Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

Ben Stewart and Dan Stewart, creators of Esoteric Agenda and Kymatica, focus the essence of this film around the journey through transitional and groundbreaking moments in a human’s life.
At a major juncture in his life, rob in the pagé family began down a road less traveled to free himself from fear, government control, and reliance on public energy and food supply, and shares his journey that led him off the grid.

The purpose of this film is not to provide legal advice, nor is it to simply educate, but rather as inspirational fuel. To become more of what we already are.

    got about 20 grand?? you can do that too.. these people spent a ton of money getting to this point

     No license? By driving on the road you are breaking the law and stealing from the people who pay for them. Go ahead and walk or take the bus from now on. What happens if you get in a traffic accident and hurt someone else? You need to truly walk the talk you speak you must never drive the roads-use the fire dept- hospital- police force- postal service- etc etc. What if you need an ambulance or your house turns into a giant tire fire?  You can expect to be protected if someone decides to take your property by force iether.  What you really need to do is buy yourself an island somewhere and then fight a war and claim it as a new sovereign country. I’m a patriotic Canadian and I believe united we stand- divided we fall.  This guy’s family will unfortunately have to pay the piper one day and if he does not then the future generations of his family will end up paying so many back taxes with interest it will make your head spin. 
    This is called freeloading or squatting. Nothing more nothing less. Unless you pay basic property taxes and if you want to drive the roads then get a drivers license. I’m all for off the grid but this
    going way to far.

      totally missed the point of the documentary and proved that fear really does hold everyone in their place. what are you patriotic about and why? why arent you ‘patriotic’ about your own rights and freedom? you would give them up for the idea of a country?

      they don’t tell us all the little details like where all the money came from for all those modern conveniences like generators and whatnot. People who go off the grid, and still use money, aren’t really off the grid. it costs money to go off the grid if you expect to retain any of what society has grown to hold near and dear to their hearts. If you really want to go off the grid, fill a backpack with essential back country backpacking gear, with some essential long term survival supplies, like seeds and tools, then, find a piece of desolate forest and go build a home.maybe you will be a squatter. maybe it will be public land, maybe it will be an island. but that is the only way to get what these guys constantly preach about. getting back in touch with nature.

      It is very easy to critisize this, and by all means it is not perfect what this man is doing, i really like that this man has done his homework and knows the laws and the way to avoid them. you say what about a fire, you need an operation, you injure somebody being in an accident, yes you are right, but now i like to tell you something, i am dutch and i am living in Greece. I am searching to buy a piece of land to grow food, if you know anything of what is happening in Greece you understand why. Now europe , the european union, all the country’s involved have signed that collecting rainwater is forbidden, so suddenly they have decided that what falls from the sky is theirs, they have not executed this law yet, but because i found out this i am looking for land wich has its own water, now here in Greece they started executing a new law that every piece of land wich has it’s own water must have a watermeter and pay for this water.
      Now you know it gets very hot here in summer, most lands count on collected rainwater, people have no money, we pay and pay and pay, because they say that Greece has a debt, and we are only getting more and more debt,because with all this paying and paying small shops close, so less taxes come in, and with all shops and companies closing (they cannot compete with the bigger companies abroad) the export that was already little has become even less, so now when you are hospitalized you have to pay it yourself, also your medicins.
      The salaries the people are getting are not covering their bills let alone their medicine.So here it is when they start to execute this law of forbidden to collect rainwater, a couple of things can happen,they either say you have to get a tap and pay for your water, or they forbid it without other options, but the result is the same, people will not be able to pay for this water and their land will dry out and whatever is on it will die. The land with it’s own water it will all depend on how much they will charge for this water. So you get the picture, soon there will be no life to defend, so in that case being run over by a car is less damaging than dying from hunger. The same with the company Monsato, all the countries of the european union have signed that local seeds are forbidden, only genetically seeds are allowed, exept for the healthaspects my major concern is that you have to buy these seeds every year , that these seeds mutate with the existing seeds, but not only that with the local seeds gone, there are no seeds that we can collect for the next year, and they can ask any price they want for their genetic manipulated seed they want. So this i find a lot scarier than a fire in my barn. If you are worried about losing the good things sociaty is providing to you, do compare them with what they are taking from you, Because if this goes on you are more likely to get killed by the power of the corporations in your country than by a car. I wish i knew how to do what this man is doing and know the law so well that i can have free water for my (hopefully future) land, and am able to seed normal local original seeds. I am not the kind of person who is able to get into all that, but i hope to find a lawer or lawstudent who is and can help us all here. Do not think this is Greece and this will not happen in your own country,it is likely already happening. We have to look at alternatives even if they are not perfect, i personally like the Venus project, although i did not see everything there and i do not agree with everything, i think we will still have prisons and police, but if we would have a society that had no money at all, than you would get a reward for doing things for others, i can imagine for instance, that a docter, or people who transport things on ships because they are doing things that are of service to others will get for instance a reward by a bigger choice in what house they want to live in , or more access to more scarce products, the preveledge to get their food already cooked for them or get their house cleaned, and keeping the whole worlds needs (what is needed where) as the best use of computers, but for something like that to happen we still have a long road to go, we have to start with seing ourselves as worldciticens and not part of a country,it is injust to say to an african you cannot so easy come to live here but i can very easy come to live in your country if i wanted to. We have to start to get rid of our egoism and consumptionhabits, 80% of what we produce is what we do not need, and the remaining 20 % is damaging to our invironment.
      We want a system that is justified for all of us and does not desroy our invironment, for this to happen we need to start somewhere, we are a little bit late to react to the corruption in our world, and we cannot only blame the big corporations, for as long as i remember we accepted hunger in many countries we just kept on going with our lives, we wanted the same as the big corporations and that is wealth and power for ourselves, not to safe the world with or the people, so when we now start understanding not wanting good for others, not solving worldproblems, not being involved in politics, and not willing to live with less will make us pay dearly. So every idea about what we can do, no matter that it is not perfect, evey effort i apploud. And i hope you can see that changing this world for the better, means also looking at yourself and not only at what the bad others are doing.
      greetings Olga P.s sorry for my bad english

    Once again they deliver a great documentary.

    On it’s merits…
     
     Fair play to ‘Rob’-and his family.   I admire the ‘cool head with warm heart’.  I’m still working on the former.  I know to get to ‘insight’ one has to sacrifice …much.
     
      I could have done with some wise counsel over 3 decades.  Hint: If I never see another lawyer; it will be too soon.
     
     On a production level(as a non pro)…I stayed to the last ‘byte of the codec’ to this documentary-and the graphics could be accused by detractors -as sinister.  The mesmeric sphere moving left to right ecetera.
     
       I didn’t like the word ‘icon’ -in the production company’s nomenclature either.   Icons are to be avoided.  qv. the PR industry begat by Mr Bernays.

    @Olga
    So sorry to read that now your rain water is owned by somebody. It happened in Bolivia (Ithink) a couple of years ago and I just couldn’t believe it! A Canadian company owned the rights!!!!
    This kind of thing will be happening all over the world soon. Sad and inevitable.
    Next there’ll be a tax on the air we breathe.
    If I wasn’t such a suck I’d run away and live in a cave.

    I agree with those who defends this man’s point of view, and I also recognize that it isn’t perfect and he is not 100% “off the grid”. He himself stated that he was in a project that will meet problems and that he will have to be forever adjusting to those challenges. But, he is on the path that he has chosen for himself, that’s more than what most of us are doing. I left America 7 years ago with massive disdain for the GWB era of endless wars and the systematic crushing of the middle class, that I fled to Thailand as an expatriate. I am here with a lovely Thai woman and we have 4 acres of farmland in way up in the north. We are planning to, in the very least, be subsistence farmers; rain/well water, solar energy, hogs, chickens, and many veggies and fruit! We will maintain our contracts as citizens…but we will depend on the “corporation/state” as little AS possible. Thailand is a “developing nation”, so we don’t experience nearly half of the gov’t/corporation interference as we would in The USA….yet.
    Anyway, that is what I took from this man and his actions. He deserves respect, even if you do not agree. The first step to being “off the grid”, is taking the first step, the rest will follow.

    I live in Europe and can honestly say that there is no law banning people from collecting rainwater, in fact, I have lots of friends who collect rainwater and recycle it; you can buy a kit for doing it from most d.i.y stores.
    All this sounds very good, but it is based on an erroneous interpretation of Law. You would be better channelling your energies into something more constructive than this.

    • human

      I live in Europe too and can say that there are laws banning people from collecting rainwater for shower/laundry/dishwashing, etc. if it’s to be released in the public water system.

    well done doco – i find that nothing is hidden if u look properly. 2 me it is buried in language, as we have atonement of god, to create an equity we need an opposition ‘judas-ary’ or admiralty. similarly i found that admiralty is of accounts and in accounts u r dealing with red or black. the courts should b in the black as an account is historical, but a judge will do his best to have u considered ‘conside-red’, the prosecutor will pre-vail a ‘red-acted’ statement. the problems have arisen in that we as secular entities are being controlled by the accounts of conglomerates and be it that historically they held the knowledge and enabled themselves by bloodlines ‘red’ 2 perpetuate their reign, we were bound to feudal tenancy.

    Having a hard time getting what he’s getting at. The music and his monotone voice gives of an air of doom. What, is anarchy the answer to world problems. Living off the grid and saving money and the environment is what I thought this was all about. It’s going to take some clashing but the fight for human rights, equity in taxes and helping our neighbors all round the world must continue. We must continue to set the example. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was utopia. The world is constantly evolving and we must make sure it evolves into the right kind of place.
