The power elites and the people who blindly follow them are not interested in being on the right side. They are interested only in being on the winning side. In the end, the result they covet most is not to achieve compromise on Constitutional ideals, but to achieve total and unequivocal destruction of those ideals.
North Korea has the potential to become a trigger point for multiple economic catastrophes, and there are people in this world who would be happy to use such crises to serve their own interests.
Preparation for disaster, whether natural or man-made, should be as vital as any ideal found in the various practices of religion and spiritualism. Preparedness should be treated with reverence, discipline and duty. Without self-sufficiency, we set ourselves up for endless failure and enslavement.
Propaganda is not simply political rhetoric or editorial fervor; it is the art of deceiving people into adopting the ideology you want them to espouse. Nothing embodies this disturbing reality of cultural dialogue more than the ill-conceived movement toward gun control in America.
Most catastrophic cultural policies and tragedies can be traced back directly to a subset of people who use their positions of influence for ill purpose and who knowingly engineer calamity not just for personal gain, but also for the gain of their social class.
The system we are born into is designed to make us stupid. But we all have a choice: to be taught by others or to learn for ourselves. At the end of the day, sheeple are sheeple not because they have to be, but because they want to be.

All battles, all wars, all fistfights and bar brawls, all conflicts in every place and in every time (except those conflicts in which both sides answer to the same puppeteer) begin and end as battles of the mind. No struggle is determined on strength of arms alone.
The only advantage of a long, drawn-out disintegration of the overall economic system is that as the years pass, it becomes possible to discover a pattern through which we can gauge where we really stand today and will stand tomorrow. Unfortunately, the pattern suggests the next year will be dismal.
Building a solid community of people to rely on during a collapse is absolutely essential, and the larger the group of liberty-minded neighbors the better. But if certain ground rules are not established from the very beginning, a rainbow of personal issues and character flaws could very well destroy years of effort.
