so just wanted to open a discuss on everyone's opinion about their personal decision whether to try to deindustrialize one's own way of living throughout or their life or if they plan on staying at thier current level of participation in the system to communicate to the collective conciousness for a sudden and total change to 'our preferred ends' if that's not too groupy of way to put it
I'll probably always stay on the internet; it is too valuable to disregard or discard. A connection to infinite information and knowledge. Although, I suppose it can be argued whether or not the information would be useful. I'd say so; medical and scientific knowledge is always evolving.
I think personal deindustrialization is important. (I love that term, "personal deindustrialization", did you come up with that?).
"It is necessary to develop and propagate an ideology that opposes technology and the industrial system." -ISAIF, 166
I feel like part of propagating an anti-tech ideology is to set a good example for others, and show that its possible to give up tech. Hopefully it will also force us to learn low-tech practical skills to replace our tech crutches.
Personally, I'm trying to roll-back the tech I use. I figure my smartphone is the newest tech I'm currently using, so I'm keeping a notebook where I stop and write down why I need to use it every time I do. Then I can try and find older alternatives or otherwise change my behaviour so I won't need it.
I also deleted my Facebook, but mostly because it was eating-up too much of my mental bandwidth
We need to use tech minimally and strategically, for sure.
A lot of social media provides more distraction than useful information or morale boosters, and you should tailor your access to suit these ends. But being present on the Internet, in order to spread ideas that will help people, is not in itself a bad thing. It should just be purposeful and wholesome.
You should try to participate in your local economy, buying things that were produced locally, and producing and selling whatever you can in turn.
"Collapse now, avoid the rush," as John Michael Greer suggests. Live as if the system is on the brink of collapse in order to grow more resilient and independent. Try to join a local community which is as self-sufficient as possible and help it to grow stronger.
