Want A Dose Of Reality?

Want a dose of reality?  You’re not going to like it.

I’m always happy to share Jim Kunstler’s outlook on life from his ClusterfuckNation blog. Here’s the latest: Repricing Reality (and, no, he hasn’t misspelt ‘lede’).

Supporting, to some extent, my own prediction that 2016 is going to be a year that begins a Dark Age for humanity, he says:


“We’re (the US) going to be a much-distressed and poorer so-called republic when this year is done with us.  The markets will crack and the trade relations that comprise globalism will fall apart as nations and regions of nations struggle to survive.  We’ll move inexorably to a very possibly disastrous election.  We’ll face the basic choices, as distressed societies always do, of freaking-and-acting-out (usually in the form of war), or opting for a reunion with reality and its mandates.  So far, it’s not looking good for the better option.”

His advice?

“If you are a thinking person, the months ahead might be your last chance to protect whatever wealth you have and to move to some part of the country where, at least, you can grow some of your own food and become a useful part of a social and economic network that might be called a community.”
