All of our problems won't go away if all of society decides to live "off grid". There will always be those who will try to take your land, pose a
threat to you and your loved ones, steal your food and valuable items, etc. All of those things still have value (like paper money) and will be
contested by those that don't want to earn it. Paper money, or fiat currency, allows us a standard method of making transactions.
Yes, at times it feels as if we're just pawns for the rich and powerful, but the reality is that this system has been evolved over a period of a
couple thousand years. Is it prone to failure, absolutely. Does it work for everyone? Probably not. Does it allows us to progress in science and
technology? You better believe it. Making personal wealth is a major contributor to progress as a species, however, it does come with many
shortfalls which I think is what your OP is suggesting. Nothing that man has ever created has been perfect.
Of course, this is just my opinion which i am entitled to!
Of course you are.....but then again you live in a very impoversihed state...full of desperate people.
oh what am i thinking....theres lots of those now.........isnt there.?
Thats the thing isnt it?
You all want to live.......so you go along to get along....after all compromise is the name of the game right?
I do the same.
But spiritually i have long past the point of any serious belief in this system .
I can see its bound to get only worse, with less liberty, less money, ;less food, lower living standards and deeper poverty and misery.
So, when anything is announced by the PTB, i already know before all the debate and the soul searching that it will not fare well for
humanity.......the laws, the bills, the speeches and the elections, are all riged three card monte games we rbes cannot seem to stop trying to make
Insanity they say, is the doing of the same thing over and over
but expecting a different result.
I have walked away from the whole goddam works....(in my mind)
I no longer do the daily grind with any expectations of appreciation or that what i may be doing is of any benefit or import to mankind.or even some
Knowing everything is geared to the profits of the corproatons and the shareholders behind them...that most churches are filled with pedos and power
trippers as well as huge amounts of terribly insecure people.....
That nobody reall cares about anything but their own self images and well being.
Bottom line, its a sham and a fraud and i refuse to play that silly mind numbing self delusion.
Its like quitting a drug though, beacuse all your former druggy friends return time and again to drag you down into the mire youve aspired to rise
Like old drinking buddies that seem to show up regularly just when youve laid in a small stock...and one thing leads to another and before you know it
youre running a small corporation and cow towing to stockholders again....(or something similar)
