hey guys! new to the forum but a long time listener to the freedomainradio show. Before i get going i would love to call into the show in response to several recent podcasts involving millennials/ college/ and several other things (not to disagree but to share my story growing up and possibly reach out to like minded people) Im not sure i would have the balls or intellectual strength to argue Stefan anyway. im not exactly sure how to get the ball rolling on that but hopefully this will do (if someone could link a sign up page that would be great im not sure how all that works). I myself am a Canadian born millennial at the age of 23 born jan 11th 1994. I live in southern Ontario.
I would like to start off by saying that growing up through the terrible obstacle course of government education im very proud that some how ive managed to stay above water in terms of not going completely insane. when it seems almost everyone i know has fallen to this "im a victim" bullshit that Stefan talks about regularly on the show. I've only started listening to Stefan and being generally "awake" to world news, economics, social issues etc. for about 4 years but throughout my entire life ive had a different way of thinking as my peers. I think its mostly due to the fact that i had a wonderful childhood with lots of sports, outdoor play, great parents and true friends. I consider myself very lucky. I do not claim to be a genius, but in the most modest way i do feel like i am above most people when it comes to intellectual ability.
This is where things start to get difficult. I dont want to come across as the typical "im struggling so the world needs to conform to me" millennial, However i am most certainly lost. very alone. and quite honestly scared. if i can call into the show i would be looking for some guidance from Stefan involving some of the following issues. in a short question "what do you do when you know in your heart you're right, but your entire world disagrees/ doesn't believe you?". My main focus over the years has been mentally and physically preparing for the coming economic collapse which i believe will hit my area VERY hard. I believe i have a firm grasp on whats happening and whats about to happen with the federal reserve, other countries, and generally everything revolving around this topic thanks to this channel, the x22 report, x22 report spotlight, Sgt report, zerohedge.com and other great online sources. i do not claim to know what it will look like. quite honestly i dont think theres anyone in the world who knows the answer to that. humanity has never seen this before. I have put a lot of thought into what it will likely look like on the streets. what i will see not what the news will tell me. Despite being on a student budget ive managed to acquire a good amount of silver, some food storage and even a hunting rifle and ammo. (i do honestly think it will get that bad) But mostly my idea has been to prepare for the worst and hopefully be underwhelmed. This has been my reality for quite some time but i feel my efforts aren't enough. I fully understand the concept that you cant save everyone. I know that seeing anyone else's survival as my responsibility isn't exactly rational. I dont think i have it in me to be so cold. I feel that the knowledge i have is vital to the survival of my friends and their families and there is a responsibility put on me. while i know i dont have the means to physically prepare for them i still feel a strong pull to do absolutely everything i can to help as many close family, friends as i can.
I have recently been speaking out and educating as many people as i can. my parents, my brother, close friends. people very rarely grasp it or even seem interested. ive lost friends due to this but im generally over that. i feel a genuine concern coming from my parents. People are worried about me so they listen. I show them this channel and others, i show them facts, and i do what i can to explain it myself. in the moment most people seem interested. almost every time i talk to someone i can engage their interest and attention but AS SOON as they go home its like everything ive said is forgotten. I see some big issues coming my way when "SHTF"
#1: I feel like telling people about this might be putting a target on my back. when this happens there are people out there who are gonna go "hey i know a guy who has prepared for this" and come to me for food/ or help of some kind and im not going to be able to hand out freebies.
#2 even if they just come to me to learn what the hell is going on im not going to be able to stand there and explain the last 8 years to them over and over. theres going to be SO MUCH TO DO.
#3 i could go on all day about possibilities but lets not.
I do feel like ive thought of a GREAT plan A B and C. nicely general and flexible as to not depend on specific elements of the collapse needing to fall in the right place, yet it could mean real security. I personally see this whole thing as a once in a lifetime opportunity rather than a doom and gloom "were screwed" mentality.
the ideal situation for me is to somehow have a team of people. doesn't matter how big. 10 would be nice. 3 even. even just a partner who knows and understands the situation before things go down and could control and lead their own families into this "team". i just hate the "everyone and their family for themselves" kind of attitude i see a lot on the internet. need to feel like ive got someone out there whos in it with me. i guess ive been trying to "recruit" people. yet for whatever reason NO ONE even feels like its important enough to just go home and type it into google. i always try to encourage people to not just take my word and DO THE RESEARCH. if anyone has any suggestions please. If you're in the southern Ontario area and maybe have a similar problem please message me. This could very well start happening with this debt ceiling decision tomorrow and we need to have the conversation. post links. articles. anything people im open minded
