DOWNLOAD Folks This Aint Normal ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF FREE READ ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF · Joel Salatin READ Folks This Aint Normal From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view life in the 21st century just ain't normal In FOLKS THIS AIN'T NORMAL he discusses how far removed we are from the simple sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love Salatin has many thoughts on what normal is and shares practical and philosophical ideas for changing our lives in small ways that have big impactSalati. I m about 13 the way into this book I ve had to return it because there are other people on hold for it and I find Mr Salatin to be something of a hypocrite The funny thing is that I generally agree with many of his over arching ideas but the guy just comes across as a major jerk and I have a hard time taking him seriously He s got some good points and some great ideas but he delivers them like a crusty old man cane in the air yelling Back in MY day you whippersnappers wouldn t have survived ten minutes and because of that the world is falling apartHe seems defensive about so many things that I don t find enjoyment in his thoughts on working in harmony with the land His story is similar to Barbara Kingsolver s Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life but while I found hers to be inspiring enlightening funny and generally uplifting I find his to be preachy attempting to induce guilt self righteous and pretentiousI know he said he loves debate and maybe he feels that s what gives him license to foist his opinions upon his audience in an aggressive and sometimes unpleasant fashion Maybe that s what lets him judge others in the exact same way he hates being judged Maybe that s what allows him to label me a tattooed and pierced video game player as aberrant though I also grow my own garlic have butchered chickens and gatherchop firewood every summer It just seems to me that someone who lauds the concept of balance with the land on the farm in life cannot seem to understand the idea of balance among society Not all of us can or want to be farmers It s ok to be an accountant It s ok to be a surfer It s ok to be a video game developer All these people make our society a much rich place than it would be were we all farmersI think he s absolutely right people should be aware of how the earth works but I think he could probably probably learn some lessons as to how the world worksI plan to finish reading the book as pugnacious as I am finding the author I have learned two things so far the various names for bovine and the existence of Small Plot Intensive Farming something I plan to look into and any book that teaches me stuff regardless of my opinion of the author deserves to be finishedUPDATE It took a long long time but I grudgingly finished this book I got a lot out of it but this guy seriously irritates me so it was hard to separate the wheat from the chaff which is something he explains in one of the chapters so look at me being all relevant and cutesy at the same timeI would have liked bibliographical references I can go through the effort of fact checking his information but I would have liked to have had a list of resources as a starting point were I to be so ambitious As I ve mentioned in other reviews it is difficult to take someone seriously when they spout facts and don t offer backup To me that means the person s facts can only be regarded as opinionSome of my takeaways I need to be better about personal water conservation I m in Colorado and he mentions that keeping rain barrels is illegal However I ve come across some conflicting information so now this is a point I will need to research If I truly can keep rain barrels now I will definitely begin to do so I can feel pretty good about my own personal efforts to live responsibly I do compost I garden my husband makes our bread we still buy flour but we try to buy healthy flour I buy local when possible and we try to support our community as much as possible I don t want to be a farmer While the idea is charming and wonderful the reality is a bit much for me I like to solve problems but I m not great at logistics and running a household taxes my limited capabilities as it is I couldn t do a whole farm However I have even greater appreciation for the traditional farms in my area I m fairly proud of my early education One of the things Salatin harped on in a chapter is how farmers are looked down upon and no one would ever think of farming as a career opportunity As I was growing up farming was always shown to be a viable occupation In my community farmers are another type of civil servant They may not be governmental entities but they exist for the betterment of the community much like teachers firefighters police officers librarians what a shameless self plug right and everyone else who works to help their neighbors and knows they won t be paid much to do so Maybe that s why there were so many kids in 4 H when I was in school farming was never seen as a hick thing to do It was actual career option and was taken seriously Mostly though I just want to shove Mr Salatin into a pile of his own pig manure and tell him that if he wants to get his message across he might try being less of a sarcastic bully and instead think about being welcoming to people who might be interested in changing the way they live but don t know how to go about doing soI would definitely recommend Barbara Kingsolver s Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life over this book Thank goodness Salatin also recognizes the power of Kingsolver s work I d have had to truly ignore him otherwise The uantum Magician of view life in the 21st century just
