I hear you and believe you RedNeck, as it confirms my own suspicions. Societies generally reach a peak of decadence just before their collapse. In our
current times, decadence is at an all time high, the disparity between rich and poor is wider than it has ever been. The cultural focus on wealth and
physical appearance is peaked out. All the signs are telling us that the world infrastructure is due for collapse but the weird thing is that the
financial markets are just a symptom rather than a cause. The markets are the way they are 'because' of other circumstances, based around avarice
which is actually lauded in our societies...
Didn't Gecko say that "Greed was Good"... that was supposed to be a *warning* by the film-makers, not a call to arms. Did people not 'get' the
point of why that speech was included in that film? Anyways, regardless of the effect of a film from the 80's, *everything* will go down the pan.
Maybe the governments have done a better job of hiding the reality of what is coming that I though, although, maybe this is just a tremor.
The thing is, the machine of society is generally a constant process of expansion, when it goes belly up it is because somebody somewhere has thrown a
spanner in the works. I believe that the *end game*, the destruction of the society machine as we know it, is predicated on the loss of oil supply.
However, tremors are felt from other 'components' such as financial markets. The financial markets are useful but prone to the damaging effects of
greed which cause it to overheat. This is overheating and like all machines, it will fail - component broken.
We all need to start making the changes. Yes, tell people, but don't be evangelical about it, nobody will listen. Just remove yourself from the ties
of corporate control and live as free as you can within the world we have created. It'll mean making sacrifices for some, they will have to pass by
the temptations of consumer toys (new TV, new GameBox, new car, new this, new that), but the ultimate aim is to build your own castle (figuratively
speaking) and set yourself up so that you can protect you and yours. Get involved in local projects to grow local resources, wood, food, anything that
you can create and sustain locally. Barter and trade will become a normal event as no man is an island. Communities will have to work together to
build their own estates. Government by the people, for the people - in your own backyard!
Get out of the cities for sure, even the suburbs... They'll be the first to be supported by the governments but the also the first to fail when the
government gets it all wrong. You can't grown corn in a window box to feed a family and you don't to be trapped in the cauldron when the water
Thanks RedNeck, all the signs are helpful, we just have to listen and use our intuition.
