I think I’ve become more sensitive to the term “Quality of Life” since becoming disabled. I’m not talking about your own choices you make for yourself but many of the so called liberals that want to make for other people. I believe life has value outside of the idea of cost consideration and inconvience to others. I believe we show the best part of ourselves when we care for for others that cannot care forthemselves.
I have found being disabled has changed my attitude. Or better to say that I always found value in folks but by becoming disabled it made it personal. I find it Ironic that no one uses Stephen Hawkings as a good case for “Quality of Life” and by his own addmision the diagnosis of “Lou Gherig’s”/ALS disease made him stop cruising through school but to actually work hard at his studies. Good, bad or indifferent Hawkings is about the best example of a a scientific rock star we have today. He was diagnosed at 22 years old and now he is 67, a grandfather and a person that has inpired millions. We get the story of his ALS has progressed very slowly, but he could have believed the “Establishment” and chewed a bullet or simply ended it because “He didn’t want to be a burden” .
I don’t think of myself as a burden and I do my best, but I’m am what would be considered a useless eater by the “statist” and I would at best be left to die , or worse simply eliminated, because my “Quality of Life” can’t be all that good. I’m poor and physically handicap along with my medical issues. I maybe facing ALS as there is some correlation between ALS and CIDP if not cuasation. I’ ve been a survial situation for years.
I’m not trying to bring folks down nor gain “pity points”. Life is dangerous, she is trying to kill you everyday, eventually she will win and you will die. I want folks to wake up to the fact that some things can be controlled and some things can’t. Even so you can’t give up because of some arbitrary pinhead expert decides if you don’t live his way you are worthless. I truly believe this disease has saved my life. Becoming a prepper has given me purpose. I have stored boxes of 3 weeks worth of goods for family members that mock me. At least 1 will probably die within a couple of weeks of any SHTF event because of health problems and a total lack of touch of that little world we call reality. I can’t save her as she will not even try to save herself.
Control your own ground: Mentally, physically. It might be a house, and apartment or a tent. But start there as you have about 3 feet around you you can say you truely control. Please do not play the PTBs hype of collectivism and shared sacrifice. Especially the inside traders, Gov’t workers, Corperations, banks or unions.
It starts with you! How would you fight the PTBs? Don’t grow a a garden or have few shotgun shells full of salt? Learn who you can trust among neighbors and have some fun and not develope a bunker mentality. Gosh do you think “Flash Robs” hit local mini-marts cause they have high quality food? Whole grains hell I can leave detailed instructions and most folks can’t even soak beans.
We all owe a death and your alive now and you can make a choice! Will it matter? probaly not how many deaths do you know about from Revolution? Screw it they won and we can too if we work at it.
