It wasn’t I who didn’t “hold out much hope for Jeffrey,” it was Jeffrey who didn’t hold out much hope for Jeffrey. He unfortunately believed what his friends told him, that he was crazy to want more than a chance to join the rat race. Freedom isn’t “a place,” it’s another way to go besides “get a job, get some money, get ahead.” This is what’s explored in the next book in the series, Beyond Civilization.
