No Room Left

There is simply no room left for "freedom from the tyranny of government" since city dwellers depend on it for food, power, water, transportation, protection, and welfare.  Your right to live where you want, with companions of your choosing, under laws to which you agree, died in the eighteenth century with Captain Mission.  Only a miracle or a disaster could restore it.

-- William Seward Burroughs II (5 February 1914 - 2 August 1997), American novelist, essayist, social critic, painter, and spoken word performer, Cities of the Red Night (1981)
