Circles of trust...

Greetings good citizen,

I know that I sometimes send mixed messages when I point to what other writers have to say and this is no exception

Specifically, I am pointing to Stoneleigh’s commentary at the beginning of Thursday’s post.

She provides a very accurate assessment of the ‘Death Spiral’ we are currently locked into AND she also points to the best, er, ‘escape route’ the average individual can take which offers the highest likelihood of survival.

There should be no irony lost on the fact that ‘circles of trust’ are a decidedly ‘socialist’ concept. A capitalist doesn’t trust anyone but themself.

So if you try to build a ‘circle of trust’ with a capitalist, know up front it is already a ‘one way street’. The capitalist expects you to trust him while he is unwilling to trust you.

Sadly, most people aren’t cautious enough to avoid inviting their ‘materialistic’ neighbors to join their circle.

What they’ll end up with is a circle that doesn’t work.

So we have ‘critique A’.

We can add to that the very logical question of what good will ‘cash’ be when the world’s financial system lies in ruins?

At the very root of the coming collapse will be the ‘untrustworthy’ nature of (any) fiat currency.

Many are already busting their backsides for paychecks that don’t crack their nut…a situation that will only get worse.

If you can’t get what you need, what’s the point?

From here, collapse is only a short step away.

Naturally, the point is the associated ‘desperation’ that comes with being unable to make ends meet.

This, in case you haven’t noticed, is the cliff we’re being pushed over. All so people who already have more than they know what to do with can have more!

Which is to point out that this goes well beyond ‘ordinary greed’.

The pigs want to kill you so they can increase their share of what resources that remain.

I’ll put the brakes on here; we need not descend into darkness in EVERY post.

Backing up just a little, you want to be careful that the people you invite into your circle of trust know what they’re buying into and are willing to do what is expected of them when the time comes.

The capitalist will be tickled pink to learn what he can expect from the group, alternately, he’ll be livid to learn what he’s expected to give back!

Giving doesn’t come naturally to people who put a price on everything they do.

Anyway, just a piece of advice that you can file along with all of the other advice you’ll get.

The wise don’t need it and fools won’t heed it…but every once in a while, somebody is paying attention and they’re thankful for what is freely offered.

I’ll wrap it up here for today, other matters press.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
