@mir_btc I was working limited hours, avoiding offices and ignoring most of the rat race long before I heard of Bitcoin. As did the lucky few Romans and Greeks who could afford to (most humans were slaves back then).
Part of it is luck (having the right skill set at the right time), but plenty of others have more skill and do work full time in dreadful jobs. So at least in part it's a choice.
@sjors I agree, it's partly a choice in most of the cases. Plus, bitcoin it's an unprecedented opportunity for many to have even more freedom of choice
