Here are some different suggestions for modern living posted by longtime moron Grump928(C) awhile back:
1 Stop buying stuff
2 Do only what the government directly compels you to do.
3 Pay in cash with a winkwink
4 Cheat the government whenever possible
5 Steal all your entertainment
6 If you know of tax cheating, keep your mouth shut
7 If called to jury, refuse to convict if you think the law unjust
8 Discriminate in all your private dealings, without openly saying so
9 If you see a CoC sticker on a business, go elsewhere
10 Vote against all tax levies, particularly school levies
11 Buy firearms and ammo. It's not simply a just-in-case, it's a good financial investment of small sums when savings are yielding 1/4 of a percent.Shocked because of how many I actually practice, without even doing so so purposely. The context was what we all should be doing as our country careens off a cliff of economic and cultural collapse.
I'd add in grow a big garden and stock up on favorite canned goods, as well as get to know your neighbors and informally - note, important, informally - organize locally.
Related to another aspect of the problem:
"Though the election is still a month off, the campaign of 2016 has already done irreparable damage to the American establishment. Its roots in the nation it purports to lead have been attenuated if not severed. It has shown the world a portrait of American democracy at its apex that approaches the repellent. Through the savagery of its attacks on those who have risen up against it, the establishment has stripped itself of all claim to be the moral leader of American society. Its moral authority is gone. Even if Mrs. Clinton wins, it can no longer credibly speak for America."
"As for the national press corps—the Fourth Estate—it has been compromised, its credibility crippled, as some of the greatest of the press institutions have nakedly shilled for the regime candidate, while others have been exposed as propagandists or corrupt collaborators posturing as objective reporters."
"What institution in America today, besides the military, enjoys national respect? And if people do not respect the regime, if they believe it acts in its own cold interest rather than the nation’s, why should they respect or follow its leadership?"
"We have entered uncharted waters."
An interesting perspective from Pat Buchanan, of all people.
