One day reality will strike like a 2 X 4 across the head and all those who say "It can't happen here" are going to be in for a very rude awakening. That is not so far off and I would be keeping an eye out for it and being prepared to duck.
Before this I suggest that we will experience a rural / urban divide.
It will begin by supply chain disruptions, then scarcity of certain things.
Little towns all over Canada right now are seeing volunteer groups form under the descriptions "Food Networks". In my town, over 60 people showed up to the first meeting.
I purposely bought 5 acres within town limits when I got my place and I'm thinking of putting my name forward to grow chickens for the townfolk by hiving off an acre for that purpose.
This chicken thing isn't about taxes or diminishing rights, all city dwellers live in a world of diminishing rights, its called for the good of all.No, this chicken thing is about supply chains and asking questions like "I wonder where my food really comes from?".
Please don't fiddle as Rome burns.
