Who knows. There are so many factors. If the U.S. crumbles, then it will
be a domino effect. While some folks think China will rise up, I don't
because they depend on sales to the U.S. and other countries that will fall
because the U.S. fell. Plus countries such as Israel, So. Korea, etc. will
fall. Perhaps a modern equivalent of the Dark Ages? The demise of the
middle and upper working classes and the traditionally defined middle class.
The poor always survive because they have traditionally gotten by on little
I really don't give it much thought as there is little I can do to change
things in the big picture. So, I prepare my family. Not in the bugout bag
sense but rather in the self-sufficient homesteading style. I'm teaching
classes in homesteading skills (canning, scratch cooking, etc.) to local
kids. It is amazing how few have parents that have a clue. Next month
we'll be teaching the kids cold-process soap making.
We've done quilting, sewing (still doing sewing), darning, dying, spinning.
Last year we taught book repair. The year before, tanning.
