Mark, this might be true in a lot of cases… once you have liberty, you just go on living your life like you always did.
For my part — my background is in the sciences, and I worked in a technical field for 17 years. I know that our energy needs today can be met with minimal disruption and at nearly zero cost in the long run… I know that living comfortably off-grid is easy if the government doesn’t get in the way… I know that healthy foods can be produced in relatively small local areas, negating the need for distribution costs… I know…
Unfortunately, it is our modern society based on big companies and government interference that keep us from advancing socially, academically, spiritually, artistically. Yes, I am anti-capitalist, anti-fascist. There are much better ways, more cooperative ways.
That is why I work for independence on as many levels as possible. With continued improvements in technology, advances in medicine, learning, art, mental health, and spirituality will be possible.
