I thought that this knowledge SHOULD get out here somehow. There's food growing around you everywhere. there's scrap metal being throw out everywhere around you. I have a copy o Gary Tibows Free living 101 and I'm not here to push the book but to express the sense that i'm more than happy to share the knowledge with people if they're willing to meet me somehow or show me how to get ti out there (legally of course)

there's a set of dvds and I'm slowly collecting a bit more about edible plants that grow in suburban neighborhoods and also in the woods because I have realized our media per the daily show recent has been rendered completely complicit.

You are as it turns out surrounded every day by recyclable metals that can be traded for cash with a little labor but beyond that even your poorly manicured lawns that have been over run by dandylions etc-the dandylions ARE food. Even with a severe autistic conditon which vomits on bad flavor the body iwll get so hungry it WILL eat it eventually and then adjust to the food.

I don't tihnk you know or truly understand how alienated I felt by my culture when I got mad. I still live in the burbs. I still  somehow managed to live the current way of life. I guess beause my father works at a bank. but it's suspected because I'm a suburban white boy I can't legitmately be a libertarian socialist because I don't live the poverty lifestyle and come from as it turns out a wealthy family that simply has too many expenses to BE wealthy.
so i'm poor in spite of the high incomes.

I live in suburbia but they're the only apartments big enough. I don't like suburbanites. I favored the "unwashed" masses. I'm not a spoiled rich kid at all but  what I am is someone who had the misfortune of being born white and male and thus universally distrusted. But what I know now for instance because of my progressive awakening is that Islam as a secular main religion for instance would not be WORSE than chrisitanity here in the united states. I'm not an arrogant american. I have lost that sense of pride. I am a citizen of the world and my loyalty is to humanity and humantiy alone. I don't like being viewed through the eyes of skin.
I consider all things. Including that my own race might have caused much harm and deserve this distrust. i have come to understand even the terrorist as not "monsters" but people in dire straights. Of course I want my country to get rid of them and deal with it but I am not sure dropping BOMBS is the way to handle it. Economic development there would have ended that.

I'm not sure ANYTHING is surviving the global warming crisis we're going up into but I DO know for now the plants and metals are viable sources of income and food that prevent us form wasting further metal

people in the 3rd world thoguht this way. why does it make sense to examine how they survive the poverty there if you think it might be coming herE? the analysis btw of the economy that calls for hyperifnaltion is wrong.  Those people think a lot more money exist than actually does. A quadrillion dollars is the total unaccounted for debt world wide basically and it will collapse under it's own weight. The dollar is going to soar in value because the debt is unpayable and

global default at some point seems unavoidable.
these are realities I have already accepted, no matter how pessimisitc. the question became  how to survive when discouruse broke out?

into the woods. many people will have the same idea. but they're taught to hunt GAME. They don't know  SHIT about the plants. I want to make this rambling post but suggest that perhaps it's time considering what we see as the future to learn the old ways as it seems we might return to them before it gets better?

i know when this blows up there's going to be hell. They're going to raid the food pantries. they'll get in dogpiles over the food. people will tear skulls out to get it. but eventually that iwll run out. Knowledge is life. Ignorance is death.

they have taught so many christians to fear knowledge. Sigh..alas..

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
