Is Being Self-Sufficient A Threat To Society?


This article was originally published at The Daily Sheeple

For decades, Eustace Conway has lived an independent, sustainable life, building shelter for himself on his land, growing his own food, setting up outhouse facilities, composting, and allowing others to learn these methods first-hand so that we may once again have a populous versed in the healthy manner of primitive survival skills.

After a preliminary visit from the local Planning & Inspections department, several independent local government agencies together performed a raid on Mr. Conway’s property, and now the Watauga County Health Department has ordered a cease & desist on Mr. Conway’s educational activities, and the Planning & Inspections Department has cited many “violations” on the property, as well as ordered that Eustace Conway bring his structures up to code, or demolish the structures on his own property. Some of the code citations include using unmarked lumber for his constructions (structures are made from cut-down trees without grading system indicators), and requirements for permits, plumbing, and wiring for any structure. Some of the structures cited requiring permits, wiring, and/or plumbing installation include a “roofed-over platform,” a doghouse (shown in video), and a tree house (shown in video).

Clearly, that which is law in today’s society radically contradicts Mr. Conway’s entire way of living. The situation illustrates the fact that a central-planning society is incompatible with individual freedom, personal choice, self-sufficiency, and individuality, concepts upon which this country was founded.






  1. I say Eustace should get the support that Phil Robertson received. Bring enough of a public outcry to this situation and maybe the local socialist government will back down.

  2. I have seen Eustace Conway on the Mountain Man series.
    I cannot see where this man is a threat to anyone I have
    read where the county where his land is & where he resisides
    is of great interest because they want to run off Mr. Conway
    & put in big condos, vacation villas, homes or golf courses.
    All or any of such things would mean lots of revenue for
    that county & state of NC!! Shame on all of them!!

  3. This is a story about a petty bureaucrat who launched a vendetta against a citizen because the citizen insulted his ego or standing as a petty bureaucrat. I bet if this had happened 200 years ago,the bureaucrat would have been tared and feathered.

  4. Free men are a threat to control freak tyranny monsters.
    Thye just cant STAND IT when one of the slaves break
    free and start to live as God intended, Free and Independent.
    The fact is, ALL of us are supposed to be living like Eustace,
    we are supposed OWN our property with no way of losing it
    through taxes or anything else. We are supposed to KEEP and
    enjoy the majority of our Labor(Wages) and we are supposed to
    not be told how to live or have ANY of our rights molested, as
    long as we arent harming anyone else. But we have slowly
    fallen for their schemes and cons and given them everything.
    Just say no, and live as a free man would. Or they will
    take what little we have left. Its time we all stop being
    cowards and take what is our. Our rights are our property
    and we given to us by God and protected in our Bill of Rights.
