What does it take to create a new society?
Thoreau went to the woods in 1845, supported by friends and family. The result was Walden, published in 1854, and ever since a monument to free living, spiritual discovery, and social experimentation.
And what of Amanda? She has gone, not into the woods, but into the internet. Like Thoreau, she finances the operation by direct support from friends and family. Leverged, of course, but she does offer to cook dinner for close supporters.
Oh, and Palmer lives in Boston.
