I think we have less than a year to politically turn around the worsening morale in the west..
Because I believe lack of morale is going to ignite people into social breakdown and economical ruin..
Then another year or two as things begin to collapse into chaos..
That's the current real looming Sit-x.
I can't possibly be the only person that has noticed 'the average Joe' is working simply to exist..
How many of you,when you work out your bills,have realised that..
If you took away the cost of going to work..You have barely more than you do NOT working at all..
If you took away all the taxes and costs connected with travelling only.
Your MOT.car payments,car tax,insurance,maintenance,fuel costs..there goes about a quarter?..
Take off Tax and Nat insurance.. there goes a third.?.
Take off benefits you would receive if you weren't working.. a third?
The way costs are increasing people are going to want their 'time' instead..
If you work 40hrs a week and you have nothing to show then you would rather stick with nothing in the first place and HAVE 'your time'...
Now of course if most people decided to up and quit,then there goes the economy..what next?? Join the army for the looming war with Iran?
Get DRAFTED into the looming war with Iran?
There's already signs of desperation across the Atlantic with gas theft..Of course that was always going to happen..Make something valuable enough
and there'll always be people willing to take it from you..
What do you think will happen when FOOD starts getting to that kind of price?
There's just not enough around for the world population level so there's only two course of action available ..and you can bet your butt they are
being discussed behind closed doors..
Find a way to produce more food or start de-population plans.. Wars are pretty good for that.
This is,of course a totally self inflicted problem..Greed,Gluttony,Avarice..
Sounds pretty Biblical huh?
Well that is exactly what appears to be looming..War,economic disaster,poverty,starvation... That looks pretty Biblical to me too..
Get your act together and get with the self sustainance program.
Don't get yourself into a position where you have to rely on others.
Get used to being without your 'luxuries' as often as you can..They're really worthless.
STOP pandering to all the war-mongers and fat cats in office..Your hard work is just making them richer.
Start taking some time out to appreciate the natural things around you..That's what is going to keep you alive soon enough..
Best of luck everyone.
Times are going to get tough for the unprepared.
