As the Aftershock (and then the OmegaShock) causes life to crumble around us, one of the most important issues will be about your neighbors. Can you trust your neighbors to look out for you, as you look out for them? Will your neighbors attack you? Will they report you to a rapacious government that seeks your harm?
If you don’t know the answers to those questions, you need to find out – and move, if you don’t like the answers.
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about:
This is perhaps a prime example of when bureaucracy goes too far. A Salem woman, fighting terminal bone cancer, has been trying to offset her medical bills by holding a series of weekend garage sales. Out of respect for the neighborhood, Jan Cline even kept the garage sales confined to her own backyard, but still, a meddlesome neighbor allegedly lodged a complaint with the city and now Cline is being shut down. The reason? Apparently the city only permits residents to hold three garage sales per year, and Cline has gone over that quota.
This poor woman is dying of cancer, and her heartless neighbors reported her to the government about her ‘garage sales’.
Bad times are coming, and you need to be able to trust your neighbors.
