I am 21, living near Toronto. Over the past several years I have come to realize I am incompatible with this terrible, terrible authoritarian system under which we live, a system that condemns the masses to lives of servitude, alienation, stress, and misery. All life is one, yet this society is a cesspool of insanity. I am neither misanthropic nor cynical, but I cannot be slotted into my destined position as a bureaucratic cog in a machine of destitution, not when that machine creates so much suffering. I am very much into Buddhism/nature etc. Yes, another white suburban middle-class kid who is dissatisfied with his privilege! But I am sincere, I have been thinking more and more about alternatives. Are there an sort of communes in Ontario? I feel a little discouraged, as it seems this society is closing more and more each day, but I truly want to seek alternatives. Any advice? Much love, and thank you!
