Freedom is a small house in a city with cheap real estate, with a garden for horticulture. The yard is way more important than the house. I enjoy living in a country with a lot of sunshine hours, free public healthcare, and free university for the kids. Walking/biking distance of shops/communities. Financial independence by minimizing my spendings, maximizing my income, and safe, diverse, mostly passive investments.
When I was young, I used to think homesteading off-the-grid and self-sufficiency are the solution. I visited many people who were doing this. Almost all of them were miserable, and the communities were falling apart. There are better solutions for modern times.
Role models? Nobody. Fuck Bezos, Chomsky, Gates, Marx, Musk, Obama, Rogan, Sanders, and whatever jerk you're following. They are just people. We're better than perpetuating these cults of personality.
Good ideas don't have to be tethered to any one person. When we put all of our hopes into one individual, praise them, and scream their name, they are ALWAYS going to disappoint us in the end. Because power always reveals who you truly are.
No human is worthy of worship. You don't need people to lead you. I read a lot of books, but I always question what they are saying. When I tell you something, always question me.
Instead of focusing on goals, learn to enjoy the process. You will most likely discover in the end that the goals were lies anyway.
Nobody has ever proven that I actually know what I'm talking about. Never blindly trust people on the Internet—do your own research.
Unhype is 100% independent and not financed by a private equity firm or a large company. If it ever changes I will let you know here.
