I think 2017 is exponentially worse than when you made this point. I'd like to add that folks likely make fun of it largely because they lack the courage and conviction to follow that style of life. I know I want to live like that. I have since i was a child. I'm one of the many that lack the courage to leave everything else behind to have it.

I cannot think of a better death that one following by the courage and conviction to pursue the life in your dreams. If this is my only life then I feel I've wasted it following those things in front of me instead of those things I always had dreams of being.

Adams was pushed to this extreme and brilliant enough to eventually realize that everything that mattered was in the world to which he retreat; utterly free.
