Homesteading is a lifestyle. It may require a drastic change but you may be surprised to find out that you are already on the path to homesteading and self-sufficiency. In many ways it is abandoning what you have been taught throughout your life to be 'normal' or what is the American dream.
Homesteading doesn't require you to live out of the country, although many choose to. Homesteading and self-sufficiency requires you to not have to rely on corporations or the government to survive.
