Check out Sovereign Living at Rethinking Everything this weekend! (In Irving, TX)

For immediate release 08/25/13

A veteran to the idea of “free-living”, Rethinking Everything has become a pivotal organization in the unschooling movement. Since 1991 these education reformists have strived to help families reach their full “freedom-potential”, from birth to death, with focus on education, self-design, gentle-parenting and so much more. It’s no wonder Sovereign Living was invited to participate in this year’s conference! As John Bush, co-star of the show said, in regards to the show’s mission:

“We’re trying to lead by example and live in a manner that’s consistent with the ideal [free] society we envision.”

Sovereign Living follows The Blush Family as they detach from central institutions and live as far off the grid as possible – in a reality-style show all can enjoy. Their children, though young, are being brought up in a liberty-filled environment and are, essentially, this conference’s message put into practice. Co-star of the show, John Bush, will be holding four sessions at the conference, one being the airing of Episode 1-3! Other awesome sessions to catch:

  • Anarchism and Radical Unschooling: Two Peas in a Peaceful Pod
  • Sovereign Living: Becoming Self Sufficient and Leading a Voluntary and Natural Life (Friday – 3:30pm)
  • Building Value in a Down Economy: A Family Guide to Alternative Currencies, Entrepeneurship and Voluntary Exchange (Saturday – 3:30pm)

The conference starts August 22nd and runs until the 26th in Irving, TX. To learn more about panel start times, lodging, etc. visit RethinkingEverything.net. The options are endless on what you can learn and bring home from this event, so do your best to make it all weekend long!

The homeschooling and alternative education network is growing. People want to guide their children away from the downward spiraling school systems in America, give them a chance to achieve goals that are unthinkable in most mainstream classrooms. Sovereign Living plans to play their part in this evolution of education by producing a fun, informative show that walks the walk. If you haven’t checked out the sizzle reel, now’s your chance. If you “rethink everything” you’ll love the opening of the trailer! 😉
Join the exclusive opportunity to see Episodes 1-3 at the Rethinking Everything Conference this weekend in Dallas. The screening begins at 3:30pm on Sunday in the Napa I room. All are welcome to attend. Following the show, the cast will be taking questions from the audience, so stick around for all three episodes.

Max Borders, editor of The Freeman, says "I sure couldn't do it…unless I had to."

Meet the Blush family. They represent a growing faction of libertarians that mix the rugged individualism of Spooner with the self-reliance of Thoreau. And they’re making a reality show.

You might think they’re crazy. After all, they’re weaning themselves from the grid in order to opt out of the structures they believe have been corrupted by state control and corporate cronyism. That means giving up plentiful energy, convenient food, and economies of scale.

But is it crazy?

I sure couldn’t do it—not unless I had to. I’m totally dependent, as most of us are, on regulated monopolies to feed our appliances and big boxes stocked full of cheap goods. I like economies of scale. I also like manufactured pharmaceuticals, wireless gadgets, and air travel—despite the fact that all of these industries are corrupted to varying degrees.

But people who engage in sovereign living are often happy people. They have tight communities and are not worried for a second about brownouts or the crash of the dollar. If the zombie apocalypse comes, they’ve already practiced being truly free. They are more resilient. And most importantly, they are participating in the construction of the counter-economy.

In Central Texas a family of four is seeing what it takes to live a self-sufficient, voluntary, and natural life by creating their own energy, food, water system, and much more. John Bush and Catherine Bleish have taken on a task that could unplug them from dependence on large outside institutions and plug them into true sovereign living. Now you can follow their journey on the newest web series “Sovereign Living TV”. A glimpse into the series is LIVE now at SovereignLiving.tv/TheShow! This sizzle reel introduces you to the family, their goals during the season and even gives you a glimpse into the natural home-birth of their second child.

“Sovereign Living is the idea that people ought to take responsibility for providing for themselves, their family, and their community from the provision of food, the provision of health care, to the provision of community defense.” – shares John.

This bold step to self-sufficiency includes the family’s attempt to reduce their energy through a combination of preservation and alternative energy, namely solar. They are also hoping to grow, trade and farm 50% of their food needs over the course of the next year. In hopes to inspire other families and communities across the country Sovereign Living:The Show will be taking the viewer inside their lives and the obstacles and amazing feats that come along the way, while also visiting other similar farms and projects across the country.

“You need not ask permission”: SovereignLiving.TV Launches!

The latest video and blog tool coming out of the Austin-based liberty activist community is SovereignLiving.TV, a place to learn about living self-sufficiently. Learn to grow your our groceries, educate your children at home, and even clean your hair without using shampoo, all are apart of the vast amount of subjects eloquently populated to this site everyday via blogposts and podcasts.

Starting this Saturday SovereignLiving.TV will be sharing a snippet from its first educational episode at the Center for Natural Living Launch Party! At the event a teaser of the show will be released for the first time ever in public, and those who are accessing the event online will also have a chance to see this, don’t worry!

As multiple venues surface to provide alternative media across the country, SovereignLiving.TV will bring to the table the sustainability and health-focused commentary you all have grown to love from the Center for Natural Living and Blush Family Farm operators. Once again, voluntary connections making the world a better place.

I hope you all follow the show at SovereignLiving.TV and catch the first glimpse of the show at the launch party this Saturday! This is so important for those of you looking for a way to “practice what you preach”. The founders of this new venture wanted to share this:

“Those seeking freedom all too often find their lives consumed by the need and desire to fight against what they see as intrusive and overreaching threats to their individual liberty.  It is in this reaction that we are giving up our freedom – for when the enemies of liberty are able to dictate our actions, we are not living freely according to our own path.” – From John Bush and Cat Bleish

Tony's Kansas City Covers Our First Sovereign Living presentation

CAT TALKS LIBERTY IN KANSAS CITY!!!

Earlier this week we noted an important discussion in Kansas City regarding a new ideology gaining momentum in the metro amid the ongoing Great Recession.

Last night we had the chance to sit-in on an important, alternative talk . . .

Get Informed Evening: Sovereign Living with Catherine Bleish

First of all, we need to note that it was really surprising to see a room of about 50 or more people come out to discuss ideology and alternative commerce, health and financial practices on a school night. Additionally, Liberty Activist Catherine Bleish has really come into her own as a speaker and organizer in this fledgling movement.

The conversation included info on topics ranging from urban farming to silver trading and even liberty minded organizing tactics. Cat’s insight into her own experience as an activist proved to be the most captivating part of the discussion.

“This has been a learning process for me. Over the year my ideas about Liberty and activism have evolved,” Ms. Bleish said. “I think what I’ve learned might offer some guidance for people interested in a Liberty-minded approach to their own lives.”

The focus on individual participation as part of a movement was a nice change from the typical partisan rallies to which TKC is accustomed. So often in GOP/Democratic Party politics there is an overwhelming urge to divide crowds and break down every demographic into a special interest group. The two parties that dominate American politics aren’t interested in the lives of their constituents, they’re simply looking to amass an audience receptive to their talking points. What seems to be the key to recent success among “liberty-minded” advocates is their “opt-in” approach that focuses on personal choice. Like it or not, this niche of “small-l” Libertarians represent the only real opportunity for growth among the GOP – Alternatively, this point of view reflects the deep divisions of Conservative America.

From “Preppers” to urban agriculture advocates . . . Cat covered a great deal in her talk and seemed to inspire the audience to learn more . . . Listening to the topics under discussion I couldn’t help but think that these ideas are going to draw increasing interest as the Great Recession becomes “the new normal” and promises from both major U.S. political parties fail to pan out.

The talk was hosted by Tracy Ward’s Liberty Restoration Projectwhich has gained notoriety for standing up against Red Light Cameras and Airport Body Scanning.

Tracy and Cat were nice enough to smile for this TKC snapshot.

To learn more about Cat’s adventures check out her Sovereign Livingwebsite which offers a nice perspective on “liberty-minded” alternatives to the current corporate and political hegemony.
