Let's say for argument's sake, that this nation and most civilized countries do enter into a freefall and collapses into Great Depression-esque despair. With our weakened culture, our girlish men, our luxuried lives, the ease of computers and monitoring, zero tolerance policies, the deference paid to credit ratings and how every indiscretion we've ever made is pullable in an instant, do you think we'll be in a worse off place than back then or do you think they'll ease up and we'd be "freer"? Or does nobody have any idea what I'm talking about.

The good thing about Americans is that when the shit REALLY hits the fan we'll forget all of the weaknesses we have now. We'll be ok.

I agree with Don, we'll be O.K. People may have to settle for a lower standard of living but I don't think it'll be anything like the early 30s. Hell, Japan has been in a deflationary Depression since the early 90s but they seem to be doing alright. Cash is king in a deflationary Depression. It's why the Japanese save more money than any other country. It's also why their economy sucks. Nobody spends it.

As long as there will be blood in the streets up to my ankles, I'll be happy...

There'd be a "human correction" and there would be a lot of people killed till the stronger elements in society pull back and assert authority.

Great minds think alike...as long as I get to bust out my AR and mow down some rioting looters, I'll be happy....I'll finally get to tell my wife "told ya I needed this thing."

I want to be the guy in my neighborhood with the highest number of confirmed kills. I'll spare them from an ear slicing too.
