It would be preferable if everyone was prepared, because there'd be less struggle within the crowd so to speak.
At our current velocity as a society we're abruptly nearing the end of unsustainability. We're running full speed headlong off a cliff, and like
Wile E. Coyote taught us, you just don't know when or where you're gonna land, and if whatever you were standing on before it fell is gonna land.
It's just inevitable at this point that we either cease the unsustainable way we've tread TODAY (it's already too late, but we could still make the
future better if we act now) or continue down the path we've charted and completely destroy the only place we exist in the known universe.
More and more people are realizing it, even the blind see the light when things are as blatantly obvious as they are now. Global war for control of
the last of the resources that keep the current machination afloat, the earth is dying, fish, frogs, birds, as well as other species dwindling and
becoming extinct. Police state, where the cops are military, only difference is they drive Ford Explorers instead of humvees. 95% of the people
own 5% of the stuff. Do the math. Try to rationalize that to someone who uses logic, as to WHY anyone, even on this overcrowded and toxic planet,
should not have sufficient food, clothing, and shelter. It's obvious we're plowing headlong into some form of disastrous collapse and people have
known for a while. Now they're finally through shock, denial, acceptance, anger, and are taking action to cover their own asses.
I applaud anyone who truly prepares in sensible ways, (a diesel generator for a 50" plasma screen in your "shelter" is not sensible) as there is
definitely cause to be prepared. That, and if everyone was prepared to live for a time independent of the system, it'd be a lot easier for people
to cease serving the system when the system fails to serve the system.
You know why the founding fathers of America overcame their struggle? Because they weren't worried about being scolded for showing up 5 minutes
late to their anonymous little boxlike cage by some douche who probably lied and BS'd his way to a position of running the field slaves. No, the
colonies weren't dependent on china for supplies, or dependent on oil from other regions. They depended on what they produced domestically so to
speak, locally. They didn't get fruit from ecuador, or anything that they couldn't survive without from anywhere.
OTOH, if everyone does remain dumb and just waits for the end while sitting on the couch, natural selection, survuval of the fittest, willing
volunters for voluntary depopulation?
