Advice on How to Escape Crumbling Society and Farm Off-Grid

I can’t find the link to this article which I think was originally posted on theburningplatform.com. I found it in some old notes and thought it might be of interest to someone. It is written by a man who transitioned from typical debt slave to off grid farming, and his advice for others wanting to do the same:

We decided to chuck it just as the 2008 market meltdown was in full swing. We had seen enough signs to know that whatever direction our society was headed, we wanted to get off. Some of the signs were big ones that few people missed; 9/11, Waco, TBTF. Others were more subtle; the PC movement, the tattoo thing, the sudden appearance of huge numbers of morbidly obese people everywhere, an increasing number of people with their heads fixed in abject submission to an electronic device, and an overall decline in civility even in places we had known all our lives. If this was the initial trajectory then we weren’t planning on being anywhere near the re-entry and splashdown.

A Short Note on the Reaction to the Free ‘Money’ Spewing forth from the Fed

When the Fed came out with the spending bazooka earlier in the pandemic, though it was reckless and destructive to the american people, many cheered. I talked with some of the cheerers about it and everyone of them were for the PPP loans to businesses. I heard the same thing from each of them, which went something like this: “Do you know what would have happened without the PPP loans? You can’t have millions of people unemployed and starving in the street.”

But with the weekly $600 unemployment benefits, which passed in the same bill, the people I spoke with were adamantly against it. “You can’t give free money out to the lazy, the slobs. It pisses me off.”

I find it interesting that they cheered the PPP giveaways to slob businesses but wanted to fight the “unemployed slobs” who received unemployment. Both policies are equally destructive to society, but the people I spoke with couldn’t grasp it.

What was the cause of this acceptance towards PPP and dislike toward UA? Simple jealousy? I don’t know, but leave it here as a curiosity.

As America Crumbles, Many Grow Closer To Becoming Barbarians

Sports fans growing more violent

As America falls this type of random, sporadic violence will continue to grow worse. Ol’ Remus said, “Stay away from crowds.” Keep those words close to you as this year proceeds. People are becoming chippy, ready to fight at a moments notice, usually over things that are trivial. Like getting the last box of cereal from the shelf, or a missed play in a sports game. Full story here:

‘It seems to be more extreme’: Violent sports fans are causing alarm at every level

“Are sports fans getting more aggressive, more abusive, more downright violent?

To Karissa Niehoff, the chief executive officer of the National Federation of State High School Associations, it sure seems that way.

“We’ve noticed, anecdotally, a rapid rise” in instances of aggressive or abusive behavior at high school sporting events, she said in a phone interview.

“It seems to be more frequent, and it seems to be more extreme,” she continued. “So it’s not just somebody was swearing at the official. We’re now having bench-clearing brawls at a greater number than we’ve seen. Physical assaults. … We’re just seeing, more commonly, a more extreme example of bad sportsmanship.”

This Is Our Time to Strut Upon the Stage

You spend your life reading about the tumultuous times throughout history. The great wars…booms and busts…and you think, “Wow, what a scene! It must have been great to live then, to be a part of the action.”

There is nothing fascinating about the destruction of America and the American people, but it is fascinating to watch the process. How inept leaders always do the wrong thing at the right time to keep the cascade going. They have literally no love for the people, and cannot see the beauty that would be unleashed by unchaining them. They just can’t get their own interests out of the way.

Equally fascinating is watching the people fall for the same tricks…over and over again. They have no clue about what is going on. Some say its a race war, some back the democrats, some riot, some back the republicans. All have an opinion, almost all are wrong. As everything around them falls, they bicker over trivialities.

To live in this time as america falls is fascinating.

Let us write about it for the future people.
Let us act.
This is our time to strut upon the stage.

On the Declining Abilities of Kids

I saw a friend yesterday and asked him what he had been doing.

“I’m coaching t-ball again in the 6 and under league,” he said.

“That sounds fun, how’s it going?” I asked.

“Well, the 6 and under league used to be the most fun age to coach, but the ability of the t-ballers has decreased so much since I began coaching 20 years ago that it has become just babysitting. 4 kids on one of my teams in the early 2000’s could regularly hit home runs, now I’m lucky to have one kid that can hit it out of the infield.”

“What do you think is the cause?” I asked.

“The problem is the parents. They don’t play with the kids anymore. They give them a screen to look at and then leave the kid alone. Let me ask you, when was the last time you saw kids playing ball in the front yard?”

I told him I didn’t think I’d ever seen kids playing ball in the front yard.

“Well there you go.”

I don’t know if this is true or if true what the cause is. But maybe the parents have to work so much to get by the last thing they want to do when they get off work is to play with the kids. Maybe just giving the kids a screen so the parents can go in the other room and look at their screen is the best option to unwind. I leave it here as a curiosity.

You Will Finally Be Rich

America continues to spend money it doesn’t have – impoverishing current and future inhabitants – on things that it doesn’t need and are frankly, evil. Killing people in other countries, aborting babies, etc. In creating this fake ‘money’ it has created a grotesque caricature of her socialized markets. The endgame is

Vote You Fool

I was thinking the other day that when the concentration camps in America get going in earnest, and the people begin to get corralled in, they might hesitate. The guards could say something like this, to ease them in: “Fellow Americans, putting you in these camps is for your own good. Trust us, its for your protection.” Some will be suspicious, doubtful of the claims of protection by the guards. But then one of the huddled masses might say, “Can we vote in the camps?” Or, “Will our vote count?”

Why are My Bills Going Up?

I was talking with a friend recently and they mentioned how all the locals in the area are up in arms about the increase in their electric bills. She sent me this screenshot as an example. So I asked what everyone thought the problem was. She said some thought it had to do with a backroom deal between the governor, state senators and the power company. Others thought it was just greedy capitalists, or the ignorant president. Not one of them mentioned the fed.

I told her she should comment back, “I know exactly why your bills are going up:
