All a bit silly "owning" vast ammounts of land whilst people struggle. http://www.scottishcommons.org/docs/scotlands_commonweal_2.pdf “Your land eh”, asks the miner. “Yes”, replies the laird, “and my pheasants.” “And who did you get this land from?” “Well, I inherited it from my father.” “...

Noticed all the energy saving bulbs in our pad have been more 'flickery' than usual... wondered if we were on a bit of a 'brown out'? I have been told from a source that "brown outs" are now common place and that the juice is being slowed down (longer for the kettle to boil and the like),...

Re: Zero Point Of Systemic Collapse

CounterCurrents - 19/03/10 Aleksandr Herzen, speaking a century ago to a group of anarchists about how to overthrow the czar, reminded his listeners that it was not their job to save a dying system but to replace it: “We think we are the doctors.

These people will soon become the very "gangs" you mention,given the survival circumstances anyone would. No, I personally wouldn't murder or harm anybody to steal food - and most people are similar. Hunger can/has driven people to do such things. I would love to think I wouldn't harm ano...
