Entry 729

Is isolation a valid lifestyle? 
Not in the eyes of this society 
which I have tried so desperately 
to wean myself of.

Hermits are not permitted to live in peace.

You cannot stake a claim on stolen land 
without first serving your term in the system — 
agree to their terms to earn your pittance 
so you may pay your lifesavings 
for a plot of land: 
two and a half feet wide by eight feet long.
