With the current state of the economy and the fact that large corporations are turning the United States of America into an Oligarchy, I'd say, the
SHTF is already in effect. Granted, it's not the same scenario we have been programmed through Hollywood movies to think it is, but like that old
Palmolive commercial says, "You're soaking in it". More and more we hear millionaire politicians warn us of a "New Norm"as opposed to a "lets
fix this". I'd say we are in the middle of a real life economic SHTF.
So, what do we do ? Well, we have been talking about preparing and getting our BOB ready. We have been sharing natural alternatives to medicine and do
it yourself energy tips. We have been talking about ways to filter water and how to dig pits to cook. We talk about survival in the wild and what
natural plants, nuts, vegetables, fruits , animals and bugs we can eat. We talk about all these things and I say we stop talking and start doing. This
is the perfect time. Instead of preparing to survive, maybe we should just kick it up a notch and just start surviving.
That's right. If you live in an area with feral "Thumpers" , go get you one. You see those mushrooms growing in the wild , you know which ones are
safe, grab a couple. They are delicious with some brown rice and soy sauce. Have a little rabbit on the side. If you "by accident" hit a deer while
driving during off season, hey. Don't let it go to waste. There are all kinds of safe critters for human consumption running around right now.
There's no need to go hungry. And with Monsanto dominating the entire food source, you are better off pulling wild plants and berries anyway.
Find out what is available in your area and go get you some. What are you waiting for ? Don't buy supplements if you already have the stuff growing
in your back yard. Get that solar panel up and going. You can call this a Green Revolution or a Survival Revolution, it doesn't matter. Think about
how much money you will save if you put all of the skills you have been talking about to use TODAY! Don't wait. You can go fishing. I forgot about
that. Fish is good for the heart.
I'm not being snarky or condescending. I'm serious. Can you imagine what would happen to the power structure of TPTB if everyone went off the grid ?
I'd say, we would be a lot more healthy, a lot more happy and a lot more free. Sure, we can still use the technology that is currently available;
what's left of it anyway, but we should start integrating some of that other stuff into it so that if things do get "Hollywood movie bad", we wont
be the ones panicking and freaking out. We will be the ones helping and teaching others how to survive.
Anyway, those are just my thoughts.
