Splendid isolation?

Document Actions

Dorothy English said it as plain as possible: "I want my land to be mine, to do with whatever I want" (HCN, 7/24/06: Taking Liberties).

Community concerns enter in not. I live in isolation on this planet and I don’t want to be obstructed by war, famine, pestilence, nearby neighbors, or global warming. It is my piece of the Earth and what I do won’t be influenced by anyone else.
