8 Reasons Why The Great Depression Is The Best Case Scenario

We are on the verge a collapse far greater than the Great Depression and we are far less capable of taking care of ourselves. Our way of life is dangerously dependent upon the ability for us to create unlimited amount of debt and the willingness of others to buy that debt.  This way of life has a mathematically inevitable end and things that cannot go on forever, won’t.

Let us look a 8 reasons why the Great Depression is the best case scenario and also look at how difficult the Depression was for people who were far more prepared to deal with a harsh world.

  1. Back during the Depression most of America could feed themselves with farming, now we only know corporate frankenfood.
  2. Back then people only knew of real wealth, now we think the digits in our brokerage account in wealth.
  3. Back then people had a strong family on community support systems, now we live little lives of narcissism.
  4. Back then people had a strong spiritual strength, now we have chemically induced denial.
  5. Back then people were of fit body and strong mind, now we are obese and willfully ignorant.
  6. Back then people had a classical education to help them figure things out, now we wait for answers.
  7. Back then people had a real economy, now we have a consumer/debt economy.
  8. Back then people did physical activity for fun, now we have entertainment that turns us in to mental and physical mush.

I would like you to take a few seconds to look at the faces of shame in these photos from the Great Depression.  Look at the face of these people and ask yourself, do you think that if given the chance to do something different than the path they chose before the depression?

Do you think that these people were aware and prepared for a collapse?

Did they have the mental or physical assets in place to deal with a new paradigm?

What makes you think that you are better than these Americans?

If you think it is hard to hear your child cry when they don’t get their way, wait until they cannot get food.

If you think it is hard to get a job in this economy, wait until there is no economy.

This car is this entire family’s wealth.  The average American right now is worth less than an average Bangladeshi peasant.  The peasant does not have trillions of dollar of debt tied around their necks.

Physical poverty is one thing… Mental poverty is another.  Everything you know probably is dependent upon this paradigm.  What real value do you have in a post dollar collapse environment?

We can survive anything together, but even the average American family has been divided and conquered.

How many mothers are going to sit in regret that they did not prepare themselves or their children for a collapse?  How many wished that they not wasted their time energy and money chasing after things that mean nothing?  How important is fashion, soap operas, or reality TV?

How many fathers will regret that they did not spend more time with their children?  How many men sacrificed time with those that mattered chasing after and illusion that failed them the moment they reached for it?  McMansions and Ponzi retirement are the real dream, while we now dream about the real relationships and opportunities gone.

Emotionally tough people can make it through.  They can adapt and move on.  Emotionally weak people break, because they have never been challenged.

The very real world coming takes a lot of real effort and patience to succeed and that is something we are in very short supply of as a society.

Tent cities are here and the crippling poverty is just starting as the Elite start the final theft.

“It wasn’t much, but we had each other.” stands in stark contrast to today where we have so much but no one to share it with.

Generational support has been ripped from our human experience and is a key to getting back on our feet.

The most famous picture of the Depression was of Florence Owens Thompson taken by Dorothea Lange.  The photographers notes from the 10 minute photo shoot were a follows…

“Seven hungry children. Father is native Californian. Destitute in pea pickers’ camp … because of failure of the early pea crop. These people had just sold their tires to buy food. I did not ask her name or her history. She told me her age, that she was 32. She said that they had been living on frozen vegetables from the surrounding fields and birds that the children killed. She had just sold the tires from her car to buy food.

All of those things that we worked so hard for become worthless when the paradigm collapses.  The worst part is most of the stuff Americans buy are cheap stuff from China that will either break or have no real value in the next paradigm.

Those that have been breed to thrive in a collectivist paradigm, to do as they are told and not ask questions, will be left destitute when the paradigm collapses.  Only those that use the power of the Trivium will be able to adapt to a new reality.

Men will be split from their families as they seek opportunities far and wide.

Women will have to endure not only their world falling apart but trying desperately to shield their children from the harsh new reality.

    WOW Comment Needed? That Badly?

    Dear BC,
    I don’t think your slow crash scenario is even possible. You say:

    I haven’t lost hope for Americans. They’ve become lazy and immoral, but people can change in the most amazing ways when their eyes are opened to the things that really matter.

    Which is very true IMO, plus it goes for every kind of people too. I have tried to reduce the question of collapse, to the bottom line, so that it could be understood by all. Will there be a banking system collapse? That is the critical question. Looking back at history, it has happened every time. Time after time after time, for that good old 100% certainty. This time it is even more screwed up than it ever was. So, you can count on a banking collapse. But this time it is different, as there is only one form of currency holding the whole western world together. Past bank “Holidays” were localized and surrounding currencies were used to fill the void. Imagine what will happen in cities, you never got to see what happened in New Orleans. But when the ATM’s quit working, along with credit and debit cards, money will rapidly vanish and you can’t shop for food if you don’t have money. The people who do have money will empty the stores and then you will have empty stores. If we are really lucky, some power will stay on. But that is just wishful thinking.
    To get back to your quote above, when americans are forced to confront WHAT REALLY MATTERS, the answer will be food and shelter in the face of declining availability of both. How many people will there be enough food and water for? The result will be panic and chaos, with a complete breakdown of law and order. {When people have nothing to lose, they lose it.} I don’t think the PTB powers that be, have enough police without families. Fed. Gov. loyalty will fail. Too many Americans have guns, which will turn out to be a very good thing, in the long run, but will be highly fatal in the short. As Silver Shield has given many the background to ask the right questions. I ask this: In our world of highly organized distribution, what production and food supplies will exist in an urban setting in a Western country a week after the ships quit sailing to the west. You cannot organize a ship full of goods or oil, without a banking system, without money. Fiat currencies always die. The dollar is over 110 years of age in money years. The PTB are already using artificial respiration to keep it alive. That is what makes a bank holiday a certainty. The most interesting thing you might consider, is that the least civilized places will become the most civilized.

    Silver Savant:
    You make some good points. That’s always a possible outcome. I just don’t think it’s the most likely one. Maybe I’m wrong. I guess we’ll see.
