TVP Intermission #16: Levels of Dependency in Conventional Lifestyles

On this episode of The Vonu Podcast, Shane and Kyle come to you with another intermission episode. They return to the vonu publication,  Self-Liberation Notes, to discuss an article by Jim Stumm titled, “Levels of Dependency in Conventional Lifestyles.”

Herein, Jim goes through three fairly conventional lifestyles whose features add up to a person being:

  1. Completely Dependent
  2. Semi-Independent
  3. Independent

For each of these, he discusses the dependency relied upon for shelter, food, expenses, waste processing, employment/income, and more, with each level covered getting closer to complete independence in conventional lifestyles (i.e. off-grid homesteading).

Throughout the duration of this episode, keep these three questions in mind and attempt to answer them:

  1. Where does my current lifestyle fit in with the possibilities?
  2. Am I happy/satisfied with where I’m at?
  3. If not, what can I do to move towards a more independent lifestyle?
