A good deal of necessary technology is already in place and functioning. The Internet with satellite, fiber optics and cell technology already provide what was not available to rural dwellers even as recently as the 1980s - communication with the outside world in real time for a reasonable price. So you need not live in total cultural purgatory if you live outside the major population centers.
I believe there is in actuality just one more breakthrough necessary for our freedom. Finding a super conductor material that functions at room temperature will change the world as we know it. Making a habitat in the middle of nowhere is not difficult. We put up a shack, drill for some water and dig a hole for the other business. The problem is power to run the devices we have come to love and depend on to live comfortably in the modern world. The grid only goes so far and the farther it goes the more expensive it is to get you the electrons you so covet after the loss from wire resistance.
Then one day one of you clever humans invents some resistance free wire, gets it into the marketplace before the government and energy magnates can kill you and everything changes. There has already been a revolution in solar panels that greatly improves the efficiency and cost ratio with traditional energy sources. Still the problem remains that it is never sunny at night. But with a super conductor wire electron "donut" electricity could be stored during the day resistance free virtually forever then drawn off as needed to power appliances at night. It could be stored to run an electric car for free. That means we can live as far away as we like from the urban centers yet still live a comfortable life except for one restriction. You can only live but so far from the jobs which mostly remain in the cities. So about 50 or a 100 mile is pretty much the limit to commute.
This would not be a problem since super conductors would permit travel inexpensively at incredible rates of speed. It could be possible to live in rural West Virginia for example but work in London. Also many jobs will move to the boonies with the people. How many of those jobs will depend greatly on what our masters do in the present. If they continue to terrorize us as a method to control us, especially if they continue to escalate their terror campaigns, then people will move to the sticks no matter what the accommodations just to survive the holocaust. The banker morons are probably too unbred to understand this so be prepared for more shenanigans from them. I'm already living agrarian and do not ever plan to live in the city again. I feel that parents who raise their kids in today's American cities are endangering them greatly. One more big hit in an American city and it's sayonara urban property values. Parents will grab their kids and head for the hills. They will never return either.
Within twenty years of the creation of that magic wire interstellar space travel will be possible. The farther out we go the more difficult it is for our oppressors to control us and milk us for labor. In reality, if you are living 100 miles outside of the city today then you are relatively free and at liberty to live your life as you see fit. There is no money in it for the banker cartel to control these people. Humans know already that the farther away they go from the cities the freer they become. They just don't have the energy to live there yet. Once they do these banker maggots better be offering a sweeter deal than the death, deprivation and mayhem served up du jour.
