There is enough toxicity to make me consider cashing out the 401k, selling almost everything and moving to Alaska where I buy a plot of land, build a cabin and ride out global warming.

I’d live off the land. It would be hard, very hard. But there would be no one. Just me, the timber I’m felling, nature. A bear could eat me if I’m not careful. After awhile I’d settle into that lifestyle. I’ll walk through the landscape I helped cultivate and witness the land being subdivided around me. Plot after plot being sold off to anyone with enough money because Kansas became a dust bowl last year.

I don’t know if I would totally leave to be honest. It’s not in my nature. Instead, I would start a company whose values and practices were beyond reproach. That’s just how I am. Alaska seems like a nice option though.
