Living away from civilization

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

I have heard already many times from various people that they have enough of this crazy world in which we are literally slaves to the system and they would like to get themselves a house somewhere far away from civilization and live peacefully there. And those who don't have a lot of money they would consider to live in a cave or make themselves wooden house for free.

Personally I comprehend these people and I know that if we forced people to leave their cities and live in the nature for a period of few weeks then they would realize that living in the cities in constant stress and being slave to the money system is really crazy and then more people would actually leave the cities and live somewhere in the nature. And this would be really good for the whole humanity. Though there is very important point here to realize that this would be good for us only if this decision was taken not from the starting point of running away but rather what is best for all.

You'll see... these people that I have mentioned in the very beginning of my article want to run away from the system, hide somewhere in the beautiful "unspoiled" place in nature and live peacefully there to the end of their days. But they don't realize one thing. They have no guarantee whatsoever that that they will actually be fortunate to live in peace all the time.

Why ?

Well... this very system that they are trying to hide away from is abusive in nature and it does not respect life at all. And so it may happen that one day somebody decides to cut down the forest in which you are living in because s/he will decide to build a new road or expand the city.

And what will you do then ?

To be continued...
