Fab story which proves that the state can't win if you find a way to use their rules against them. I am so envious of these guys who now have the ideal life away from all the crap that is modern life. Reading this story makes me feel good and starts the day off knowing that maybe the battle is not lost, but just ongoing, like all battles for freedom are.
There will always be the brainwashed group that will say that the law must be upheld and all that, but if the law is wrong, then what? What if the the law on imprisonment without legal process was not challenged, what then? We could all be imprisoned without ever being able to challenge the corrupt state. And the state is corrupt, anyone who says it is not is still brainwashed and not yet unplugged.
Why is the state corrupt? Is it corrupt because the people involved are on to too much of a good thing and don't want to loose their POWER and the MONEY. Both power and money corrupt anyone who has them, from the new manager to the president or prime minister (lower case letters deliberate). Why? becasue both power and money are like drugs, once yopu have them you want more, and if someone takes them away then the aggression starts. Look at what is happening in the world as the western countries lose control due to their own greed. They start to become agressive to get to the money and power of oil and opium.
The abuse of power is in every part of our lives, and it is just great to see one citizen win against the tide of beurocracy
