100 thoughts on “Goodbye Drivers License, Social Security Card, and Bank Account”

  1. And it's true we need a lot less than we actually think we need. Each one of us probably need to measure that individually.

  2. Well done. Now go live on a bus up in the rockies and eat poisonous berries. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    I admire your courage.

  3. Young and ignorant. You just gave the world your personal information to steal your identity. You dont need a bank account or a ssn if you don't have a job, I assume you don't have medical insurance either, are you not going to use the health care system if you get sick or hurt? This is reckless. Please try and talk without every sentenance sounding like it's a question. You sound like a 13yr old girl talking.

  4. Let's just hope you never need to get hired at a job any time in the future. Cut up what cards you want… just understand that if you need to get hired, they will need a photocopy of your social security card. Sometimes they ask for 2 photo ids. I had my passport without a driver's license for years…. but that social security card is less for getting social security and more to do with future employment.

  5. Heโ€™s going to look look stupid when the financial system crashes and we are put on a cashless system and he has no documentation. You donโ€™t have to worry about your carbon imprint existing, because you wonโ€™t exist.

  6. I for one applaud you and admire your bravery. I think of the possibility of doing the same as you and I get anxiety. And the fact that I get anxiety is a sign that the evilness of this world has a hold on me. When we get comfortable that's a sign of being in a lifeless and doomed world. I hope and ask for strength so I may follow in some form your steps of returning to living simply and naturaly, the way all humanity should be….ignore some of these commenters rude remarks. They usually are paid trolls or beyond mean blinded hearted people. I appreciate and thank you for taking the time to make videos on your quest and for sharing with us. Wishing u the best

  7. I know you are joking right those documents such Identification is serious that's not a wise decision….just for the hippy life

  8. Screw the bankers and corporations ! Well done . This is the way it should be .

    Growing food is the most important job in the entire world ! The day when children say they want to become a successful organic farmer when they grow up, that is the day you will know the generation is becoming wiser .

  9. Sir I have nothing against you. Minimalism is not bad. However that being said. What you are doing is nonsense. Tearing up your personal documents is illogical. It seems this is an emotional act. Not and objective one.

    Driver License: Sir, if you do not want to drive. That is fine. Just do not drive. Impulse control. Very simple concept. If you feel you can not control your impulse to drive. Exchange your license for an ID card.

    US Passport: Effective ID and you choose to destroy it? Why would you do it that? Are you afraid you can not control the urge to buy a ticket and get on a plane?

    Social Security Card: What does that have to do with being a minimalist? I will agree social security may not be there when 'we' age into it.

    Let us say for the sake or argument that social security is there (more or less) when you are eligible to get it. Using your own statements as evidence. We can both agree that you will 'need' cash! If you want or more likely 'need' to draw upon that for 'any reason'. It will be hard as heck to do it because you do not have a bank account of any kind. Also you have no ID. So cashing your check at a check cashing facility would be all but impossible. So buy your admission. You are preparing to deny yourself resources you have earned. There is no objective thinking in denying yourself resources you have earned. To you detriment sir.

    Bank Accounts: Unless you are going to start buying rare metals and storing them in an undisclosed location. This is frankly stupid. Yes, I know the history of inflation and the gold standard being removed to facilitate it. Not just in the US but around the world.

    I have respect for minimizing your footprint on Earth. In fact to that extend I applaud you. Destroying your documents and tools is folly.

    Social Currency / Reciprocal Altruism / Social Capital: Your obviously going to depend on people. Who on Earth does not. History alone says having a good social network can provide wealth and resources. That is a big part about how we survive as a species. However friends, allies, associates, and family can all leave your short or outright betray you. That is life as we both know.

    – You choose the wrong people: Do not try to respond with that trope! Humans are humans through plight, blight, or choice people can turn on you. Even if they do not want to. They might need to.

    You want to live off the grid. Fine, good for you. You want to live a minimalist lifestyle. Go for it.

    Not having ID, Driver License, or a Bank – foolish. You like cash right? O.K. where are you storing your cash? A friends house? A friends' bank account? Your own personal safe? Are you going to get your insurance company to insure what you have on average in the safe? Who else knows about it?

    I have a hypothetical. You have $50,000 cash in a safe. Your friend, lover, wife, etc. Knocks you out and steals the safe. Depending on the safe, it is relatively easy to open one. I refer you to plenty of locksmith channels that show you 'exactly' how to do it. Then you have court or news articles that show you how depending on the brand, model, etc. So let us say 'hypothetically' you are robbed with $50,000 in cash in a safe. Say somebody you trusted robs you. Then you have to prove they did it. Prove they have the money. Hmm, o wait money laundering is a well established crime the world over. Perhaps they have a cash business or something. You see my point.

    You know what I would love to live in one of those 'container homes' homes myself. I would not want one much bigger than my apartment frankly.

    Conclusively most of what you described in this video is simply impulse control. There is no logical reason to destroy life critical documents.

  10. Why would you do the social security ? You never know what will happen to you in your older age? To not pay into SS you run the risk of getting very little at that most desperate time in your life. Jobs require your SS info. I'm not sure how smart this is? I'm 59 and have retired from my job of 30 years. Yeah!!!! I have worked since I was 16 years old so I'm ready to retire. I am very lucky That my job had retirement plan for me because it is the one thing I really didn't give much thought to after all it was along ways off. At 62 I will be claiming my SS it will add to my pot of gold I paid into it and I will claim it. Personally I will be ok without it but it will just be better. As long as you think you will be fine with no money woes or health woes which will put you out of a job so no money to eat. I forgot there is welfare but that pays very little. Everyone gets old and when you can't work to get money to eat or live I know you grow your own food I just think it's a crazy thing to do.

  11. Social Security might not be a good thing to get rid of. If you need health care and/or become disabled. Don't have the same social group; it's good to have. The extra income that you pay into is your money.

  12. You should never not have some kind of I.D. you never know when or if you will need it. If you walk outside you door without a I.D. any police officer can hold you for a minimum 48 hours or longer. Exsample a friend of mine was held ( because the officer was a dick) for almost a week trying to identify her and its all legal. She later tried to file charges and the basically laughed in her face. But your idea of going green is a good one.

  13. I wouldn't withdraw my application, because the social security number is not designated to me you're living person but is designated only to the strawman. They created it so they can make the laws for it. If they say the strawman has to have driver license in the straw man has to have driver license if they say the straw man have to have a Social Security number then the strawman have to have a Social Security number.. Our job is to possess these instruments rule over those instruments for our benefits; and file the appropriate security agreement with no liability attached to straw man.. I think it's important to keep in mind that Commerce is violent, for us to have peace we have to go to war.. remember Genesis 1:26 we are made in the image of God and one of the prominent qualities of the Creator is to rule even over man-made institutions.

    I think it's imperative for all of us to keep in mind this is a spiritual battle, Satan took the authority away from Adam and the Messiah came to give us back that Authority Luke 10:19 "I've given you Authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and the power that the enemy possesses and nothing will harm us…

    One more thing to keep in mind the Messiah pay for a debt/sins whenever's declared in heaven the Creator Maneuvers events on Earth so that declaration becomes reality on earth.. People believe that gold and silver was confiscated in coincidence, I don't think so Even's were being manipulated from Heaven only the Messiah blood pays all debts.. You look at all the 1099 forms are printed in red. Look up the year 1099 and see what you find? The filing is the same date of the Passover.. Every office every agent every Administration that exist in heaven has been duplicated on Earth but the offices are occupied by wicked men.. Also it took over 2000 years in the making to perfect all these Administrations.. So, when God destroys the Wicked the administration's remain and will be occupied by the the the righteous, and over the course of thousands of years the wicked thought these administration's we're being created for them, but fail to realize they were being used in the process.. All these Administrations agencies offices were created for us! shalom!

  14. You seem entirely too focused on possessions, you're counting them like you have 107 possessions how stupid is that, lay off the sauce man

  15. Trying not to internally scream. You are so brave! I wish I could disconnect. I don't think I can reach that level of commitment. I'm taking one step at a time, though, to live a bit more sustainably.

  16. I don't think he realizes that SS Card and DL he cut into pieces, is actually NOT his property! I hope he doesn't get in trouble!๐Ÿ˜•

  17. I don't have a driver's licence either. Never liked internal combustion vehicles which cause too much air pollution. Not to mention that you have to pay mandatory "insurance" (in essence just another tax) on something you supposedly own. Toll roads…screw that!

  18. I had to retire early because of a clothing disorder that causes multiple blood clots Iโ€™m glad I paid in since I was 14. Plus my retirement from Big Red (Big Phone Company) I worked hard for both. Social Security isnโ€™t the problem itโ€™s politicians in general they not the little person have been stealing from it for years and no accountability. I understand the driving thing and electric car or hybrid would lower footprint..cash is king get a prepaid debit card. Get a safe and up your home owners or renters insurance to cover that kind of loss. But kudos young man! I admire your tenacity! But plan and save because you never no!

  19. Good luck life is going to be a little more difficult with out them documents I tried that before for 14 years, with the world changing everyday documents are your life line you going to need them one day

  20. He has the ability to do this because he's a privileged white male who can sift through dumpsters without being subject to being shot by the police, or being subject to stop and frisk walking down the street. He has the white privilege and ability to have people who will allow him to live in a shack in their back yard without scrutiny of being hassled for doing by nosy neighbors who would call the cops on him if he was a brown person (who get the cops called on them in the US for having a barbecue in a park), and the white male privilege to go wherever he wants in the county unscathed. He can cut up his ID because he'll never be stopped and deported. He is a male so he can live in a tent and will never be raped. He is clueless to his white male privilege.

  21. ok Rob it Freetown extent u still by law have to have an I'd for where u live according to the Real ID Act … SS u will want what money U invested in it in time may not be much depending what u put into it thru the years … Debit Cards well it I'm afraid will replace all money eventually just a matter of time .. Fixed address is required by law these days thanks to the Real ID Act as well … Hate to break it to u laws be changing … When I was young I pretty much DiD the same then g it married kids a stint in the service worked till I retiree… Happy to have a house, big yard garden Space (Grow our own veggies, raise chickend) Eat lots of fish wild game If I could walk better It would be great comes from working to much, pounding concrete carrying tools etc… Live Your Dream Bubba As best as u can and as long as u can..,,

  22. I love how you are testing the boundaries and you are still here. ๐Ÿ™‚ If, heaven forbid, you ever did have something happen that required a SS card, you could always get another one. There is undoubtedly a birth certificate for you somewhere.

  23. In future videos I see you using car share. Did you end up getting a new license? How long were you without it?

  24. How naive! Other people are paying for your freedom. Outside the boundaries of the developed capitalist countries, you wouldn't last long.

  25. After video: calls up the Government, DMV and Bank "hey I need you guys to send me a replacement as my current one has been damaged"

  26. If you accept your social security you can donate it if you don't want to keep it. You paid into it with your own money. Just saying.

  27. Good luck getting into a hospital. Good luck ever buying a home. You're not saving the environment, you're not saving shit. A collective effort is needed and you're not doing that

  28. FAKE security ๐Ÿ”“๐Ÿ”“๐Ÿšฎ๐Ÿšฎ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ฒ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ—ฟ๐Ÿ—ฟ๐Ÿช๐Ÿซโ›ฉ๏ธ๐Ÿค’๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿš“๐Ÿš”๐Ÿ›ฌ๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿšฌ๐Ÿšฌ๐Ÿ”ฎโ™ฆ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿš›๐Ÿšš๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ›ต๐Ÿ“

  29. Very stupid.
    It's all very well doing these grand gestures when you are young, but you are not thinking of the future when you are old(er).
    you may want (need) employment, or some emergency cash, (it happens to the best of us and having a financial 'cushion' in the form of a credit card can be essential – you don't have to use it in the meantime)
    So you don't think you will ever drive again either ?
    As I said, very stupid.

  30. Yesterday i receive my ID from this vendor +14092467237 …. and i checked it today it was scannable and also pass the bend test …you can whatsapp or text him +14092467237

  33. Does this guy have an income? Of any kind? There's stuff he isn't telling us. Does he have children? How does he support them?

  34. Just received my SSC two days ago so i'm waiting now for my ID … everything is been done by this vendor i got the number on youtube ….+1(409) 246-7237(whatsapp/Text)

  35. So I am assuming you are also giving up the benefits of belonging to a society like social security checks when you are old, medicaid and medicare? Giving all that up too?

  36. This doesn't change anything other than not having forms of identification and so forth on you. They still exist elsewhere just wont be physically on you so this was pointless really. Sure the CC was okay, I never used them and if I can't pay for something in the long run then I don't bother so I can understand that and the checks. If you wanted to be healthier and exercise more then you could have done so without going through cutting up the license though.

    Hell I'm an average Joe but lately I find plenty of time to get exercise in, I work and am a single parent who has his son every other week but I find time. It's all about planning ahead which to me doesn't seem like you do very well. If the license for example was holding you back then I can see that being a reason otherwise to me it feels pointless, could've just left it at home and have the same result.

    One person changing won't make a difference to the world, your lifestyle yes but you alone wont make the world a better place unless others follow. I'm a pessimist so I'll say that, I'm also a hypocrite at times but hey if this makes you feel better then I respect your choices. I definitely don't agree with them in the end despite loving and wanting to take care of our planet but good luck!

  37. He wrote all on the paper before doing this so he gonna tell the police that "I'm stolen my wallet, with all documents mentioned".be careful

  38. I admire what this guy's doing and all, but he's kinda screwing himself over. Without his driver's license or social security card how is he supposed to prove his identity or get a job?
