Lasqueti: The Land Dedicated To “Off-Grid” Living

Find out what it really means to live off-the-grid
Lasqueti’s way of life will make you feel like you are stepping back in time.

Many would like to keep this island a trade secret.  They like it that way.There is little to no industry.  Bartering exists & money is not necessary.
There is one pub, one cafe and what is known as “The Free Store.”
The untapped beauty of Lasqueti – lush forests & rippling waters – actually betray the hard, dedicated work that is required for someone to live here.
Residents of Lasqueti have seen many come and go.

The locals say that the majority of people who set their sights on living the free “off-grid” style of life, fail.   Most don’t have the skill set required to survive, so they pack up and leave.
Residents claim that only around 30-40% of people will actually adapt & adjust to Lasqueti.
The engineering of homes in Lasqueti is so impressive that you have to see them to believe it.
One in particular known to locals as the “Earth Ship” will blow you away – turn to the “Electrical power in the conventional sense, would destroy their way of life” – therefore residents of Lasqueti harness solar, wind and, where available, water energy to generate what little power they need.
But the Island is defined, even more, by the colorful cast of character’s all sharing the same mindset.  Like, Al Gainesbower (you’ll see him in the video) who was an engineer in the year 1989, but when he asked his boss if he could have the summer off and his boss said no, Al packed up his things and headed to Lasqueti.
And at 83 years old – He looks good!

 

The Difference Between How Capitalists And Socialists Think

From: Right Wing News

Feb, 2016 by

Pay attention to this, because as Monday’s Iowa caucus on the Democrat side shows there are an awful lot of people whose brains are poisoned with Marxist thinking – and American culture and education are rapidly descending into a socialist point of view from which only disaster can result. When Bernie Sanders gets 70 percent of the youth vote in the Democrat Iowa caucus, it’s a problem.

Here’s the meme…

Capitalist Socialist

This issue is not a new one. Here was Margaret Thatcher, taking questions in the British Parliament on this precise topic some 26 years ago. At the end of her time as prime minister, she caught a question from a socialist MP from the Labor Party about the increasing gap between rich and poor. And knocked it straight out of the park…

Another way to describe this phenomenon is as follows – the rich, generally speaking, will always make money. They’re rich, in large measure, because they have the skill of moneymaking – either they know how to invest money wisely, they ply a lucrative trade, they own assets which turn out large amounts of revenue, or what have you.

And no matter how awful the economy might be, they will continue to do well. If society collapses and we descend into something out of the Mad Max movies, there will be some enterprising opportunist who will find a water well or an oil derrick somewhere, defend it with guns and make a comfortable living selling his water or oil to those passing by.

For the rest of us, who don’t have great skill in accumulating wealth, it is necessary for a vibrant, growing economy to exist so that we might get ahead. Some of us might become rich off the bountiful opportunities that economy provides, while more of us might become middle and upper-middle class. Others may never acquire the skills or resources to achieve social mobility and better themselves – but that is even more true in a moribund socialistic economy than it is in a vibrant, growing capitalist one.

And history shows that the vibrant, growing capitalist economy is the one in which people volunteer their time and money toward helping those less fortunate. The generation of surplus – whether in goods, services or money – is the key to advancing the cause of the poor. And in a comfortable society the voluntary sharing of that surplus, combined with the conditions of incentive making the sharing of that surplus a good investment – meaning that those helping the less fortunate aren’t just giving a man a fish but insisting on teaching him to fish – is what makes for fewer poor and less of them.

That is a just and honorable society, and not one based in envy.

So the real question is, do you favor the forced redistribution of wealth from those who have the skills and resources to improve their lot to those who lack those skills or their application, or don’t you? If you do, you’re a socialist and you’re part of the problem.
