We are on the verge a collapse far greater than the Great Depression and we are far less capable of taking car of ourselves. Our way of life is dangerously dependent upon the ability for us to create unlimited amount of debt and the willingness of others to buy that debt. This way of life has a mathematically inevitable end and things that cannot go on forever, won’t.
Let us look a 8 reasons why the Great Depression is the best case scenario and also look at how difficult the Depression was for people who were far more prepared to deal with a harsh world.
Back during the Depression most of America could feed themselves with farming, now we only know corporate frankenfood.
Back then people only knew of real wealth, now we think the digits in our brokerage account in wealth.
Back then people had a strong family on community support systems, now we live little lives of narcissism.
Back then people had a strong spiritual strength, now we have chemically induced denial.
Back then people were of fit body and strong mind, now we are obese and willfully ignorant.
Back then people had a classical education to help them figure things out, now we wait for answers.
Back then people had a real economy, now we have a consumer/debt economy.
Back then people did physical activity for fun, now we have entertainment that turns us in to mental and physical mush.
I would like you to take a few seconds to look at the faces of shame in these photos from the Great Depression. Look at the face of these people and ask yourself, do you think that if given the chance to do something different than the path they chose before the depression?
Do you think that these people were aware and prepared for a collapse?
Did they have the mental or physical assets in place to deal with a new paradigm?
What makes you think that you are better than these Americans?
