Dear FerFal,I love your book, I bought it on Amazon after reading the reviews of others and it is WELL worth the price. Thanks for sharing your informatiuon! I have also been lurking on your blog site and have read alot of your responses to others' questions. I have a question (feel free to post it and your reply on your blog just leave out my e-mail address:) What has been your experience with class warfare? I recently read this article on yahoo http://finance.yahoo.com/tech-ticker/the-u.s.-middle-class-is-being-wiped-out-here%27s-the-stats-to-prove-it-520657.html;_ylt=Aj.E0oUJG2oToy1yP2zKPwdl7ot4;_ylu=X3oDMTB2ZGFtcDVwBHBvcwMyNARzZWMDY29tbWVudExpc3QEc2xrA25leHQ-?tickers=%5EDJI,%5EGSPC,SPY,MCD,WMT,XRT,DIA&comment_start=121#comments The rich and bureacrats here in the US are getting richer and the poor and middle class are getting poorer (and REALLY pissed) do you think that there will be any type of a French Revolution scenario? It doesn't seem like that happened in Argentina but here in the USA I think people are more rash, plus on average Americans of every social class possess tons of firearms. Thought it was something interesting to look at and would like your take on the idea. Thanks and God Bless.
Hi Jonathan, sorry for the delay in replying.
We do have the rich vs. poor fight here, but the difference is that most of the country is poor, the rich are very few, the ruling elite is even smaller, and the middle class is slowly getting extinct.
Rather than French Revolution (mostly about Monarchy vs. ordinary citizens) what I would worry about the most would be an authoritarian government, big brother on steroids. A large segment of society the society is now poor, and it changed the political scenario. Disgruntled desperate people that lost their jobs a long time ago and can’t find another one will often make the wrong choice when it comes to vote, specially if properly influenced by the media. Many politicians are counting on this, and this is exactly how dictators get voted into office. Socialist NEED the poor. They need them because without them who would they be “caring” for? This is a dangerous game to play because out of logic it means that socialists need to make sure the majority remains poor if they want to get the votes, and if there's not enough poor they'll have to come from the former middle class!
Prepare yourself for class hatred in the coming years, more crime, and more senseless violence. The type we see here, where a bad guy shoots a 9 month pregnant woman after he took the money from her, just because.
Its common these days around the world to blame the right for everything. Commie is cool these days. Its cool to wear a “Che” tshirt, almost considered intellectual by the zombie liberals, the type that are so opened of mind that their brains fell off.
Words like redistribution, social welfare and in general terms the government being responsible for every aspect of people’s lives, along with the right to enforce what they believe you can or cant do, is what worries me the most.
When you hear the president of US repeating the same speech Peron once said, you know its not the direction you want things to go.
The populist, empty speeches, the idolizing of political leaders, more concentrated on the way they look or how politically correct they are instead of understanding what they actually stand for seems to be the norm in today’s socialist, globalize world. Survival, preparedness, life quality and freedom has everything to do with this. Call me crazy but I’d rather have 1000 Americans voting with their heads on the next elections than having 1000 Americans know how to start a fire with a bow drill.
