Profiles in Moonbattery: Daniel Suelo
Moonbats don’t want us to earn a profit, to build anything, to eat animals, to use energy, to take up any space, et cetera. You might think you could only live up to their expectations by dying. But Daniel Suelo lights the path to progressive righteousness by proving it is possible to exist in accordance with liberal rhetoric:
[F]or the last twelve years [Daniel Suelo] has been penniless on purpose, surviving off the land.
After a stay in the Canada wilderness Suelo renounced living with money, left his last $30 dollars in a phone booth and moved to Moab, Utah.
As well as quitting cash, he threw away his passport and driving license and changed his legal name, Shellabarger, to Suelo, Spanish for ‘soil’.
Ever since then Suelo has lived outdoors, camped in the wilderness, lived in caves, stayed in communes and spent nights in stranger’s homes, who may have picked him up as a hitch-hiker.
For several years Suelo set up home in a cave, two hundred feet across and fifty feet tall, on the edge of a cliff in the Arches National Park, Utah.
Here he carved a bed out of rock, foraged for food, drank from springs and bathed in a creek.
Any hikers were welcomed to stay with him to share his ‘home’ , his books and the wildflowers and cactus seeds that he ate.
Occucommies may smell like goats, but Suelo even eats like one.
Unfortunately there is a slight blemish in Señor Soil’s hagiology. He succumbed to temptation by going on a binge when the federal government sent him $500 in the form of a “tax return.”
Daniel Suelo lurks in a crevice.
