    Thanks Walter, I just sent your article to the principals within my Gulch.
    We are boycotting Big Box, establishing a sustenance network of farmers and ranchers and a network of protection from outside aggression. I have first hand interaction with my pork and beef producers, honey supply, maple syrup supply, raw milk, eggs, 40 acres of heritage grains forthcoming. I will have 20 raised bed gardens this summer. Apples and pears are already bearing. We have amassed a stockpile of canning and preserving supplies and equipment. The decision on how many meat chickens for the first round shall be made this weekend. This is all within 10 months of my relocation to eastern WI.
    Within the group we also have pharmacists (clinical and homeopathic) and clinicians, non-progressive educators, manufacturers and assorted business entrepreneurs.......resources!
    I've begun an informal teaching format using a more lay-worded presentation of The Objectivist Ethics to clarify the metaphysical value interdependency when conflicts arise out of religious belief structure. I think the permutation will result in an objective Constitution for Man. Our mortality depends upon each other and our conservation of resources, our reverence for the land that sustains us.

    One who knows his lot to be the lot of all other men
    Is a safe man to guide them,
    One who recognizes all men as members of his own body
    Is a sound man to guard them.
    Laotzu

    And we shall watch Rome burn.

      I salute Commander. Sir: it seems that you are not trying to keep this gulch a secret. Like any lover of Atlas, I long have wondered when the time might come. The pivot point, of course, is censorship and so far government is not censoring although the climate the country has become self-righteously repressive on the private side. Given the level of rhetoric and seething hate in the Senate trial, and that the same mentalities are in government and out of it, I think that the assault on the First Amendment will begin. And that will be the ultimate incentive to pack the Supreme Court. And you...will have foreseen it and acted. My best wishes.

        I began planning 3 years past. 30 years running a manufacturing business in Minneapolis was under incrementing oppression of the municipalities at large......I quit. I escaped Universe 25.

        And Sir, I've had some great help along the way. One of my anchorpoints

        SYSTEM IS CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT in philosophy because 1) all knowledge is hierarchical, 2) the demonstration that reason is applicable to every area of life is vital, and 3) when the fundamental premises and connections of a system are not in place a philosophy is vulnerable to skeptical attack......."

    The seething hatred the Dems in congress for Trump I found most disturbing. I watched portions of the fake impeachment proceedings and couldn't believe what I was hearing and on Friday Trumps lawyer gave it back to the Dems playing videos of their vocal hatred of Trump. I just wonder how many US citizens are really siding with the Dems.. Because we already know the millions of Americans voted for Trump and maybe the the next group the dems turn their hatred toward when the impeachment sham is finished. Then on top of that making it impossible to buy or own firearms and ammo. while JB pleads for unity his party is trying to tear the country apart. I just wonder when the rip occurs will it be neighbor against neighbor because I know where I live that could very well happen. What scares me even more was a statement by a guest on Coast to Coast AM that his sources are telling him that China is building containers that are able house Chinese troops and be delivered in multiple containers on one ship to invade US soil.

    Enjoyable read, WDonway. Also a warning not to be dismissed. Like others here, we are prepping as best we can, but the biggest challenge is communication. We financially support those sites that use reason rather than emotion and are watching as they come under attack by psychotics. Our grandchildren...what will their lives be like...

    I know they made Atlas Shrugged on DVD discs but not sure about Fountainhead. A buddy tells me it could be found in B&W but is/was it worth buying and watching?
