I think that to the greatest extent practical (where ever that mind fall) it would be very interesting to experiment with ways of disengaging from the controls of the government and society by cutting back any and all spending that is not vitally necessary.

If you are the sea faring type, some of those yachts can be pretty comfortable (expensive, but a modest one will be cheaper than a house) and if you dont like where you are, just sail somewhere else, and dont forget good old international waters where no one can get you (well not legally anyway).
