Yes, things are getting scary.
You must remember we’re not Sri Lanka. We have resources they don’t have, and we’ve never gone completely crazy the way they have.
It is part of the tragedy of the world that the crazy ideas our intellectuals come up with are tried by little countries with no resources, because their bright young men attend our universities and take the craziest things seriously.
But we’re not Sri Lanka. Even California (and it’s crazy) isn’t crazy enough to mandate all organic farming. And other states are better, almost all of them.
Yes, we’re going to have a shortage of fertilizer, and the weather has been wonky (would you believe “return of ice age pattern?” Not saying it will return, by the way, because there are a lot of variables and “climate science” is a bad joke. we simply don’t know enough.) so our crops will be scant.
But we live in a country that makes each one of us the top 1% of the world. If the time comes that we’re starving, most of us, then all the rest of the world is dead.
Our institutions have been corrupted by these crazy ass air dreamers. They’ve forgotten history and they’ve lost sight of reality.
They have power of a sort, but reality has more power. And most of us aren’t crazy.
So, that’s why everything is coming undone, splitting apart at the seams.
Which means …. things aren’t going to be comfortable.
And for people who aren’t resourceful, who won’t scramble, particularly if they live in the big blue cities, things are going to get down right uncomfortable and at times sportive.
And perhaps those of us who can should help our friends who have a little more trouble. Maybe. Be careful you’re not getting in trouble yourself, but lend a helping hand, if you can.
America is large enough, varied enough, strong enough we’ll be okay.
But it’s going to get bad. Really, really bad. For the rest of the world, more than for us. Shaky here.
A way of life — and the statist, centralized way of life has been prevalent for a hundred years — doesn’t pass away without pain.
Birth never occurs without pain, either.
And the ending is a beginning, too.
Let’s make it the beginning we want.
Let’s do our best. For ourselves, for the Republic. For civilization. For humanity.
