Jail Break

People who still think they are free just haven't ventured far enough to discover the end of their leash.

Writer and futurist, Robert Anton Wilson, knew about the illusion of freedom. He did not live long enough to see the most recent indignities done to the supposed rights and freedoms of humanity, but would not have been surprised.

“On a planet that increasingly resembles one huge Maximum Security prison", he said back in the day, "the only intelligent choice is to plan a jail break.” 

Every decent jail break requires a plan. Preferably one with a high degree of success.

The plan that yields the best chance of success is the practice of simple living. When you have reduced your desires to only that which is essential, beautiful, and beneficial, the system can have no hold on you.

Or less of a hold. 

Prison Planet is so all-pervasive it is difficult to completely escape the grasp of its slimy dastardly digits.

However, when one discovers that it is possible to do away with about 80% of consumer life and still have everything one needs to be healthy and content, total escape is imminent.

The intelligent choice is freedom, and the way to get it is to live as simply and happily as possible.

That's the jail break.
