View Full Version : Do You Think It Is Possible To Live Free From The Bonds of Society?

I think it is somewhat possible. I wrote an article about it:

How To Live A Simple Life Out Of A Backpack (http://hubpages.com/_mandrake1975hub/hub/How-To-Live-Out-Of-A-Backpack)

The thing is, that I don't think it is reasonable or even sane to think that one could live completely free from society, but they most certainly could become a minimalist and not have to rely on society in any way, shape, or form. They could be completely independent, I think, but there will always be a clash of civilizations, so one would have to "look like" they were still apart of said society.

I have been kicking around this idea for a long long time.

Your opinionns?

Human beings are social creatures...if you did then you would go insane.

Actually, it's very true...extreme minimalism. I have a mental illness (that's what 'they' call it), and was so agoraphobic and so anti-social, for two years I never left the house. I didn't have the computer on, the phone was unplugged, the shades were drawn, the only contact I had to the outside world was the TV...absolutely no contact until the police took me away and put me in a hospital and condemned the house.
There's also a case of an extreme minimalist (can't remember his name), but he supposedly did away with everything, even food for days on end for years. He got so distant for months he lived only in his bathtub with no human contact.
