Small Solutions for the Survival Economy
Survival means supporting the people who aren't trying to kill us or control us.
If you haven’t seen it yet, please read James Corbett’s recent editorial on Substack, The Controlled Demolition of the Economy. His post assumes the reader is familiar with the premise that the ongoing destruction of Western Civilization in general and the petrodollar financial system in particular is not only happening but is being done intentionally.
The Friends of Epstein-Servants of Satan who run the world and are actively working to destroy our food supply aren’t doing so because they’re dumb or incompetent. They’re cleverly fulfilling their stated intention to kill most of us and enslave the rest of us. Every new crisis they engineer is a means to one of those two ends.
The Friends-Servants’ intentional destruction of the economic system means that our efforts to “reform” it are in vain. There is no way we can vote, invest, negotiate, much less comply our way out of this. Whether we call our rejection of their plans for us and our decision to build our own system the counter-economy, the agora, the parallel economy, or the Greater Reset, it’s clear to more and more of us that escaping their prison and their killing fields may soon be essential if we are to meet our basic needs for food, water, shelter, energy, etc. We need, in short, a survival economy.
While there isn’t one silver-bullet solution to our woes, there is at least a silver lining to the myriad of current kakistocracy-created crises. What I mean is: Just a few short years ago, medical martial law and food shortages were still laughably relegated to the realm of “conspiracy theories.” But today, even the normiest of normies can no longer laugh off the “conspiracy realities” we’re all facing. What was a joke is now a serious threat, acknowledge the once-normies as they fork over dollars they don’t have for higher-priced-than-ever groceries and suffer sticker shock while filling their gas tank on the way to the clinic for a second booster shot. An injection they are now, thankfully, beginning to question and decline in greater numbers.
I’m sure there are a few true believers in the “Putin’s Price Hike” explanation for inflation, but the vast majority of regular folks have finally figured out they’re being lied to and don’t like it one bit. In fact, I see people who once blithely and blindly accepted the MSM’s “facts” now dismissing the official narrative as poppycock. Like those of us who awakened a bit earlier, they are now beginning to focus on finding actionable solutions. It’s heartening to see.
Thanks to No Agenda Social, I happened across a video on YouTube’s Roots and Refuge Farm called My First Ever Rant Video. In it, Jess talks to her 552K subscribers (and those of us who watch her but haven’t subscribed to her channel) about feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of the problems we are confronting—like the poisoning of our soil, thus our plants, thus our animals, thus our food. She explains how determined and hopeful she is about finding small, David-like solutions to the Goliath-like problems inherent in today’s industrial food system.
When Jess first realized that the earth is being poisoned by herbicides and pesticides, she refused to wait until she had designed a perfect system to replace the current broken one. Instead, she fought back by taking one or two little actions at a time.
The only thing I could do was just grow a garden and shop at the farmer’s market and that’s what I did. And it felt so small, like a raindrop in a swimming pool.1
As Jess said, the scope of the problem does seem overwhelming when we try to devise a grand solution to fix what is being deliberately destroyed in front of our eyes. But when we, like Jess, focus on the raindrop-size decisions we can make and the raindrop-size steps we can take, those raindrops can add up fast.
Maybe the prospect of boycotting Amazon, Walmart, and all the other megacorporations owned by trillionaires is too daunting. But couldn’t we all make small moves in that direction? Instead of trying to avoid the Fortune 100 companies cold-turkey, we can look for local businesses whose owners are doing things the right way and support them.
I recently purchased some steaks from The Beef Initiative, a trade group I heard about from Texas Slim when he was interviewed by Adam Curry. While purchasers of their products can still use dollars, ranchers who sell through the Beef Initiative website are encouraged to accept Bitcoin. Building the infrastructure for a parallel survival economy outside the control of central banks and Wall Street banks, of Big Tech and Big Pharma, of credit card companies and asset management companies (think BlackRock, Vanguard, and State Street), of the World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum is absolutely necessary for those of us who object to vaccine passports, Universal Basic Income, Central Bank Digital Currencies, and carbon credits, among other abominations.
Currently, the Beef Initiative prices everything in dollars. That’s likely because the ranchers have many expenses that can’t yet be paid in Bitcoin. Kudos to them, though, for taking the first steps toward an independent supply chain. When they are able to budget in Bitcoin—that is, when their vendors and employees will accept Bitcoin as payment—that will help these ranchers to survive the controlled demolition of the US dollar. Despite the volatility of the Bitcoin price in relation to the dollar, the fact that it’s impossible to “print” more than 21 million Bitcoins means there’s at least a plausible case to be made for Bitcoin to eventually function as sound money.
Whether we are already growing a garden, shopping at a local farmer’s market, or buying beef with Bitcoin (or cash, I might add), let’s each agree to add a few more raindrops to the Olympic-sized swimming pool Jess describes—and see what happens. Drip, drip, drip. Yup, it’ll be filling up faster and faster in the days to come.
