Re: Society; and how to separate yourself from it
Actually, it's been tried, and it failed. The United States of America was supposed to be the freedom you're speaking of for any and all. However, people still needed someone to run things, otherwise there would only be chaos and no order. For a while it was working; people could go out, find unclaimed land, and live their lives completely seperate from slavery. Over time, that slowly started changing. The better pieces of land were taken, the government started charging taxes, and small towns turned into cities.
All is not lost though; one can still strike out deep into wilderness areas in the US and just started living the way they want to. No one will ever bother you, they can't even find you. Of course, the government knows this will be so extremely rare nowdays because you'd be cutting yourself off from fresh water supply, electricity, sewers and indoor plumbing and of course media. Also hospitals and such wouldn't be around plus you wouldn't have many friends...and have fun trying to get a spouse to do this with you. Because it's so hard to leave everything behind, it's not expected for someone to ever do this, or at least not many.
The amish are nicely cut off, and I've been on some of their farms which are awesome; I was working with an Amish carpenter...well, two. The second one was even further out. Very nice people, and way out there you can see the stars at night like never before...it truly does feel free.
There's also one more option, you can be a backpacker. They don't settle down at all and rarely stay in one place for long. They basically do odd jobs for anyone that will hire them for a day or two, then they take off for another place and do the same. It's an even harder life, but not completely without modern conveniences.
Other than that stuff, there is no way to cut yourself off from society. Everyone is a slave unless you're a slave owner...and there aren't many of them.
