how do you guys feel about the offgrid movement? i think trying to be self sustaining is good, but a lot of off grid people tend to be super conservative religious people for some reason>
As industrial society runs up against martial constraints (and the capitalist elites extract more and more from society) the off-grid simplification will become an increasingly attractive way of life IMO.
It's certainly popular with the individualist right-wing nutters atm, but as it becomes more if a necessity and less if a lifestyle choice, I think we'll see that the best way to "prep" for collapse is not a well stocked bunker but a strong community.>
But you will likely be sharing the community with non solarpunk wingnuts?

Is that a problem for you?

I guess this must be an American phenomenon; here in Europe the back-to-the land types are all (left) anarchists and hippies.

The single most important thing for a community is that it's members get along. If you want to be in a community with like-minded people, you have to seek them out and start your own community.>
i haven't been updating myself on these events, what's up with the off-grid movement? can i get some context like what's been going on so far? on top of that are there any sites/forums/communities that discuss such movement like for example https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/? i find these things really fascinating, thinking of getting a solar panel or making a relatively tiny wind turbine and maybe charge my powerbank or some mobile devices>
You can get along with non solarpunk wingnuts?
