Generalizations like this frighten me.  Here at Dreamtime Ive seen an 
endless stream of nomadic anarchist types who live outside the money 
system & it is precisely because they do have skills that they are able 
to live successfully outside of the system.  They don't have a lot of 
capital because they make a decision to not work for the man, pay 
taxes, resist hierarchical structures, etc....   & I remember a few 
years ago before I got my first real "job" (at the ripe age of 42), I 
was making more money than anyone else living here & I was making maybe 
$4K.    mIEKAL
