Well not only did they have the fortitude they had the FREEDOM to produce for themselves what they needed.
The freedom to own cheap land, the freedom to breed their farm animals and drink and eat from said animals as they pleased.
In the depression era there were a good part of the US population still using horses as transportation. If you needed to get to "work" or go
somewhere you didn't have to worry about car insurance, affording gasoline, or even buying a car. If you needed an extra car you just bred a new
one. Life was not just different back then it was MORE FREE! That's what people fail to realize. We all sit here and oooh and ahhh over
technology........but this same technology is simply a means to enslave and control us all. The car is a perfect example. The US population can't
go anywhere or do anything with their car. But you can't "make" your own car. You have to pay someone else to get a car, pay someone else be able
to drive it. Car insurance, taxes, fees, etc. 21st century life is devoid of liberty and freedom and it's getting worse.
