I've always felt like I'd like to get a large parcel of land in a small rural community (say 100 acres) and then plant a forest garden bigger than I could ever possibly use. Than I could let the neighbors harvest stuff for a small fee (so that it would be cheaper than grocery store produce) and I wouldn't have to worry about thieves. And if TEOTWAKI comes, I wouldn't have to worry about people stealing my food, because I would have so much I could practically feed the entire community. Although I have also toyed with the food fortress idea myself.
I read people like Naomi Wolfe, Lindsay Williams, Michael Ruppert, who have some seriously dire predictions about the near future.

A point to remember about this Green Belt law is that only the land value is taxed lower, not the improvements. If you buy a $25,000 plot and build a $million Mc Mansion on it, you will pay reduced taxes on the land itself, but that mansion will be taxed at the full rate.
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
