    Leave my cozy air conditioned room.... to do physical labor?

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I think it is actually refreshing to see. Learning a skill is far better than going to a college and putting themselves in massive debt to try to find a job that they will ultimately hate, but have to stay in to pay the enormous debt over their heads.

    Also, what will be the new narrative that the government is letting in migrant workers because, they do the jobs, no American's want to do?

    These youngsters need to be careful!

    Without the constant stimuli of group-think they might start thinking for themselves.

    Making/growing/fixing stuff gives one a sense of independence that's hard to shake...

    I'd take physical labor over working in an office any day.

    My body is just as broken from sitting in an office chair all day every day as it would be doing anything else, perhaps even more so considering we are meant to be standing/walking. After having an office job for a decade now, I want to go back to something outdoor/manual labor in the worst way.
    Just can't find anything that pays equivalent...

    The part that cracked me up was that Oliver Wendell Douglas was very determined and well-researched in his agricultural endeavors, but was constantly failing.

    His neighbors were absolute dolts and morons and were successful at farming.

    The government ag agent was the dumbest of all.

    Since I take everything reported by MSM with a grain of salt, I was surprised when I started hearing about this from real people I interact with recently. "Have you talked to XXXXX lately?" "No, she left a few months ago to go work on a farm somewhere."

    "We have set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of individuality by the symbolic unit of COLLECTIVISM. They have never yet and they never will have the sense to reflect that this hobby-horse is a manifest violation of the most important law of nature, which has established from the very creation of the world one unit unlike another and precisely for the purpose of instituting individuality."- A Quote From Some Old Book

    Like every other profession, skilled trade jobs are most rewarding once you put the years in. Once you are experienced, you can start a business and in today’s climate this is almost a cheat code. 400-500k a year take home after 3-5 years in business with a relatively small company. The pay is not the issue - it’s getting all the knowledge you need to operate a successful business which takes time.

    Right, and me learning this well after my schooling age years was a bit of a gut punch. I'm still youngish and can still take off, but I'll be a solid 10+ years behind in whatever it is I'd figure out to do.

    Even so, I'd highly recommend it to anyone not wanting to go to college now.

    I'm pretty fortunate that my job isn't tied to an office. I don't commute to a farm, but when the weather's nice, I've got the laptop and external monitor set up in the backyard so that I can get the sun, fresh air, and watch the critters come and go. I hope to be able to do the same from a chunk of mountain forest sometime soon and dabble in the homesteading arts.
