What Are ‘Eco-Hobos’?

Freaks or farce? Glorifying human retrogression.

It’s hard to know if this video is a Spinal Tap style farce, or a freakish collection freeloaders glorifying the retrogression of human progress. They are living as humans in the west lived in the 18th Century, except without the work ethic.

They get free food, produce little, lounge around in tents, pee into hay bales, dumpster dive for food and beg.  We know them here in the United States as hobos, bums and the people under the bridge.

One woman says “it wasn’t really a conscious decision” to live like this – how could it be!?

But they’ve adopted the “Eco” label. Eco-This, Eco-That, which buys good press for what is otherwise a shameful waste of time and talent. Their “Eco-village” dispenses with one of the most important human inventions to aid good health: sewage systems. The village represents an environmentalist crusader’s dream – humanity reduced to low impact animals with minimalists footprints. A side benefit, according to one Eco-Hobo, is a “peaceful solution to the problem of humanity.”

Sure it is.

I wonder also about long term dirt: how do they wash their clothes? And if they don't the ecology will soon include fleas and lice. and then.. perhaps typhus!

they have attached the ubiquitous parasitical sucker "eco" in front of hobo (probably some delusional retro chic hipster reflex) but it is more accurate to simply call them bums

traditionally,
a hobo travels around and looks for any kind of work
a tramp travels around but doesnt work
a bum neither travels nor works

As U.S. society continues it's pathetic slide into the abyss. . .

Without modern society to live off of, these people would swiftly die off because they don't know the first thing about how to care for themselves and when everyone else is reduced to a survival footing, there will be no more dumpsters to dive.

The solution is simple: the next time any of them become ill, deny them all the benefits of modern medical care. Let's see just how fast they abandon their "Eco" tag to get well.

How is living in filth and using open fires for cooking and heat good for ecology?

Not to mention urinating and defecating at will wherever.

Maybe they mean it'd be environmentally "beneficial" if plague and general ill health return to reduce the "surplus population" (e.g., anyone outside of a given environmentalist's personal circle).
