Why fight against the system from within when you can do something much more subversive? To fight against the system is easy: you just become its opposite and do stuff that goes against that system. But then you subvert the person that you are, because you are still defined by that system, just as its opposite.
It is far more subversive to be who you are and live your own life, especially if the system is somehow antagonistic to these. Even better when you can doing it legally, in accordance with the system’s rules. The old becomes effortlessly obsolete, and the new grows in it place, without moving so much as a revolutionary finger!
Creating something new seems so much more appealing than destroying the old, doesn’t it? 😉
