Thursday Conversation - Brandon Smith

Words of wisdom and warning for 2019.

17

I've been an admirer of Brandon Smith since about the time we started TFMR in 2010. And now finally, in 2018, we get a chance to visit.

This is mainly a discussion of three things:

  1. How the world got into this position
  2. What is going on at present
  3. The road ahead

But perhaps most importantly, Brandon shares what we should all be doing in preparation for "The Reset", or whatever is coming in 2019 and beyond. And it's not all just the financial stuff that we discuss here at TFMR on a daily basis. It's personal preparation. Can your work sustain yourself and your family? How well do you know your neighbors? Is your community prepared for what's to come? These questions are just as important to answer so I was glad to hear Brandon discuss them today.

Please take the time to listen to this podcast. It's a free, public thread so you might consider passing the link along to friends and family, too. The year 2019 promises to be eventful and wildly unpredictable. The time for vigilance and preparation is now...before the next crisis...not during the event.

Thanks Brandon & Turd!

Great listening content for the ride home tonight.

I love the idea of community, but everyone thinks I'm a prepper nut job doom gloom anti-social liberty seeking throw back. I expect that after Earth implodes I'll finally have some credibility, but they still wont understand why I was doing what I did.

There won't be any money, but when I die, on my deathbed, I will receive total consciousness.

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.😎
