In my opinion, I would take all that cash and buy things that will help you provide food water and shelter for your family and friends while it still
My wife and I built an earthship near Taos, New Mexico. This off the grid home provides all of our water, hot water, electricity, comfortable temps
and humidity and on-site sewage treatment. All it needs is some sunshine and some rain landing on its roof. We are tickled pink with how well it
works! The only problem is we do NOT have a way to grow a nutritionally complete diet on our property. We only get about 12 inches of rain annually
and it comes towards the end of the growing season. However we do get ALL of our drinking water and wash water from the rain that lands on the
As long as we had a lifetime supply of food, the global monetary economy as we know it could go kiss off!
Who needs a global monetary economy? Who needs money when you can be your own water company, your own power company, your own food production system?
It's the people, stupid. Start being good neighbors. If you do not want to grow your own food, empower a neighbor to do it for you. Use that cash to
"grow" a mini-farmer. Use that money to buy him a copy of "How to Grow More Vegetables" by John Jeavons (see: www.growbiointensive.org...
It describes a "no kidding", "for real" sustainable mini-farming method that enhances the soil AND produces much more food per unit land area than
conventional "violent warfare farming". All you need, pretty much, is a straight edge shovel and a garden fork.
If you are fortunate enough to live in an area that has at least two inches of precip per month during the growing season, you can start growing food
right away AND enhance the beauty and aliveness of the soil. If not, use that cash to buy water storage tanks for domestic water and pond liners for
crop water storage. If you are in a very dry location, get that pond covered so it doesn't evaporate away leaving you a pile of salt. We have 4,800
gallons of domestic water storage at our place and, so far, we have not run out. It is amazing how much water is available from your roof.
Let food be the new currency. Let the dollar collapse but don't get sucked in by the "global monetary economy". It is the work of Satan. Learn to
work together with your neighbors to create your own food water and shelter and health. Let medicinal herbs. Grow your own vitamin C. Don't get
vaccinated! God only knows what is in that crap. Vitamin C taken in units of grams NOT milligrams per day will provide good health. Give up health
insurance and anything that requires "money". If Blue cross won't take eggs or broccoli for payment, maybe you shouldn't deal with them. "Health
care" is the work of the devil anyway. If you ate whole foods that you or your neighbor grew and took vitamin C, you don't need a doctor. Use that
cash to learn first aid for inevitable injuries or have a neighbor train to be a local medic.
What if the water stopped? What if the power went out? what if the gas line stopped? What if the sewer stopped? Find sustainable solutions and use
your cash to implement that while you still can.
And don't be afraid of death. Birth inevitably leads to death. Learn how to die with peace and grace. That's a whole discussion in itself. See:
