But as much as I agree I have a wife and a child to care for so I really have no better way to go about keeping my kid fed and clothed than participating in the system.
I will say this though: as much as I dislike the system for all of the reasons you mention I do not know for sure that the freedom of the woods and the day to day life of travel and survival would be enough to supplant the love I have for my wife and kid.
Sure, that is most certainly part of “their” trap no doubt but, despite that, there is something to be said for the love of family and the comforts of home even if they happen to lay in the long shadow that is cast by the corruption and mundane routine of participating in the meat grinder of hollow 9-5 work. I think so anyway.
