I totally know what you mean my friend. I am 30 years old and have been stuck in an office job since i left school. Staring at a computer screen for 8 hours a day, with just one hour for a break. I start work and its dark, I finish work and its dark. I commute home, get stuck in traffic, arrive and have to cook and clean, before its time for bed. What a god awful exsistance! Some people are scared about the world changing in 2012, to be honest I welcome anything which will free my from the rut which has become my life.
So let me ask you. We break down the fences and burn down the buildings of power. Then what? What do we replace everything we destroyed with? Nothing? Anarchy then? WTH kind of plan is anarchy? Reform is good but not just any reform. A lot of it's harmful.

Yes, having to work, in the sense that modern man understands it is TOTALLY UNNATURAL.
We have been rendered slaves to a machine that we didn't build or consent to and we were given no choice in the matter.
Those who can see it, see it. Those who can't are just too brainwashed by the system and have succumbed to a kind of 'Stockholm Syndrome' where they defend the abusive slavery system and even attack those who dare to talk of freedom.
But the good news is that more and more people are waking up every day to the shocking reality.

We no longer grab a hunk of land and plop down on it...it belongs to someone, and we pay or rent...we cant shoot food at the corner of our streets...it is illegal and we must pay for it (or breaking the law)...
This goes on and on. In these modern times....it the opposite that is correct.
We must work all the time mostly and primarily and get a few days here and there off, or 1 vacation if we can afford it. I work 2 jobs, volunteer for 3, and am involved in a couple hobbies...and have a wife...and a dog.
It really has become where what is the norm...is that we are supposed to work all the time for those things we think we "need'...and if we're lucky...get to rest a day or so. Unless of course we are fabulously wealthy...and I dont see that as being a reality for most...

Yeap, from monkey to a human, from human to an ant . Did you know that a total mass of all ants on the planet is not smaller than total mass of all humans?

The entire world financial system is designed to keep us in debt and keep us working at meaningless menial jobs.
When you figure out how to break free from the endless debt and work cycle life gets better.

Yes if u went out in the boonies and built a house, farm etc...wanted to be away from everything u cant. You would get a little visit from the IRS wanting their money for living on THIER (as they claim) land, just about every single piece of land is owned by governments or billionaires. We all work to make a living but to also make our country better if no one barely worked our country would be lookin like india with beat up shacks but on that note i havent seen anything great come out of this country (usa) in the last 10 years its like were stuck with wars/economy crisis' ...doesnt seem like america is moving forward in the world as we used to
