The big problem is that the data we receive is hopelessly corrupted by the time it arrives at our doorstep. The data that we see is massaged by everyone and his brother so that it will say what people want it to say. Not to mention that the sheer volume of data is such that it is nearly paralyzing.
So sometimes, I just wonder, where are we really? Are we on the slide to oblivion, are we on the threshold of a bright new world? Just where the fuck are we and what the hell are we doing?
People have been saying that the world is going to hell since the time of Socrates. But just where are we on the slide? We can't tell from the data.
So we operate on our gut. Lets be honest, while my gut has kept me out of trouble, it has also landed me in some impressive jams.
At the end of the day though, prepped is better than no preps, and like I have said before, I really hope that twenty years from now I kick myself in the ass for wasting my money on these preps, that everything had worked out swimmingly and I didn't need them after all.
