If a janitor is paid the same as a surgeon, who is going to want to go through all the school necessary to operate on people?


Communism fail. In a communist society all people aren't paid the same. Read some communist theory then come back.

Yeah. Now we know what they're trading to get all the stuff they need to survive.

That's a pretty cool idea. I couldn't do it permanently, but I'd try it for a week.

This is not living sustainably. Taking donations and stealing thrown away food is not self-sufficient. These people are parasites, living off of people who do spend the money to import food from farm lands. Just because they don't spend money doesn't mean that the rest of the world could take a lesson.
Also, the reason why communism will ALWAYS fail is because there's no incentive to rise above mediocrity. There's no reason to be a doctor or engineer or ANYTHING that requires effort, study, and thought. If a janitor is paid the same as a surgeon, who is going to want to go through all the school necessary to operate on people?

And before you point out that I said "no-energy-input", at the time I was referring to no electricity.

Your basic RO unit will need 2.5 kWh/m3 to run. So to make 1000 L (1 m3) of water, with one kWh = 3.6 million Joules, you require 2.5 kWh or 9 million Joules. RO is magnitudes more efficient than distillation, and works in a fraction of the time, hence distillation is inefficient.

RO removes salt. How is something that is "no-energy-input" "horribly inefficient"? It's just slow without good engineering.

RO isn't filtration. If you have a community their size of around 20 people, each needing roughly 1.8 liters of water per day, you essentially need 36 liters of water per day. To distill water, you need to boil it. Assuming ambient temp of 23 degrees C, you need to raise the water's temp by 80 degrees to boil (at sea level). The rule of thumb regarding turning the whole liter of water to steam is 10 times the time it takes it to reach a boil. So the equation looks like: 80 x 4200 x 1 x 10 (80 degrees x 4200 Joules to raise one kg of water one degree x 1 kg x 10 to make it all steam). So you need 3.36 million Joules to distill one liter of water, and after you make 36 L, you need 1.21 x 10^8 J all together.

Oh what fun, let's live like slum dwellers for a while.

People who have to live like that tend to see it as something to escape from, not aspire to.

But they don't seem to be doing any harm and I wouldn't want to see then hassled for no good reason. Let them get on with it.

Sand filtrationz how do it workz???

It works by separating out foreign material that is larger than the pore size created by the sand. Unfortunately, no kind of filtration can remove dissolved particles like salt. If the type of sand you used was SiO2, some of the Na would adhere to it, but not enough to remove the 3.5% or so salt content of sea water. The only effective method of free, no-energy-input desalination is distillation, which is horribly inefficient.

"@ morimacil123 - this planet is 2/3rd water. There is no shortage. That myth is just another way of squeezing the populace."
yes, 2/3rds of the planet is indeed water, but it is mostly saltwater.
If you were to take showers and baths in saltwater (without using harmful chemicals as soap or shampoo ofc), that would not be an issue.
Go swimming in the sea all day, its not an issue.

The issue is when you take clean, drinkable water (which half the human population lacks), and then use hundreds of liters of that to clean yourself, and pollute it at the same time, so its afterwards no longer drinkable.

NO! This not a an answer, this is being lazy. People have been there and then they progressed because it's sh*t.
And you are not independent at all, you still need clothes, medical care, transportation, police, firefighters....

Thankfully 99.9999'% of society does not live like that or we'd be totally fooked.

You need a kidney transplant. Oh, I'll stop by the free organs table and borrow a blunt knife.

So stylishly homeless is something to admire now?
Something to aspire to?

We are doomed.
