Catholicism Ignoring the anti Catholic bits the rest of the discussion in the book was challenging and echoes many of the same sentiments expressed by the Catholic Land Movement, in addition to providing some useful information about living on the land without being too dependent [...]

    12. Interesting book that is not easy to read.Many rock solid ideas seem hampered by a defensive delivery that reads like a draft than a final edit.At one spot Bunker outlines if he were to homestead again what he would do differently what improvements he d make Perhaps the book is like his homestead and would reach out and touch a reader better if rewritten today As an exploration of some of the reasons Agrarian living s merits should be a consideration in how we plan our lives the book s holds a [...]

    13. From the introduction, where he conveniently twists history to take cheap shots at Catholicism, you know you re dealing with someone with deeply held anti Catholic prejudice some have called anti Catholicism the last socially acceptable bias, so this might not bother a lot of people I agree with the idea that things as they are are unsustainable, but I don t see the good in hammering HIS personal interpretations of Holy Scriptures and HIS criteria for Christianity into reader s faces just to get [...]

    14. Real enlightening Worth the read Sort of a practical yet philosophical handbook on how to decolonize our overly conditioned minds I m guessing I ll be referring to it whenever a related question comes up along the way Folksy writing And practical information.

    15. Good intro Terrible executionI was planning on writing a full length review, but after a couple of days after finishing the book I decided not to Let s summarize with Prepper Amish meets Christian Pastor I skimmed it half of it Read at your own risk.
