    essentially.

    Which is a great one. But your prescription is lacking, since for many in this nation and elsewhere, to disconnect from the system means:

    1. No food
    2. No heat
    3. No shelter
    4. No health care

    In short, death to you and your family.

    It's fine if you live on unincorporated land that you own in the exurbs of middle America where you've got enough soil to plant a garden, enough rain to grow one, enough trees to build a house, and the hammer and saw to do it with.

    How would you suggest the millions of residents of NYC, or San Fran, or Chicago pull out of the system? More than half of the world's population is now an urban population.

    Stop going to work and to the store and then... what?
