I didn't see minimum_wage's comment that way. It's neigh impossible to escape the system legally. To have a home and food, you have to partake. To the extent that you don't want to partake, you are often a threat, or at the least, a nuisance to be minimized.

I don't share wage's politics specifically, but fuck, there is so much wrong with the what this article illustrates and the fucking defense bill that just passed. We are all in this system whether we like it or not, and it's full of hypocrisy.

I want to change the system, and I have my own strategy. wage recently posted about strategy, that doesn't seem to be hers specifically.

I'm just not sure if hypocrisy is all bad.

At any rate, I'm following you both for good reason.
