      ...but terribly inconveniencing - more inconveniencing than almost anyone would want to do.  No phone, no internet, no banking, no vehicle registration, no common carrier travel (rail, air, bus), can't partake in government programs (SS, Medicare, unemployment, etc.).  You get the picture.

      Basically, there is no way out unless you want to go all-in disappeared.

          Never has so much been taken from so many by so few for so long...
