EoP Amicus Submission to NC Legislature Re: NC Bill 774: Re: Turtle Island in NC v Eustace Conway is one of the EoP Legal Submission cases involving EoP scientific and cultural law recommendations to shut down the WiP Ponzi profiteering of resource conflict and misery economy, by ‘turning off the tap’ — i.e. the breeding / consumption above ecological carrying capacity limitscauses of resource conflict and war; by implementing an Ecology of Peace New World Order Social Contract that (a) requires all citizens of all races, religions, nations, to breed and consume below ecological carrying capacity limits; or be humanely eliminated from the planetary genepool; (b) nationalizes all property and provides all responsible freedom oath citizens: (i) cultural law self rule for groups with subjective racial, religious & gender identities; and (ii) a property ration to enable their shelter and survival self-sufficiency to enable the rebuilding of a relocalized low-tech organic agrarian sustainable future.



Eustace Conway: One of the most important things to know is that you don’t know what you are doing. A college degree education is not even a drop in the bucket, compared to the education that I’ve gotten in all of my travels and adventures. Not even a speck. – NBC: The Story of Eustace Conway.

Eustace Conway: This is something that I have spent this much of my life upon, I don’t have that much left. If I have to die for this, I don’t mind. – Fan of Eustace Conway: “Mountain Man” Eustace Conway Faces government shutdown.

Bill 774 & Turtle Island Primitivist Educational Camps

Eustace Conway (born Eustace Robinson Conway IV in 1961 in South Carolina) is an American naturalist and the subject of the book The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert and the subject of an early episode of the weekly radio show This American Life. He is the owner of 1,000-acre (4.0 km2) Turtle Island Preserve near Boone, North Carolina. Turtle Island educates adults and children about primitive skills and lifestyle’s and sustainable practices.

In November, 2012, Turtle Island was forced to shut down public access following notices of violation from the Watauga County Planning & Inspections Department and Appalachian District Health Department.

On June 4 2013, Bill 774 goes to Senate. The fate of Turtle Island Preserve depends on this Bill going forward.

Bill 774, if accepted by the North Carolina legislative process will give Turtle Island Preserve a lot of the relief it needs and hopefully allow them and other museums, heritage sights, schools and camps the freedom to teach about American heritage and authentic ways of living that our Industrial Civilization way of living’s regulatory system have made illegal.

House Bill 774 sponsored by Representatives Jonathan Jordan, Chuck McGrady, Pricey Harrison and Nelson Dollar, recently passed in the House, and now requires the support of the North Carolina Senate.

I hereby request North Carolina Senators and Military Base Commanders to show your support for the National Security Imperative of Educating US Citizens to urgently Learn to ‘Walk their Talk’ of ‘Supporting the Troops’, by reducing their impact (I=PAT) on their nation’s Natural Capital; by ensuring that Primitivist Educational Camps like Turtle Island (and others) stay open, by legally supporting Bill 774.

Military Appeal to American/World Citizens to ‘Walk their Talk’ of ‘Supporting the Troops’, by massively reducing their energy consumption, by – for example – “planting victory gardens, cutting down on fuel use, saving scrap metal and old rubber, sacrifices, or maybe just examples of common sense and prudent lifestyle changes.”
