Once you make your everyday life 'cost' little to no money in dollars, then you have performed an integral act of dissent.
This has been promoted by many other ppl including myself.
The term that has been coined is "starve the beast".
Basically you withdraw as much as you can from their system,
and find other like minded individuals to do likewise.
The key points of survival:
1) Knowledge - knowing how to do and upkeep all 5.
2) Self defense - defend against 2 and 4 leg predators
3) Shelter - in extreme climate can die in less than a day
4) Water - 3 days is the limit usually
5) Food - its last cause you can go many days without it
Anything beyond this is just comfort, such as transportation.
Seeing the difference between wants and needs.
You need the 5 I listed, things you want are like:
Boat, car, bike, RV, big screen TV, satellite TV, cable TV,
expensive clothes, jewelry, tattoo's, cell phone [for most ppl],
swimming pools, hot tubs, churches, sports stadiums,
school buildings, and much more.
All of these things were not used in the past at some time.
For the religious ppl supposedly jesus taught ppl on the side of a hill.
The trillions spent on war and sports would go a long way to making
the earth a better place.
Religion brings in huge amounts of money and pays no taxes
and yet we tax the poor on their food, totally pathetic.
Some states finally stopped this practice such as Texas.
Some of the taxes we pay just go to fund the tax ppl themselves.
Ie. the tax just exists to make parasitic jobs.
Licenses and fees are often just another tax.
The system is broken from top to bottom, and some ppl are sick of it
and opting out of it all.
Extreme path he took, but it shows that it can be done.
