Start expanding your awareness. There a lot of youth in our country who feel the same way and are beginning to find alternatives to this slavery. All you need is food and shelter.
I have no problem at all with your attitude as long as you pay for yourself. Nobody owes you a free ride. What really pisses ME off is people who are "on disability" (and then they snicker) or are able-bodied but get on some sort of "assistance" program paid by me. But if you can perfect the 4 hour work week instead of the 40, my blessings to you.
I think we should start communities where each person is responsible for a specific task related to the survival of the whole. I would have no problem working if the outcome is betterment of humanity.
I feel like I'm doing something that is serving the world in a way that matters--and the benefits and pay are decent, which is nice. The only thing that frustrates me is that I don't have as much time as I want to pursue my creative writing; although I do manage to carve out some space for it. But also, a lot of my experiences I have at my job enhance my creative life and make me a better, deeper writer.
Start off by saving 10k, move to a medical marijuana state. Build grow room, read a couple growing books educate yourself on growing. Next step is to quit your job. Yay!! Mission accomplished! Now you can spend minimal time day or night doing a simple hobby of growing plants, it's actually fun and you can do it easily. Now for the sticking it to the man part. All the money you accumulate is non taxable. That's right no more taxes! Next step is to sign up for Medicaid and food stamps. Jackpot ! Technically on paper you have zero income, so eligibility shouldn't be a problem. Yup kiss my ass affordable care act. Free food, free healthcare, no taxes. Free as a bird retired at 25. No more slavery. If you wanna squeeze em for every penny collect unemployment on your way out. BOOM!
