16 year old builds tiny home to guarantee mortgage free future
Grant J. Kidney — There are now more foreclosed homes in America than there are homeless people. Figure that one out. As the greedy oligarchs high atop the artificial social darwinian ladder continue to feed off of the sustenance of the American people, little children are going to bed starving tonight in a country with so much wealth that if divided up equally among the world’s people, could feed, clothe, and shelter the whole of the human family.
Every person born on to this planet is deserving of the fundamental basics that assure survival. Shelter is by no means excluded from the range of critical human need. If one is opposed to such philosophical ground work, they are thus opposed to the notion of civilization outright. Rather than supporting the intelligent management of society, these anti-human, ‘cut them loose’ folk are really doing nothing more than rooting for the collapse of all meaningful structures in the world so as to fulfill a sick, dark appetite for mayhem and destruction.
We can push political theory all we want, but the truth of the matter is that at the end of the day, millions will fall asleep tonight housed in nothing more than just a cardboard box. With virtually no help coming from the thieves in Washington, and with big banks kicking folks out of their homes left and right, it would seem that the cavalry isn’t coming. In other words, those of us most affected by the downturn of the American economy must develop some strategy to pull ourselves up by our own boot-straps and to hence get our lives back on track.
Innovation to counter austere times ahead
Sometimes the most innovative members of the species just so happen to be but only 16 years of age. In the following video clip, high school student Austin Hay shows off an impressive little home that he built all by himself. The house is only 130 square feet, but Austin is guaranteed a mortgage-free future… if of course he intends to remain cooped up in his little shelter for the rest of his life.
Austin is on to something. Perhaps a good many of those booted from their homes in the wake of the economic collapse have forgotten just how easy it is to build a house big enough to provide shelter from the elements. If Austin were to rig a couple of solar panels up to his house and plant a small garden near by, he could become totally self sufficient and free from the grid outright. Sort of like this guy below.
So let’s just get something straight. We have all become so dependent upon a system that is really way too big for its own good. Instead of growing our food, we buy it from grocery stores. Instead of generating our own power, we pay electric companies to deliver it to us. This all sounds well and good, but what happens when the foundations of the system we rely so heavily upon destabilize? To answer this question, just visit the local welfare office or the now jam packed soup kitchens across the United States.
What we all need to do is begin to study simple home building, gardening, and other such practical pursuits so as to be able to effectively counter the harsh, austere times up ahead. If 100 million Americans built their own homes, generated their own power, and grew their own food, they would have effectively rendered the mini Hitler’s in Washington and on Wall Street absolutely powerless since ‘power’ is contingent upon the control of people and their most basic of needs.
