Please come to Whatcom County Council Mtg Tuesday Feb 21 7 PM Whatcom County Courthouse.... I have been talking with members of the Council. Some share my strong concern about the pending probably economic collapse and they are personally taking steps to prepare. I am hoping they will do the following:
A) Create a contingency plan...
B) Alert the Citizens of the County
C) I hope Whatcom can serve as a model for the rest of the country to consider emulating prior to TSHTF.
Advantages: We can get more people growing gardens, doing canning, participating in LETS systems. We can get to know our neighbors a lot better, we can be masters of our own destiny, we can avoid martial law by taking steps to awaken people so the don't loot supermarkets. We can organize food banks etc for those less fortunate. We can get more community gardens going.....
Thanks for your contributions to this discussion John.
The slow degradation of our monetary system is akin to how slowly we are extincting species from bad environmental practices...we reach a tipping point when it seems 'sudden' events occur. This is apparent in the 'sudden' changes in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Wisconsin for that matter. Once basic rights and standard of living are so eroded we finally awaken from our dream state and stand up, speak out, get involved. The problem with our current economic dependency on debt is that our systems have so lulled us into thinking that debt is good. I work in this arena and I know many are waking up to this and starting to pay down their debt. Using the bank's money to beat the system, etc. Nothing frightens your bank more than your paying off your loans early. Thinkabbouditt!!!!
