  •  Many can't afford to protect themselves (none)
    The problem is that there are many, many people who are already where you know the rest of us (except the oligarchs) are headed.  Those people have no way to protect themselves.

    The way your initial comment was worded, it sounded like you were trying to tell the poor to behave like they had options, which is not possible, at least not without experiencing outright starvation.

    It's the currently-sheltered middle and upper-middle classes who have that luxury, but most are too blind to see the impending economic crash.

    My family, riding the sharp down-slope from a 6-figure income, is intentionally making an extremely radical socio-economic shift, specifically to protect ourselves from the coming "hard landing." Far, far too many people don't have the resources to do what we're doing, though. And many more don't have the information necessary to alert them to the need to act proactively - thanks to the feel-good distraction machine that passes itself off as our media.

    Beware the everyday brutality of the averted gaze.
