How to React
PREPARING for this MONEY MELTDOWN
Most persons have not been doing anything of the sort. They have been spending more than they have been earning. They have been borrowing to do this. &&&&2 RED lights !! 1. STOP borrowing 2. STOP spending
a THIRD red light is more difficult to implement &&&.STOP trusting anyone other than YOURSELF
When, and only when, you have obeyed these 3 stop-lights Do I suggest you look for the GREEN lights--- &&&the ones that allow you to move Forward.
A#1. THINK, CONFER, DECIDE and ACT so as to BUILD COMMUNITY
(instead of ignoring and allowing YOUR community to be both gradually and suddenly destroyed.)
Q. How to build community ?
A. Like this : Share what you understand with others Have others share with you what they understand.
Expect to learn from listening to each other: What IS happening in the lives of your neighbours, What might be done to improve the situation, How to share these community-based plans.
Examples are often at hand: Respecting each others fundamental needs and rights --rights to health, education, safety and nurture.
(could sharing a community garden be a useful focus ?)
