Got to love people who try to live their whole lives by dumpster diving.
To say "they're not down with capitalism" is a bit of an understatement. Freegans believe that any resort to the market, like buying toothpaste or gasoline or borrowing money from a bank, is evil.
I wonder what serious vegans think about freeganism. Vegans eat no animal products at all, which has a purity to it. Freegans, on the other hand, only subsist by the evil of others. They avoid waste, not the market.
Intellectual fuzziness aside, Lane Seabolt, if you're out there, this may be your calling.
