    Freedom is roof over the head.
    Take the Gypsies, for example.
    They build their own huts in a wasteland. They steal electricity, and they have running water.
    Clever people do not expect consent from the authorities.
    You do not need it.

    I think educating kids (and improving their living situation/resulting mental issues) is the best place to start, definitely. Once you're that far outside society it's really hard/impossible to find your way back.
