The system has really made it impossible for someone to simply exist, hasnt it? I suppose I could always become some hopeless ward of the state shuffled into the urban ghettos and live off of the wages of others. It seems that dependence is rewarded yet independence is punished.
Its just so frustrating.

Remember, the government does not want you to be independent. They want you to be another sheep so you can be controlled. Best of luck to you!
