I learned years ago that the best way to judge a person's character is
to listen to how they react to a problem that they think does not
involve themselves. You list many things you have or do so that any Y2K
problems will not affect you much. I commend you for that. It is your
salesmanship that is lacking. Influence in this world is key, what I am
saying that yours and mine ideas may just be listened to more intently
Beth, your logic may allow you to be comfortable, mainly because you
have not yet clicked into all the things that can happen to you if there
is a breakdown in society's operating system. You mention that if you
lived in a high rise, you would be worried. Understand that the person
in the high rise is your partner, whether you like it or not. And when
your partner gets hungry, he may come visit you. With his friends. There
are more unsustainable people than sustainable.
Notice that I said that I want to see massive change in the way we do
things in this world. For myself, and for the people in the high rise.
Looking down my nose at them does not rework the world.
You say you are going to enjoy the show. Shame on you. You are in the
minority of people who do know how to provide for themselves. I commend
you for that also. But your idyllic world will only survive in its
present form if those high riser's are provided for.
As I said in my posting, we have an opportunity here to guide the way
the physical world can work more sustainably. Keeping your head in the
sand and hoping for the worst, as you seem to be doing, does not seem to
be much of a courageous or farsighted plan.
