    When I was in middle school,

    I want. No need to leave civilisation

    as soon as possible. All this materialism I hate it. Working to get paid to buy useless shite I hate. Working to pay for food isn't how it should be. We are DESIGNED to live in the natural world. And we did for generations. We all need to return it. Any advice tips or company?
