Don’t know how to use and navigate this site yet.  Just joined a few minutes ago in an effort to meet like-minded people who know what is coming and want to prepare for the worst.

I’m looking for born-again Christians with money and skills, who would like to help purchase some land to farm (animals and crops) for survival and to sell/trade in the end days.  Separate houses or trailers, but with some things shared, i.e. large garage, and the ability to help protect one another.  Would like to meet people and discuss in person if possible, so we can interview one another and hopefully become friends.

  1. I read a comment on a Youtube video regarding building communities and I heartily agreed with the comment. I found it again just now and wish to post it, because I think it’s absolutely correct and will save many from heartache if they take the time to read this. If everybody agrees and understands the axiom (below), then the group can succeed.
    = = = = = = = = = = =

    The only time community works is when the individual is sovereign and his/her personal and property rights are respected and defended by the group. This should be the basic foundation of all groups and is key to conflict resolution. As long as you protect what is good for the individual you protect what is good for the group. This basic concept eliminates the need for always seeking those who are “like-minded”. As “like-minded” as people claim to be there is no such thing.

    Personally, I can never be a part of any group that is communal in any way, nor can I ever belong to a group that has a single person acting as self appointed leader/dictator. The authority and powers of a leader must be held in check by some popular mechanism.

    If I am a carpenter then no one should have the power or authority to dictate that I will be the group carpenter. If I own the carpentry tools and know how to use them then my skills and efforts are marketable and should not be subject to the dictates of the group. On the other hand I should be willing to donate when necessary. When I am free to pursue my own interests I am empowered to assist the community.

    This discussion about “group” involves a lot of compelled behavior that is subject to the whims of the group or the groups leader(s). People are a lot more willing to be a team player if they are allowed to be free to act on their own.

    One has to look at the Plymouth Colony experiment. Every one committed all of their resources to the common cause. Within a year they were failing and starving. Young people resented the older people because the older folks couldn’t do the same amount of work. Women resented doing the laundry of other households.

    Eventually Governor Bradford had to set the compact aside and gave each family unit their own piece of ground. They were then responsible for their own individual success and the colony then began to flourish. Because they began to flourish individually the colony as a whole became a success. Yet, everyone donated to the common causes without resentment. Communal enterprise always fails. At every level.
