I couldn't agree more! S&F for you!
Whatever happens, I doubt it will turn out like TPTB might be planning. To the aware observer, it's already clear they are panicking (media ignoring Ron Paul, him getting massive support, occupy, people waking up, etc.) If TPTB are panicking, what does that say about their plans? It's obvious: they're probably won't work like designed.

If I had to guess Pred, I would say that you are a western Canadian and not an easterner. I would also assume that you live or grew up in a smaller town or community. I grew up with small town ideologies, and when I have children there will be no or little chance of them being raised in a city.
You seem to presume a lot which can have a down side, sometimes benefit of the doubt can help foresee sinister acts. I do admire your ability to give faith onto strangers though, it is something that society has lost from the horrific new stories. Though, the analogy of helping a fallen citizen portrays the majority of society now, most wouldn't help, from my experience anyways. I live in a town were the population is primarily aging seniors to the point we are facing difficulties in providing enough housing and care givers. Today's youth seem to have no problem barging in front of, or cutting off these seniors instead of respectfully letting them proceed first. With my upbringing I feel obligated to call out the youngsters by telling them to respect their elders. Usually this results in them disrespecting me, their elder.
I can't really get mad at the child or teen as it isn't really their fault for not knowing better. It is their parents for not raising their children and instead letting television programs and school do it for them. Only problem is now is this, you almost can't blame the parents. They are so enslaved in trying to provide the necessary basics for their family that they literally don't have the time.
If you think that when SHTF society will remain civilized, think again. Right now we are not in a SHTF scenario and we already have staggering amounts of theft and crime. If more people aren't able to supply the basics for their families what do you think they will resort to?
I am all for the prosperity of our societies and civilization just not with the manipulated self loathers. I for one would rather be a realist than a dreamer. It follows more the task at hand or living in the moment scenario, if I dream I am wealthy when I wake up it doesn't put food on the table.
