Who Can You Trust in a Crazy World?

Unfortunately the only person you can really trust in this world is yourself.  And maybe your friends and maybe your family (this is highly dependent on your friends and family, sometime these people can be the least trustworthy people you deal with on a regular basis but I digress...).

So you need to be responsible for you.  To do this...
  • Take responsibility for your own health and fitness and maybe even grow your own organic food.
  • Go low consumption, low spend, buy-it-for-life, anti-consumerism, etc.  Barter, buy used, make due, and do without if possible.
  • Disconnect from social media, big tech, big corporations, etc.
  • Make it very hard if not impossible for tech to track you (use a VPM, de-google your phone, etc).
  • Don't believe everything you see, hear, and read.  Do your own research from a variety of reputable sources in order to draw your own conclusions.
  • Don't follow the crowd.
  • Be ready to pivot on a moment's notice (this can be everything from having a bug out bag to being debt free to having multiple money-earning skills).
  • Don't rely on the government to help you (some people left unemployed by the pandemic have been waiting nearly a year for unemployment compensation to come through).
  • Do operate reasonably within the law (or at least have plausible deniability).
  • Avoid interacting with the government as much as possible (this can be everything from not doing things that get you involved with the legal system to living in a freer state than, let's say, California).
  • Have a means of escape (maybe become a dual citizen, always have untraceable cash and other financial instruments, keep your activities on the down low, etc).
