The less dependence you have on the State, as well as their manifest, declared State of Things, the healthier, wealthier, and more peaceful, productive, loving, and naturally wise a human you’ll likely be. But can we operate in any meaningful capacity while practicing strict detachment from All that Apparently Is? For most of us, some kind of external authority informs, disrupts, and intrudes into every aspect of modern life. Is it possible to simply turn it away, shut it down, and turn it off? Can we, and would we want to accept full responsibility for ourselves?
Not likely. Not in any hurry, at least, not without significant and terrifying disruption to our ideas of normality, safety, and security. Not without shaking the foundation of all that generations of relative prosperity and abundance have entrained us into relying upon.
