In a free state

I'm a great fan of the Free State Project. It's lovely that even rightwing nutters think the best way to change the world is to form a commune and ignore it.

What particularly tickles me is how much government these dudes who hate government indulge in. They have a page full of policies. I note that if you promote bigotry, you can be expelled.

Hang on! That's not very free, now is it?

You're free to do as you wish so long as we approve. Man, that sounds just like every other place on the planet.

Society does suck. It does need changing. But here's the thing. It's us. It doesn't stop being us if we turn our back on it.
