resume doom... - - - 8 Reasons Why The Great Depression Is The Best Case Scenario
By Silver Shield, on September 21st, 2011


[link to dont-tread-on.me]

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.

1. Back during the Depression most of America could feed themselves with farming, now we only know corporate frankenfood.

2. Back then people only knew of real wealth, now we think the digits in our brokerage account in wealth.

3. Back then people had a strong family on community support systems, now we live little lives of narcissism.

4. Back then people had a strong spiritual strength, now we have chemically induced denial.

5. Back then people were of fit body and strong mind, now we are obese and willfully ignorant.

6. Back then people had a classical education to help them figure things out, now we wait for answers.

7. Back then people had a real economy, now we have a consumer/debt economy.

8. Back then people did physical activity for fun, now we have entertainment that turns us in to mental and physical mush.

Chris Duane: A Decade of Denial and Deception




[link to dont-tread-on.me]

“It is said that men go mad in herds, and only come to their senses slowly, and one by one.” -Charles MacKay

9/11 is the biggest event in our life time, and yet here we sit a decade later, and the average American has not put any logical thought into what happened that day. For the most part, Americans were driven by emotional, almost animalistic, herd mentality into multiple wars, loss of liberties and explosive generational debt. We were driven by the fear of Mushroom Clouds and Weapons of Mass Destruction that were only found in our minds. When I look back at how much our world has changed over the past decade since 9/11, it is astounding to me how much death and debt could have been avoided if we just came face to face with reality.

The Idea Of Unattainable Silver Is Catching On

[link to dont-tread-on.me]

Articles promoting $500, $1,000 or $12,000 silver price targets miss the whole point of buying silver. We are investing in silver not to get more fiat currency in the future, we are invest for the mathematically inevitable collapse of fiat currency. I put this crazy little theory out there in my first blog post at the beginning of the year about silver not being available at any price. The ideas was based upon a few factors.

1. Silver has been used and abused as a industrial metal so much that all of the major stockpiles of silver have been exhausted. (Read the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield.)

2. The fraud in the paper markets is so rampant that they could never deliver all of the metal they say they have. (Read the Case for a 1:1 Gold to Silver Ratio.)

3. The mathematically inevitable collapse of the of the dollar, the world’s currencies, stocks, bonds, pensions, insurance, and Real Estate the mass of humanity would rush into real tangible assets except those that hold the metal will no longer sell for paper that they did not want years earlier. (Read the 11 Mentality Shifts of Silver Investors.)

4. The Industrial Demand of silver will soon be eclipsed by the Investment and Monetary demand of silver. (Read the 3 Demands of Silver.)

What is an American?

[link to dont-tread-on.me]

By Randal-Hardcoremind.com, on September 13th, 2011

The question was put forth to me on a forum to describe what it is to be an American. What values we have that make us Americans and set us apart from people from other countries?

Excellent question and one that, to me, requires two different sets of answers because I believe that what it means to be an American today is very different than it was 200 years ago (or even 100 years ago).
What it meant to be an American in years past was:


To believe that you had a duty to take care of you and yours.

That you, and you alone, we responsible for your successes or failures.

That what anybody else did was their business and none of yours unless it brought physical harm to you, your family or friends or your property.

To be suspicious of anything that the government told you, to be critical of politicians. As Jefferson supposedly said, “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism”.

To expect to pay nothing to the government because you expected nothing of the government except for them to protect the borders of the United States.

To accept that people were different but be free to ignore them, refuse them service or criticize them.

To be free to start a business without having to fill out hundreds of forms, pay thousands in fees and be able to spend the fruits of your labors without having to give a portion to the various levels of government.

To be free to go to hell in your own way.

To be free to put whatever substances you wanted into your own body but also responsible for the consequences of doing so.

To be willing to rise up, gun in hand, to resist a tyrannical government.

What it means to be an American now is:



To be so gullible that you accept whatever spews forth from the mouths of the major news channels or government oxygen wasters.
To be so compliant with all the laws, rules and regulations that you accept, with little or no questioning, the next law to come out because it is “for your own safety and security”....

Good read.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

I suppose it's a good thing I've lived the past 6 years below the poverty line. I know how to scrape by, like using flyers as shitwipe, or shopping at the value village, buying bulk food staples like powdered milk, potatoes, rice, pasta, etc. Getting marked down food, is all I ever eat.. Also, growing our own tomatoes and veggies in the backyard. You can use napkins/tp as a coffee filter, if only you can afford coffee these days.. fuck man, its now $12.99 for a big can of it.

It's going to get worse, for sure. Those days were much easier than today, right now.. We really do rely on the system too much. Luckily, I've taken hoticulture class in high school twice, and now I'm at an environmental college.. so I've got knowledge of growing food, etc.. but millions of people have no idea what they would do, tomorrow if tomato's shot up to $9.99 per tomato. Most people also don't realize there has been drought this year all over the world, and therefore there is less food to go around. GMO's are probably either going to take over, or they will be affected by a disaster of some kind..

Our next Great Depression (we are entering it now) will make the 1929 Great Depression look like a kindergarden picnic. hiding

Before the GD of 29...

there were 8 straight years of steady stock market gains

No banks were failing.

Everyone had a job.

The dollar was strong.

Europe wasn't ready to collapse. We drug them down.

And it took 13 years and WWII to get us out of it.


Today the stock market is on a banana peel.

Unemployment is 25%

Bank continue to fail.

The dollar is weak.

Europe is going down for the 3rd time.


We are in 100 times worse shape now than when the 29 crash happened.

Anyone that thinks there is light at the end of this tunnel is dreaming...

I read somewhere that during the great depression, something like 90% of Americans were self-sufficient... they grew their own food, had livestock, etc. Today 90% of Americans live in urban areas and are completely dependent upon others (the government, grocery stores, etc). Today only 4% of Americans are self-sufficient.

We live next to the Amish out of the major city with all the foodstampers and bottom feeders waiting on the government to strap their diapers on.
I can rest assured the Amish have their gardens and act together and will not look at stealing from our family garden because they have their own. You can mock the Amish for being interbred too much... but hey... when it hits the fan they will go on like nothing happened and I pray we can to. CIRCLE THE WAGONS AND DRAW CLOSE TO YOUR FAMILY.

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.

1. Back during the Depression most of America could feed themselves with farming, now we only know corporate frankenfood.

2. Back then people only knew of real wealth, now we think the digits in our brokerage account in wealth.

3. Back then people had a strong family on community support systems, now we live little lives of narcissism.

4. Back then people had a strong spiritual strength, now we have chemically induced denial.

5. Back then people were of fit body and strong mind, now we are obese and willfully ignorant.

6. Back then people had a classical education to help them figure things out, now we wait for answers.

7. Back then people had a real economy, now we have a consumer/debt economy.

8. Back then people did physical activity for fun, now we have entertainment that turns us in to mental and physical mush.
 Quoting: Astrochik


9. People don't have a personal library of books and music that can be used without electricity.

10. Most people played or had a family member who could play a musical instrument for evening entertainment.

11. People knew how to be story tellers.

12. People are spread apart and far from stores or local farms.

13. People knew how to repair things on their own without looking it up on the internet.

14. People knew how to store food over a year.

15. Churches used to be set up to help members of their congregations in hard times. Now a lot of "spiritual" people don't have a physical church or support group to help them.

I'm sure people can think of more. These are the links in your chain you can repair, if you want to be more prepared.

We're screwed all right. In the '30's there was war and a manufacturing base to fall back upon - now most manufacturing is done overseas. There are no jobs to bail out the economy and a war would probably be the last. Doom on!!

Let's not forget that America was full of Americans, another situation that is no longer the case.

Bullshit! The Italians, Irish and Germans from Russia had only been in the US for 20-40 years, one and a half generation, during this time. BUT they were hell-bent to become American and do what Americans did. There was a free society and dream to reach for! The only hand out was terrible land, if you had the fortitude to work it and survive.

yeah i agree with you, but don't forget also, back then there were less occupant US forces and political games, US based economic hitmen, less milking the 3rd world countries' resources, all around the world too.
To know means to know all. Not to know all means not to know. In order to know all, it is only necessary to know a little. But, in order to know this little, it is first necessary to know pretty much.
