Any countries still giving free land for expats? Asking for myself, I want a simple life.

[-] Kiosade@lemmy.ca 63 points 1 month ago

Farming isn’t a simple life, just letting you know from the start.

Poor wording I guess.

I know farming is hard work, but I’d be happy with my own plot doing my own thing.

Life right now is not simple and I got my dream job and I still don’t think I’ll be happy. Owning my own plot of land would be wonderful and unload a lot of anxiety.

[-] Kiosade@lemmy.ca 19 points 1 month ago

That’s fair! Modern life is… very complex, and expects a lot out of you, even if you’re “doing well”.

Yup. It’s morbid I know but I swear I’m just looking forward to the day I don’t wake up again. Sadly I’ve got another 40 years to go.

Keep in mind farming is also quite expensive nowadays and you won’t be able to survive off the yields by farming your great grandfathers way.

Clarksons farm hams it up a bit but does touch on the real costs and effort that goes into modern farming. He just finished season 4 and affirmed again that a normal farmer would be bankrupt in his situation, his farm only survives due to his being rich from other revenue streams

Simple =/= easy

I hear Israel is handing out free land these days - or, more accurately, will allow you to steal it from the people living there while fascist goons squads backs you up with overwhelming firepower.

You know... the way settler-colonialism has pretty much always worked.

Sicily gives you derelict houses

Oooh! Free vendetta ghosts!

We've thought about it, but it can be hot as hell during the summer and water shortages aren't uncommon. Given how climate change is affecting everything, it seems like a bad long term investment.

[-] JJROKCZ@lemmy.world 7 points 1 month ago

Yea Italy hasn’t been doing real well for… well centuries now, and with climate change it doesn’t have a pleasant outlook for the future.

Better than buying land in holland though

It is probably a bad short term investment too

That’d be cool. It’s a fixer upper.

Any countries still giving free land for expats?

That depends. Do you have a time machine?

Nope but I saw an advert on YouTube selling them for cheap so I can get one.

As long as you aren't Native American, ironically, the homestead act still applies to about 10% of the country

I remember when I first actually read all that small legal text for a contest where you'd win a lifetime supply of some food product.

In your mind, especially as a kid, you just imagine you have as much of it as you could ever want. Bzzt! Nope. It's like 1 free thing a month for the next 20 years. Not even technically a lifetime. 😮‍💨

[-] z00s@lemmy.world 11 points 1 month ago

I mean, it's a lifetime if you've got leukaemia

[-] milicent_bystandr@lemm.ee 5 points 1 month ago

Or the company arranges your 'suicide' on the 20yr mark.

[-] thefrankring@lemmy.world 12 points 1 month ago

I won a lifetime supply of breathing air.

So far, I'm not disappointed.

[-] milicent_bystandr@lemm.ee 9 points 1 month ago

Yeah but shrinkflation means these days it comes with 20% less nutritional* particles.


Some cities are still working on increasing them though. Just don't go to the premium mountain venues though, or you get 20% less air per air!
