Cool and sunny, another beautiful fall day. Probably.
That was yesterday to a T. I did a bunch of work outside because it was so nice.
Took down and put away all the Halloween decor, both inside and out. I’ll still be finding stuff I missed for a week or more I’m sure. Moved stuff around in the driveway. Moved some stuff in the garage. Cleaned the house.
When I get stressed I clean. Kitchen is clean. And I am stressed.
I don’t see anything good coming out of the blatant and amateurish cheating going on. I see CWII looming. I hope you’ve been factoring that possibility into your plans and preps. I think perhaps we haven’t acknowledged how brutal and vindictive that could be. Lots of old scores get settled in the name of progress.
Think on it. What would you do differently if you KNEW your neighbor thought they could kill you with the power of the state? Think SWATTING on an industrial scale. Think about weaponized IRS audits. Think about ‘compliance’ audits. We’re not going to get there overnight, but those are the sort of thing that happen very suddenly if they happen.
Got some things that you know don’t have a paper trail? Might want to secure them separately from the stuff that does. How about ‘tangibles’ without a trail? It’s worth remembering that the family hiding Anne Frank was breaking the law, and those who betrayed her, and imprisoned her were enforcing it. Only took a couple of years to get to that point too, in a ‘modern’ and industrial country.
I’m not panicked yet, or calling for drastic measures, just pointing out that if you think things might be headed in that direction, the time to act is SOONER rather than later.
In the mean time, keep stacking.
