From a financial standpoint, nothing is getting any better, and in fact things are getting worse. Greece has defaulted, and today they owe a massive debt payment. We’ll see if they make it.
Other European countries are heading towards the brink, even though they’re aware of whats coming the powers that be in the EU have been unable to stop the trains momentum towards the cliff.
Things here aren’t any better. Inflation has skyrocketed and shows no signs of stopping. The value of the dollar continues to decline. Gas prices are ridiculous.
Unemployment isn’t getting any better, wages are stagnant, and houses just aren’t selling. And my favorite … the Fed is pretty much the only group interested in buying US Treasuries, which means we’re basically holding our own debt.
Someone tell me how on earth we can buy our own debt like this and have it actually mean something other than exponential hyperinflation resulting in a currency collapse?
On the food front, we have the government telling people they can’t grow food in their own yard. That it’s illegal to have a garden.
Then you have folks with guns raiding small suppliers of organic food such as raw milk because they’re somehow dangerous. These folks are facing more jail time than they would if they robbed a bank or a car. How does that make sense?
And to top it all off, every mainstream supplier of seeds is committed to providing us franken foods that our bodies don’t know what to do with. These foods make animals sick, let alone humans.
The same food conglomerates are feeding the livestock that we eat that junk, and it makes them sick. And we eat them. The nutrient profile of commercially raised meat isn’t even remotely close to that of home grown meat.
So what do we do about it?
First, start building financial independance. Start small, and work at it regularly. Consider picking up some skills that you can leverage into side income. Start a businesss.
Bottom line, do something. You need alternative income streams, stored money, and a plan in case you lose your job.
Second, have food, water, and household goods stored. Target two months of water, six or more months of food, and enough TP to build a paper mache castle.
Third, grow something. Get good non GMO seeds and start growing stuff that you eat. Practice here is essential. Don’t expect to be able to start growing stuff with no issues if there’s a problem with the food distribution system or something. It won’t happen.
What are you going to do about it?
