I found this Ursula K. Le Guin quote while reading The Mushroom at the End of the World by Anna Tsing. I took a picture of it awhile ago and finally looked up the source. It comes from a lecture Le Guin gave that was later printed called "A Non-Euclidean View of California as a Cold Place to Be".

It seems obvious now, but it took reading this for it to click that I've been thinking about utopias. Joking with friends about moving off the grid, working on Petal, disgust with our political reality. I like how both the mushroom book and this lecture advocate for the rejection of a single-narrative progress driven lens. Le Guin says: "Will you choose freedom without happiness, or happiness without freedom? The only answer one can make, I think is: No."
