My dream is freedom *with* civilization. I could have freedom without civilization by just getting in a boat and sailing to the middle of the ocean and then sitting there. That does not seem like much of a life to me, and I doubt it does to most of y'all either. I am a pioneer, but not the Conestoga wagon type. I'm a Geeksteader - it's ok if the power goes out every now and then, but when it's on, it needs to be able to power my computer and our internet link. I want community, not solitude, trade, not self-sufficiency, and high-tech even while pioneering. So moving to the third world would lose me civilization, which would have to be compensated for by greatly increased freedom.
