The price of freedom (again)?

The Guardian carries an excerpt (“My Free and Easy Life,” Jan. 2) from a book by a 26-year old woman who lost her media job and decided to leave the empty life she was leading – to live money-free, squatting in empty buildings and scavenging for food and basic belongings. It all sounds very attractive (at least for someone without a family), pity it’s so aesthetically challenging.
