Sadly, it’s about time for THE TALK. About time we had THE TALK. The political conventions have ended. Soon, we should have the debate(s). And then, possibly the re-election of Donald Trump. With that scenario the question is, how can the “normal” people live in and survive within a second term Donald Trump America? An America where the majority believe in conspiracy theories, dark organizations such as QANON, and believe in everything that Donald Trump says and does? Consider America as some massive mental institution where everyone locked up are insane, everyone but you. You, the normal individual, you are considered the outcast. You, the sane individual, are considered the oddball. You’re voice goes ignored, overridden by the voice of the majority, overridden by the voice of insanity and of the insane. If the majority believes in eating dog poop, you are punished for not eating dog poop. You, the normal one, knows not to eat dog poop but try telling the insane not to. If the majority believe that deaths don’t matter, they insist that you too believe that deaths don’t matter. If the majority, the majority of the insanity believe a deadly virus is a hoax all the while deaths provIn the obvious, how does one survive this? How can the normal people possibly survive within an America gone completely insane? An America ran by the insane? You can’t escape, there is nowhere to run, and should you object or protest or refuse to eat the dog poop then you are outcast, arrested, imprisoned, punished and tortured. While the world spins around inside total insanity, you are that lone silenced voice shunned and locked away. Think about it. Think hard because this is the very America we could have come November. Just imagine the worst that you can imagine under another term of Donald Trump, then... multiply that by 1000.

This is the America I have lived in since I was 7 when I first realized this is the actual reality. You are just waking up to a nightmare created by a sense of personal helplessness based itself on a feeling of self-worthlessness. It's no big deal. This story may help you. A lion crept into a farmer's barn to spend the night. During the night the farmer came in to attend to some matter there. The lion said to himself, he wouldn't be so calmly attending to his business if he knew I were here. Just because you have just become aware of a danger you have spent your life blissfully unaware of, doesn't increase the danger just because you become aware of it. The real enemy is ourselves, our personal learned self hate, the feeling that we were made to feel worthless because we were helpless to prevent being put down as children. Be of good cheer. There is nothing wrong with you and panic and flailing about won't help anything. Treat others as best as you can knowing it won't be much because of our own personal fear and feelings of poverty and need. The love you take is equal to the love you make so do the best you can. As someone called an Avatar by many, a God conscious individual, someone in whom the Lover and the Beloved have become one and the same thing once said. "RELAX AND BE HAPPY" God, how far I am from that! Anyway........

About time we had THE TALK.

The political conventions have ended. Soon, we should have the debate(s). And then, possibly the re-election of Donald Trump.

An America where the majority believe in conspiracy theories, dark organizations such as QANON, and believe in everything that Donald Trump says and does?

Consider America as some massive mental institution where everyone locked up are insane, everyone but you.

- You, the normal individual, you are considered the outcast.
- You, the sane individual, are considered the oddball.

You’re voice goes ignored, overridden by the voice of the majority, overridden by the voice of insanity and of the insane.

If the majority believes in eating dog poop, you are punished for not eating dog poop. You, the normal one, knows not to eat dog poop but try telling the insane not to.

If the majority believe that deaths don’t matter, they insist that you too believe that deaths don’t matter.

If the majority, the majority of the insanity believe a deadly virus is a hoax all the while deaths provIn the obvious, how does one survive this?

How can the normal people possibly survive within an America gone completely insane? An America ran by the insane? You can’t escape, there is nowhere to run, and should you object or protest or refuse to eat the dog poop then you are outcast, arrested, imprisoned, punished and tortured.

Think about it.

Find a community / locale that is not rioting. People on or located near the front lines will suffer the most. At first.

Second, do you have local food producers? Farmland and the like? You will need that when the supply chain is disrupted and food can no longer move hundreds / thousands of miles to reach you.

Third, you need people. You need family, friends, and a larger community of people who will look out for one another and are of like mind with regards to coming events.
 

ASK THE COMMUNITY
