Love people and be proud even in poverty.
There's going to be a lot of REAL poverty soon. The days of poverty in the US being measured by whether or not you have the latest generation video
game console vs. last generation's model will soon by over.
The days of eating canned dog food to get your meat intake are coming back. The days of apartment fires because people are burning logs in their
apartments to stay warm because they don't have access to gas, let alone the ability to afford it, are coming. Just as they have in previous
generations, buildings, entire city blocks, will burn simply because of our inability to stay warm.
If you live in the city, consider moving, ASAP. This is your alarm. Get out of high density areas; stop reading this and pack your belongings.
To ask for the hating of poverty is asking for a lot of hate in the coming times. Be proud, especially in poverty. Be loving, especially in poverty.
Be charitable, especially in poverty. Be a helpful hand to your neighbors, especially in poverty. We will not survive as a people if we are not an
honorable people. If that means placing faith in a deity, do it. If that means finding ones inner peace through self meditation, do it. What ever
makes you a better person, be that person. Do this and no politician, soldier, or corrupt business man will out live us. As a people, if we want to
reclaim freedom, we must stand together; and in order to stand untied we don't need to trust any of the power brokers, but it is a requirement that
we must be able to trust our neighbors. With out that, we will not only perish; we deserve to perish and become an extinct society only read about in
history books as a demoralized, selfish, immediate gratification seeking pack of heathens.
Any American under 85 years old knows nothing about real poverty; and soon we will be re-humbled. How we handle that will decide who we are during the
rebuilding and what we leave for the next generation.
I'm not religious, but I do believe the bible gets at least one thing right. The meek shall inherit the earth as the un-meek will cleanse themselves
right out of existence. If someone wants to say that's the work of a god, I'm OK with that. If someone wants to say that's simply human nature,
I'm OK with that as well. As long as I can trust you won't violate my liberty and individual responsibility I'll get right along fine with you;
tread on that liberty and you will realize the true power of meek men. Just because one is meek does not mean one will abdicate his freedom in lieu of
enslavement; be that by a king, a president, a general, a neighbor, or a collective.
