I think we're headed underground whether we like it or not. If we don't choose to do it, it'll be forced upon us.|
The technology we have these days surely puts us in a better situation than the 30's. We can all still work and have commerce with structurally high official unemployment: just work for barter or find another means of exchange that can't be confiscated. I like Karl's idea of a general strike because you end the BS quickly, but the chances of something like this happening are slim. They do it in Europe all the time and don't seem to make any progress with it. It would have to go on for many days - perhaps months - to have the desired effect.
My point is you can still avoid taxes and starve the beast without starving yourself. If people just realized that they already have credit in the form of human capital, then there's no need for loans and chasing after cash that's being swallowed up by the banking system in a deflationary collapse.
And just one more thing. I've noticed all the BS filling the airwaves today about politicians and jobs. The sheeple have to get one thing straight before we can even take the first step: the government technically can't create any jobs (but they sure as hell can destroy them) nor do they owe you a job. Anyone running for office spouting the job creation mantra is full of **** - and that's pretty much all of them it seems to me.
I've yet to hear a politician tell the truth: that even more jobs need to be lost (finance, insurance, real estate, and government) in order to clear the system of its excesses and waste.
