“Camping” on Your Own Land is Now Illegal — Gov’t Waging War on Off-Grid Living

Across the U.S., local zoning officials are making it increasingly difficult for people to go off the grid, in some instances threatening people with jail time for collecting rainwater or not hooking into local utilities.

The fact that people are not burying their oppressors is indicative of lack of will to defend their own rights...capitulation is a bitch.....

"Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes:
At what exact point, then should one resist the communists? ... How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. ... The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers ... and notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt."


People gotta find their OWN courage, their own spine....until then they will have to LIVE their own regret..

Does anyone really own their land? Stop paying taxes and see how long the benevolent government lets you keep it and how long it takes to get you thrown into a rape cage.

Why would an off the grid homesteader choose a county where they need a permission slip, good for only 90 days, to engage in homesteading activities?

This is the total opposite of people who asked L.A. County for building permits 30 years ago, were told they didn't need permits, and now the county wants to arrest them and bulldoze their homes.

Yep. With "rules" and "laws" like this, there IS no Rule of Law.
So. Time for you and the neighbors to share in the purchase of a fair sized backhoe, and start to make them there pesky gubberment agents start disappearing whenever they show up on your property.

there is more than one way to skin a cat, I am in the process of finishing my new home, A home that is both on and off grid. I have conventional AC wiring, parallel with wiring for low voltage DC. all my lighting is DC as well as special outlets for devices modified to operate on low voltage DC. When the electrical inspector quizzed me about it I replied " it for 24 Volts DC ( which is not covered under the National Electrical code, 30 volts and above is). after passing my C.O. I proceeded to "up grade" my system to 48 volts ( which has numerous advantages over 12 and 24 volts). My system will have solar panels and a battery band. It will also have a high power inverter for the refrigerator and possibly a freezer, those being the only two devices requiring AC power.I cook and heat with gas, and I have a under floor heating system with a 50 gallon gas water heater, and a DC pump. If you plan it right you can do it. I will be able to go weeks with out grid power, longer if we can eliminate the refrigerator...

The hook-ups are a means to tax and make you "pay your fair share." That said, Dr. D makes great points.

Give them their hook-ups and use them only minimally. If it is a code-compliant home, and you pay your modest bill, you can live under their watchful and curious eye.

The problem some southern Californians had /have is that getting utilities to their properties is majorly expensive, and "anyone" cna anonymously complain about property appearance. No one in gubermint has to provide the name of the so-called complainant.

The imbalance comes in the elections of supervisors, where large counties can overpower relatively few residents in such votes. It's hard to vote the bastards out when so many other voters know nothing and car less.
