God damn it. An entire generation, pumping gas, waiting tables.
Slaves with white collars.
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes.
Working jobs we hate so we can buy # we won't need.
We are the middle children of history, men.
No purpose or place.
We have no great war.
No great depression.
Our great war is a spiritual war.
Our great depression, is our lives.
All been raised from television to believe that one day we all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars.
But we won't!
We slowly learning that fact and we are very very pissed off.

Why would some one post a truthful thread with positive real info when there is a billion posts on SHTF or 2012 or Obama,
in FACT you and the other negative people here are one of the reasons this concept seems all "too hard" and "impossible".
Oppressed people will starve, oppressed nations will live under the rule of the negative powers that rule the earth, negativity that is perpetuated by you and other here even.
Maybe because it is not positive ‘real’ info, but dreamy pie in the sky nonsense. Yes, that is how life is meant to be. But if people are oppressed it is normally at the end of a gun, or because all resources are kept from them by the regime that oppresses them, which renders them powerless. In a money system you are only capable of doing or buying anything by the amount of money you hold. As you are arguing against a post showing totally emaciated people crawling on the ground near death, I find your argument that those people can just rise up and take their power back totally facile. If you are American, you are sitting there while your country is being destroyed from within probably arguing that the fool in charge is eligible and good. So don’t talk about allowing evil to flourish and oppress. And what is amusing is that your post is the most negative so far, whilst bemoaning negativity. If you need to live in a dream who am I to say it is wrong. But change will not come from not recognising the obstacles, as all you will do is fall over them.

But, Food is NOT Free for the most part! You have to buy seeds, soil, pots, or land.
Dont talk try and talk down at me....what have you done to help out needy in your local area? Have you or your other negative nellies ever volunteered time to feed homeless?, donated clothes, gave away good condition house hold goods, food? or ever sheltered some one for free?
Rather when we see things as dreamy and un-doable the of course those things WILL be.
If you want to grow food, move to some where you can..even if that means you have to leave your cozy uptown trendy apartment...or your suburban house and mortgage...
