My most prophetic recent read

I think about this book almost every day. "You ay be smart. But, compared to the other voters you're outnumbered." The earliest prophetic read for me was Catch 22 in high school. Then, I did read Peter Schiff's "Crash Proof". about 16 years ago it was Atlas Shrugged. I only wish I had more time for reading...

    Clarey has written a number of good books, I've read some of them.
    Yes, I too am enjoying the decline.... it is a programmed and designed demolition... not much I can do to stop it.
    So I enjoy what I can -- interstate travel while still allowed and affordable ... grocery stores with... food.
    Things will need to get a whole lot worse before the stupid, lazy, ignorant vox-populi figure out that the supply of Ding Dongs at Dollar General are all run out.
    While enjoying the decline, I keep healthy (out of the hospital) and keep in mind, like Victor Frankl's story of being in the death camps ... I can choose my attitude, I can fix my vision on a time on the other side of this madness... a vision where I am 20 years older (good lord, I will be leaning into 80)... and be in the company of fellow producers.

    An old college friend once reminded me "Don't let the f*ckers get you down." He said it in all seriousness. Short and simple.
    Remain positive in that which you can continue to control.
    Move your ark higher up the mountain.
    The incompetence and rot will eventually be washed out to sea.
    I continue to appreciate the camaraderie and positive spirit here in The Gulch. Thank you.

      Sounds like a lot of my college buddies...

      I just ordered a custom fishing boat. They start welding the aluminum next month. I'll get it in the fall and have announced that people are going to see much less of me. Goodbye world. Good luck, too...

        Yo Abaco -- this is great news -- thank you for sharing it.
        I hope that you are taking the time to check in on your custom fishing boat construction as it proceeds.
        Cheers to a fine summer in anticipation of the Fall and a new adventure.

    Clarey at his best. He’s now degenerated into Red Pill grift. Telling young men to move to Colorado or join the military. People say the darndest things for GooTube bucks. To be fair....he always said someday he would commence “Operation Evil” and just tell people what they wanted to hear. I suspect he’s started.
    But the book is excellent.

      Be aware of false prophets.
      I am not a prophet.
      You are not a prophet.
      We are not prophets.
      Focus on the mission.

      I always had the impression that Clarey was smart enough to trade options or Forex to bring in coin.
      Apparently he's writing / selling books to bring in coin.
      Plus the YT Ad revenue...
      "Operation Evil" -- I was not aware of that part.

    Saw the movie, never read book. My hs reads included "Brave New World" and "1984" which put me on alert about what could happen right here. Soon after Mark Lane's book on killing of JFK, which I neve felt was other than a put up job by CIA, Bush, with Johnson in the know. We have to admit we have reached the stage where eveone hass their Soma to make it through the day, as in "Brave New World."
