    We've owned our own tiny business for a very long time. I have some property in the industrial part of town. No one cares what we do here. We've set up a little community, five households now. We charge each household a tiny rent, enough to buy our groceries. We pay utilities. We have a garden, which we share. It's very peaceful here.

    We understand that we don't change the world by being hobbyists, but we have changed this little part of it. Yes, it is all about paring down.

    We looked at going off the grid, but so far we can't come out on it. The technology is changing rapidly, however. I don't think it'll be too long before it will become economical. At this point we're not going to become more beholden just so we can feel greener.

    Corruption is what keeps us safe and warm. Corruption is why we win. -Syriana
