"Tents. They symbolize not needing the system, being out from under the system. Tenting debunks the myth that you need to be a homeowner, landowner, white picket fence owner, to survive and be a legitimate person. It represents a rejection of the American myth. Tents are a representation of the intense growing desire for self-sustainability. When your population starts looking to themselves to provide their own food, shelter, entertainment, life, etc. how do you control them, aside from beating them back into the mold they’ve morphed out of? Tents don’t have cable TV. Tents don’t have mortgage payments."
