If you take your family into the wild and make yourself a farm, ironically enough, you will need less man hours of work to set yourself up and be productive than most people running two jobs already give. And it will be healthier to boot.

You know, I watched Zeitgeist earlier, and was mildly impressed, until the end of the program.
The commentator asks what it is that we can do to prevent the international bankers and money lenders from taking complete control over us, and then answers with 5 points. One of these points is to quit one's job if they are working for one of the multinational corporations.
My problem with this resides in the very real fact that most of us just can't quit our jobs, and go protest. We all need to have money to sustain ourselves. How does the speaker expect us to supply our families with the necessities, if we have no money. No reasonable alternatives were suggested, in my opinion.
While the movie has some very interesting facts in there for consideration, it fails to illustrate what we can REALLY do to stop or prevent those in power from taking anymore freedoms away from us.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but that began in 1913 with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act. The commercial banks here and abroad have been in control of the American economy ever since then.

eginning of the privatization of the Treasury Department by the global banks has started.
My opinion, for what it's worth on THAT would be that we PROBABLY need localized community economy

I have always found that revenge that is slow and methodical usually is more rewarding in the end. Boycott Christmas not the religious or spiritual Christmas. Boycott the Massive pottash Christmas. The Retailers make nothing off the merchadise you buy at garage sales.
