Great insight USRWDV8 and Hemizsp.It would be interesting indeed sitting down over a cup of joe to discuss the endless topics related to what has thus far been covered here as being in the minority of people who think outside the box does not lend itself the opprtunity to strike up such stimulatong conversation on a regular basis.
On a lighter note I have a interesting story of a reversal of governmental induced control.In
1993 here in Canada our federal government,(Liberal at the time),introduced the 'Canadian Firearms Registry' which required the registration of all long-gun firearms in Canada.You could be fined heavily or face prison time if not complying to this legislation.Of course there was great debate over this registration for years and long-gun owners who lived mostly in the rural areas of the country felt they were being punished for what was going on in the urban centers with hand guns and prohibited weapons.Of course over the years there has been great cost overruns to keep this program afloat.
I opted not to registar any of my long-guns as I felt that this information held in the data base of the law enforcement agencies could be abused in some way against the registrant.I also refused to get nickled and dimed again by having to pay them for the process.So year after year went by having many debates over this issue with those who supported it discussing all the pros ,cons and invasion of privacy concerns.
Well,...here we are,...almost 20 years later and to my delight our present Conservative Prime Minister completely abolished the mandatory long-gun registry and just like that with the stroke of a pen I and countless others are once again law abiding citizens and no longer considered a threat to society.
It feels great to on the winning side!
Now the taxpayers money will no longer be wasted on legislation that did not change a thing in terms of ending homicides with guns,...they will just piss it away on the next useless peice of legislation.
USRWDV8,...the 'Cabin In The Woods' is a good path to take.I did it for 12 years in northwestern Ontario's Lake of the Woods region.Hunted and fished for the majority of my food,cut 8 cords of wood per year to feed the wood stove,spent weeks at a time living in prospector canvas tents in the middle of nowhere while fighting forest fires and cooking over camp fires.Worked and spent most of my liesure time with my family in the great outdoors camping in very remote areas exposing my children to what I like to call the real world so they could devevlope a strong connection.
I moved to a more urban area due restructuring in my workplace and to give my children the opportunity to experience a diifferent view of our world.Now they can choose what path too take and have a good understanding of what each has to offer.As for me,...once the kids are on their own I'm packing it up and heading back to the woods and spend the rest of my days there,...not to hide away from the big bad world but to enjoy a better balance.I believe we as species are becoming too disconnected from the natural order of things which may come back to bite us in the ass quite aggressively.
