would you fight and kill each other if they told you all there is no money left? or if the computers and phones went out? you'd run ariound killing and looting like chickens without a head or purpose and this is why this test will come. because until you can do it all without moneytary reward or computers you are at their mercy. shalom

personally, I would work to get a lot of gardens started in my community. I would want to work to devise shelters for people who had no place to stay because where I live it gets MF cold. I am a teacher and I would keep on teaching even if I didn't get paid because I think it's important, and it's my calling.

and one of the first things I would do is find a couple (or a few) out of work service people, cops, or gangsters or even freed prisoners to move in and help protect my place.

Killing mass media monopoly as a first instance, and nothing of that will happen!!! Roberto, Bariloche, Argentina.

Ask the Amish. They're getting along fine. No insurance companies, no utility companies, no car insurance, no unemployment.

Ah, do you know much about the Amish? I mean, besides the name? They'll get along cause they help each other out.

I have the fortune of having lived summers on an Amish farm. Hard work, long days, loving family meals, funny hats. No large scale economic problems within the community - everything is as sustainable as possible so as not to disrupt the 'natural pace of humans'.

I worked with them for years, bought and sold stuff to/from them. I guess you know then not all Amish are utility free, and not all are even fuel free. Some even use tractors, depending on what sect they're at.

I've also seen a few people get shunned, not cool.

Right. You know the greater context - the family I worked with had a small dairy, they use electricity for pasteurization. They are very conservative on their technology use, in general.

even in our 'non-violent' but forcible occupations, we can't keep from breaking windows, knocking old ladies down, keeping people from going to work. I despair of what 'non-violent' people like us will do if something small happens, like the water being off. trying to keep it together at our local camp is easy so far. But what if we were hungry?

All the more reason to make a smooth transition from 1% rule to 99% rule with internet voting and peaceful strikes.
