Self Sufficient(ish)

I’ve been thinking about how we can become self sufficient a lot lately and I’ve come to the conclusion that in this day and age true self sufficiency is nigh on impossible to achieve.

The definition of self sufficient in my dictionary reads “able to supply one’s own or its own needs without external assistance 

Yes, we could live off the grid by installing solar, finding a convenient fresh water spring and having a compostable midden, but whilst we are living in England there is no avoiding the payment of council tax and could we really live without the NHS and a broadband connection?

I think the best we can hope for is self sufficientish.
