  •  Actually, he said "stop participating". That (3+ / 0-)

    would include not voting.  He also specifically said stop working.  Hmmm.  Wonder how many of us could survive that?  

    I like the idea of opting out of many things, but I don't see it as realistic to anticipate that the huge mass of people needed for this to be effective will give up their incomes.  We're not exactly set up to be self sufficient these days.  Even if we could "live off the land", we have to pay taxes or we lose our homes.  

    And let's not forget that he hasn't followed his own advice, or he wouldn't have a computer and internet to write diaries on.

    Theories are so easy compared to reality.
