Quietly, Quietly, The Revolution Arrives

Wendy McElroy - on the quiet revolution of people withdrawing from the system, ending their reliance on government, Agorism in action. [claire]

It is illegal to sell food or meals you prepare without permission. It is illegal to repair or extend your own home without government inspection. The taxman eyes barter as tax avoidance. Home businesses must be reported and income assessed. Homeschooling is under attack. And the fight to own a gun in self-protection seems never to end.

No wonder self-sufficiency is a quiet Revolution. Speaking of it leaves you vulnerable not merely to the authorities but to anyone who bears a grudge, who envies you or who simply is a righteous busybody. But a Revolution it is.
