Bruce was so enthusiastic about his plans, however, the world had its own plans too. He sadly passed away at the age of 87, way before the world came to an end. He was a great believer in unity and harmony but he forgot one important thing.
He spent almost half of his life preparing for the future while neglecting the present and all it had to offer. Today, his wife and family are left wondering what would have happened if only Bruce’s plans would have really come true.
There is more behind the name SAFE. It stands for "Safe America for Everyone". This meant his home, shelter, and heart were open to everyone, regardless of religion, color, gender, or beliefs.
Bruce said that he was an optimist when it came to mankind, however, he couldn't help being a pessimist when it came to the near future. He knew a disaster was just around the corner, but he felt it would be an opportunity to change our ways significantly.
They Would All Benefit
He believed a better, healthier, and more stable society would be born out of the chaos. A more open-minded and more accepting society.
Everything had a reason, and whatever was planned to hit them had reasoning too. Something good had to come out of it and he wanted to get people thinking and reordering their priorities in life.
Gone are the days of mega-mansions and luxury lifestyles. With the rise of housing costs and an increasing need to "go green", people are turning to new housing styles. These can include anything from the Instagram glorified "van life" lifestyle to DIY homes on self-sustaining hilltops.
While many of these options are low-cost, they do still require a bit of cash. Whether it be over the price of conversions, construction, or upkeep, it's best to find out what these alternative lifestyles actually look like, and if they are worth the cost for you.
Project Van Life
This is by far the most popular form of alternative living that appeals to anyone from hardcore nomadic hippies to rich hipsters on a break from city life. The US is currently seeing a home revolution with folks across the nation converting old Sprinter vans into mobile homes. It's cheap to buy and you can obviously travel anywhere.
Of course, the sky is the limit in terms of luxuries and amenities, but for the basics, it can cost as little as $3,000 to buy and build your own vehicle. Things can get steep but it's still a whole lot cheaper than buying an actual house.
