Posted on 02/21/2013 4:51:03 PM PST by bgill
A Berlin family of three has been living on practically nothing but love and the goodwill of others for more than two years and countingnot as a victims of the rough economy, but as activists who are on a money strike to protest what they call our excess-consumption society. ... Though Fellmer uses no money, he said Palmer does use a little, mainly in the form of child support she receives from the government, which is granted to all children.

These people would starve with that excessive consumption society as would most of those hippy communes
Good I hate people like this. They think they’re better than everyone because they claim that they don’t buy into Capitalism. Yet in reality, they are just lazy bums who want to live off the public teet. My brother is one of them.
Hey, honey, who do you think pays for you to sit on your arse and protest all day? Ordinary, average, middle class workers who participate in the Capitalist system — that’s who.
That trip involved hitchhiking from Europe to Mexico without cash, simply depending on the goodwill and excess resources of others. It carried them over more than 19,000 miles on more than 500 vehiclesincluding a sailboat that took the trio from the Canary Islands to Brazil in exchange for crew dutiesand soon led Fellmer to meet his wife, Nieves Palmer, who became pregnant along the way.
Well, for starters, I suspect she wasn't his wife when, "along the way", she became pregnant. But, that aside, if everyone were to quit "consuming" as they claim to wish, there would be no one with the spare resources -- including an ocean-crossing sailboat -- to support their sorry butts.
Oh, how I'd love the opportunity to do my own report on this couple.
In other words, she’s a freeloader living off the work and good will of others.
You can’t make a true Sponge Cake unless you “borrow” all the ingredients.
I find it highly ironic that “living without money isn’t so bad” articles are forefront under this regime. Can you imagine the media running this type of article under a pubbie administration? Nope! Under the Bushes and Reagan it was “women and children hit hardest!!!!”
In American “family” courts, matriarchy, err I mean “CHILD” support is the ultimate wealth redistribution program. Any white male going through divorce court with children can tell you that—particularly in BLUE states.
Awwww. Aren’t they just soooooo special? Takers for sure. Makers? Yeah, makin’ a freakin’ mess.
parasites. there logic reminds me the “we are holier than ommercial radio because we don’t have paid advertising.” aside from getting my tax dollars they have companies give them money and they continuallu announce these “sponsors.” it’s advertising. “calling a dog a horse doesn’t make it so.”
I take it they live in the Eastern part of Berlin, the “Wall of the Mind” is still very much there.
I think they’re in Germany.
