I think it’s important that people within the liberty movement and outside of the liberty movement start thinking about the scale of the crisis we are facing. It’s not just about economic disaster and adapting to the loss of supply chains and stable currencies; it’s not just about survival. It’s also about fighting back against the inevitable government response to the crisis. They will try to take advantage of people’s pain, and use it to lure those people into slavery. This cannot be allowed to happen.

The Stagflation Trap Will Lead To Universal Basic Income And Food Rationing
Pretty much. We’ve are already on the path towards a fully managed economy and society with basic income and full-blown socialism.
After 50 years of worrying about the effects of automation and the tech revolution, we’re going to see where it has led.
We often complain about unfair labor practices in China, but the reality is that China too has automated and continues to do so. Look at the company profiles on Alibaba such as: https://szbobet.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.wholesale.0.0.7212750b9eFc3V What you will see is highly automated modern factories.
And it is not just China, automation is everywhere and unstoppable unless we go back to a preindustrial environment.
The question today is how we structure a society in which most people are not needed to provide the basic needs the population?
Unfortunately, it seems that the only playbook being put forward is socialism by default. Alternatives that we tout out are built upon a world that no longer exists.
For example: how do you build a libertarian-based society in a highly automated world where most people do not need to work to provide for their basic needs?
Drugs. Drugs and the virtual whatever-world of Klaus the one world clown.
This to is vanity.
As humans won’t abide bug-meat either.
Without humans having something to keep them busy. They get bored. Fast. And boredom is an intolerable kingdom for humans.
They can’t abide it.
We came close to your example here in America. But like most good things. Humans came along and screwed it all up.
We’ve always been our own worst enemy.
The liberty movement is more or less dead, killed by the defection of about half of conservatives to the neocons and globalists. I suppose it could be revived if things get bad enough but I am not hopeful.
The time for fighting this fight wasw 100 years ago, or more. Now, the enemy (which is essentially the mindset and doctrine of ancient Rome), has infiltrated, and essentially owns, every institution in the (formerly) free world.
