As someone who's seriously considered becoming a subsistence farmer who lives off the grid, here's my answer: because it won't do any good. Isolating yourself from the world so that you, personally, don't contribute to certain injustices on a systematic scale is completely disempowering. One will do much more good by actually fighting
for those injustices to stop--which involves being in society, and yes, relying on society to keep you alive, even if that means you're part of it. Being in the world and
of it, as a transformative force, actually gives one a chance of accomplishing things that will actually make a difference, actually contribute to a greater good, instead of simply warding off that dang karma.
