Stock Up and Drop Out
What can be done to prepare for the worst? The best thing you
can do right now is to stock up on essential goods before the dollar collapses and prices go up. Purchase dried goods such
as beans, grains, flour, dehydrated milk and dried fruit. It would be wise to stock enough of these durables to last your
family for a month. Keep them someplace dry and air tight.
You might also invest in other items such as soap, razor blades,
batteries, gardening seeds, socks, and other small but important items. A good supply of fishing gear could come in handy.
Bicycles, spare tires and bicycle trailers would also be good items to have around.
These are goods that you will find useful. They are also goods
that will have a high barter value if the dollar becomes worthless. If you think about it for a while, you can probably come
up with a long list of such items. Things such as deodorant, spices, solar stoves, water purification kits and/or tablets,
antibiotics, vitamins and other first aid supplies could also be worth a premium.
After stocking up, it is time to wash your hands of the system
which has brought us 9-11, the "War on Terror," global warming, energy and resource depletion, environmental destruction and
increased economic disparity. George Bush told us how to do this when he told us that it was our patriotic duty to consume.
Stop consuming. Find some like-minded people and work on disconnecting yourself
from the system. Default on your debts if you can and pay them off if you cannot. Leave your job and find a way to support
yourself outside of the system. Stop going along with business as usual and build that sustainable lifestyle that we all know
is the only sane alternative. Don't put it off any longer. Start right now while there is still a chance. Or you will find
yourself slaving away in a collapsing police state in short order.
