Opting Out: An Introduction – Pacific Standard: The Science of Society

I wish I could opt out of the lower 48 and disappear into the Yukon. Endless suburbia, the cold cities, even the subsidized rural communities graying out, I don’t care for it.

One day I’ll opt out, fire up my bacteria-powered solar panels and chill for real in my beer bottle geodesic dome house.

Revolution? it’s always the same old system. Opting out, living off the land like Jerimiah Effing Johnson, son!
