In the post-capitalism post-NATO-Russia-War barter economy, you better have more to trade than your ass

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There remains a slim hope that so-called world leaders and their minions, the multitudes of technocrats, political consultants, expert advisors, yes-people, deputies, assistants, frat brothers, ex-lovers, etc., who rule the “free” world know what they’re doing. A slim hope, but maybe it’s time to give serious thought to the worst case scenario. In the worst case scenario, the shit (American Exceptionalism and all it entails), will sooner or later hit the fan (global disgust with the current world order imposed by the shit). After our billionaire-owned governments collapse, along with the dollar, where are you gonna be at? Unless you’ve got something to sell or trade, you’ll be screwed. If you’re living on a government job or a government cheque, life as you’ve known it is over. Need food? The supermarkets have all been looted and the supply chains trashed. Wanna eat? Head for the country. Folks out there grow FOOD! Alas, with the dollar worthless, what do you have that you can trade to the country folks for the meat and potatoes or rice and beans you need to feed your family? I have a wood-worker friend who makes wooden wagon wheels. There’s a lot of Amish communities still use those. They’re an integral part of the Amish supply chain. Buddy and his extended family will be dining large as long as he can produce wagon wheels! That’ll be generally true for everyone who can provide a product or service people need. Underneath the manifold layers of bureaucracy and parasitic grifting that have destroyed Western civilization, there remains the beating heart of the real economy. That’s where people do real stuff; drill wells, dig mines, build homes, grow food, cook food, fix cars, cut hair, and so on. If you’ve got something to contribute to community survival, you’ll be fine. If the only asset you’ve got is your ass, you’re gonna be in trouble.
