    55 Ways to Starve The Beast

    55 Ways to Starve the Beast
    October 21st, 2019
    A term coined in 1985 by the Reagan administration was “Starve the Beast”. This referred to a fiscally conservative political strategy to cut government spending by paying less in taxes. So, “the Beast” was the government, and people were to starve said beast by spending less and using loopholes to pay less in taxes.

    Now the Beast is a whole lot bigger. Big Agri, Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Food, Big Banking, and Big Oil, to name a few. Starve the Beast by taking as many of these steps as possible…
    1. Grow your own food.
    2. Shop at local businesses with no corporate ties.
    3. Use natural remedies instead of pharmaceuticals whenever possible.
    4. Homeschool your children. If you can’t homeschool, at the very least, spend time undoing the indoctrination by giving them the tools to think critically.
    5. Walk or bike instead of driving when you can.
    6. When possible, get care from naturopaths and healers instead of doctors.
    7. Make paper logs from scraps for free heat if you have a wood-burning fireplace or stove.
    8. Boycott all processed foods.
    9. Shop at local farmer’s markets or buy directly from the farms themselves.
    10. Don’t buy from corporate stores: Walmart, Costco, Best Buy, Home Depot. Instead, pay a few extra dollars and buy from local vendors.
    11. Give vouchers as gifts for an evening of babysitting, a homemade meal, walking the dog, doing a repair, or cleaning.
    12. Join a CSA or farm co-op.
    13. Ditch television (and all the propaganda and commercials). If you want to view programs, enroll in a streaming service without commercials like Netflix.
    14. Participate in the barter system – although remember that even if no money changes hands, the government would like for you to let them know so you can be duly taxed.
    15. Buy secondhand from yard sales, Craigslist, and thrift stores.
    16. Sell your own unwanted goods by having a yard sale or putting an ad on Craigslist.
    17. Repair things instead of replacing them.
    18. Avoid fast-food restaurants and chain restaurants.
    19. Dine at locally owned establishments if you eat out.
    20. Brew your own beer and wine.
    21. Cook from scratch to avoid all those Big Food chemicals and additives.
    22. Grow or gather medicinal herbs.
    23. Give homemade gifts.
    24. Attend free local activities: lectures, concerts, play days at the park, library events.
    25. Dumpster dive and pick up things from the curb.
    26. Play outside: hike, bike, picnic.
    27. Mend clothing.
    28. Invite someone over for dinner instead of meeting at a chain restaurant.
    29. Throw creative birthday parties at home for your kids instead of renting a venue.
    30. Travel to other countries and note how most are not filled with mega-corporations, and local businesses still thrive.
    31. Bring your coffee with you in a travel mug.
    32. Do all of your Christmas shopping with small local businesses and artisans.
    33. Reduce your electricity usage with candles, solar power, and non-tech entertainment.
    34. Drop the thermostat and put on a sweater.
    35. Bring your snacks and drinks in a cooler when you go on a road trip.
    36. Stay home – it’s way easier to avoid temptations that way. Shopping should not be a form of entertainment.
    37. Pack lunches for work and school.
    38. Make delicious homemade treats as a hostess gift.
    39. Close your bank account or at the very least, strictly limit your balance.
    40. Visit u-pick berry patches and orchards, then preserve your harvest for the winter.
    41. Use precious metals stored at home as your savings account.
    42. Raise backyard chickens for your own eggs.
    43. If you are a smoker, roll your own cigarettes – if possible go one step further and grow tobacco.
    44. Brew your own beer, wine, and liquor.
    45. Use solar power for lighting or cooking.
    46. Collect rainwater for use in the garden.
    47. Learn to forage.
    48. Buy heavy, solid, handmade furniture instead of the flimsy imported stuff
    49. At the holidays, focus on activities and traditions instead of gifts.
    50. Make your own bath and body products using pure ingredients like coconut oil, essential oils, and herbal extracts
    51. Use alternative social media.
    52. Get an old-fashioned flip phone while you still can.
    53. Drive an older car without GPS tracking.
    54. Use a VPN like ExpressVPN to keep your location information masked on your electronic devices.
    55. Avoid adding surveillance technology such as Ring or Nest to your home.
