eternally. It's a question of which way it'll swing, though, or how long
each swing of the continuum lasts.
There'll be interesting wrinkles to iron out if it does go through (ie.

the plan to escape with one's llamas to Canada when it comes down to being
monitored within an inch of one's livestock-related-life in the U.S.)...
I agree - keep on with the "small" work of planting and all... though this
society's insistence on large and cumbersome governance is troubling...
