ANDREA ZITTEL, SMALL LIBERTIES 

This is the term I use to describe the way that we create small forms of personal freedom. There are so many bureaucracies controlling every facet of our lives, that I believe the only way that most of us can feel free is by shrinking down to slip between the cracks of larger systems and authorities.

Once I thought that owning the place where I lived was the ticket to autonomy and that once I had a home I could do whatever I wanted to it - and inside of it. It would be like owning my own country where I was in charge of everything. Now I pay a monthly mortgage, property tax, home insurance, utility bills, and I have four telephone numbers.

I have come to believe that owning things actually makes us less free. Even if you own land you can’t really build a structure on it without “permission” from an external authority. Though I think that you can probably camp on it for a short period of time ...
