If you really are a "live and let live" type libertarian and you want to be closer the "vortex" just go to any city small or large. There you will
find an overtaxed often dependent fat end of the bell curve with little ivory-tower fascists at the top who can't enough of telling you what to do
and how to do the few things they are gracious enough to allow you to do above you and a never ending stream of addicts, vagrants and the lethargic to
sponge off of you.
Then there's the constant big-brothering, the ongoing crusade to kill all small business, scapegoating and extortion of any business successful
enough to be called "big business" (though there are some pretty dinky business where I am being labeled as "big" and subsequently raked over the
coals by the mass-dependents) usually all under the shadow of "big-ed" making billions in interest off of its endowment and charging hundreds of
thousands for the tuition of the children of the privileged who go on to bolster and support the ignorant crusade of the lowest common denominator to
be supplied with unearned free material goods and board from cradle to grave from its 99.999% of the time bankrupt local government (bankrupt because
of the ridiculous dependence-farming it practices).
This is every "city." Just pick one. It will put you on the front lines as it were always in a position of defense. Always attacked from all sides,
above and below. You get to have your spirit drained, not always as fast as your wallet, everyday until you break down and become one of the
dependents to live in ignorant bliss concerning yourself with whether or not local kids "tagging" is art and the status of Tibets independence
rather than the overspending local government increasing your tax burden to fill the pockets of it's mobster special interest cronies or the fact
that every afternoon for the past decade somebody you know is either mugged or killed. Because a free Tibet is far more important.
In case you haven't guessed I despise cities will every fiber in my being. I'm also libertarian to the hilt and an intense fiscal conservative. The
city hates me and I hate it.
I'm moving to a podunk town in New Hampshire this weekend. I can't wait.
