I found this on Quora and the guy invited everyone to share. So it's open source.

A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said,

"I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost?

I replied I'm not sure;

it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it,

it fed the people who make the tires,

it fed the people who made the components that went into it,

it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires,

it fed people in at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore.

It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer and fed the people working at the dealership and their families.

BUT,... I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.

That is the difference between capitalism and the welfare mentality.

When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets and give them dignity for their skills.

When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self-worth.

Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value.

Socialism is having the government take your money against your will and give it to someone else for doing nothing.

I think this is well written and well thought out

If you agree please send it to your friends.

If you don’t agree just delete it and have a nice day.

I foresee a feudal uprising in the future. Someone needs a pitchfork in their ass. Too many nasty lords fooling around right now and the serfs are getting wiser

Interesting that the maths work out that way... 15 minute serfdoms...

ah, another hit by Clif and the Beached Boys: Serfing USA. Today the meeting with the WHO usurpation of control of all governments of the world with their pandemic and vaccine vaccine concluded with no opposition by any government. One year from today they will vote to begin the "Treaty" We must work to pull the USA out of the WHO and oppose it.

End the FED, don't touch the $/€ anymore. Establish barter-circles, find out what goods you can produce for trading with others. Learn how to repair essential items. Get into 6GW, exclude those bastards and kick the sh*t out of the KM!

Pardon my French and greets from a rainy-cold May south of the Austrian Alps.

I thought the 15 minute cities were a refined version of a human sardine can. Maybe they will be called New Sardinia! I hadn't considered the feudal aspect of them. New Sardinia will make the feudal system seem like a dream if you consider they want 6 million people in the sardine can. They will have the gullible serfs drinking recycled urine, eating Gates fake meat and organic bugs. With the bioweapon jab designed to alter thoughts, they will love it! (Thought I would add........More like a can of Spam......tall, narrow and not very wide.)

OK, I wonder what the response would be if you asked Chat.gpt these questions?

1. Is Communism bad while Socialism is good?

2. What is the practical difference between Communism and Socialism?

3. Do most citizens in Western governments support Socialism?

4. Is Socialism a seed of corruption?

5. Should governments be Socialist (compare with Oxford Union debate on Socialism on YouTube).

6. Can a government be "part-Socialist" without that portion swelling and taking over a government?

7. Do Socialist governments ever deliver what they promise?

8. What are Austrian vs Keynesian economics?

9. Should a government be judged by economic or by human rights?

10. If individual human rights are in the way of a nation's economic development, should they be suppressed?

Hmm ..... if a 15 minute city equals a 15 minute serfdom. How many minutes does it take for humans to wake up?

I know that if a hypersonic missile is launched by Russia; targets Davos and Basel Switzerland, the New World Order will last just 15 seconds, reducing Davos into a crater lake.

Hello Humans..... you are free ...... again.

All meant in jest of course.

The Global 15 Minute Serfdom is going to fail in less than 15 seconds; even without Russia's help. If they take down the internet, how will they be able to "track" people?

BING AI’s essay, when asked to write in the style of Orwell:

The 15-minute city is a concept that aims to create urban environments where people can access their basic needs within a 15-minute walk or bike ride from their homes. It is presented as a solution to the problems of congestion, pollution, inequality and alienation that plague modern cities. But behind this seemingly benign idea lies a sinister agenda of social engineering and totalitarian control.

The 15-minute city is not a new idea. It has its roots in the utopian visions of the early 20th century, such as Ebenezer Howard’s garden cities and Le Corbusier’s radiant city. These visions sought to create ideal communities that would harmonize nature and culture, individual and collective, order and freedom. But they also entailed a radical transformation of the existing urban fabric, which was seen as chaotic, dirty and oppressive. They required the demolition of old buildings, the displacement of populations, the imposition of rigid plans and regulations, and the surveillance and discipline of the inhabitants.

The 15-minute city is a modern version of these utopian visions. It claims to be more democratic and sustainable, but it is equally authoritarian and destructive. It aims to create homogeneous and standardized neighborhoods, where people live, work, shop, learn and play in the same area. It eliminates diversity and spontaneity, reducing the city to a series of functional zones. It discourages mobility and exploration, confining people to their local bubbles. It erodes social ties and civic engagement, isolating people from each other and from the wider society.

The 15-minute city is also a tool of political manipulation and ideological indoctrination. It serves the interests of the global elite, who want to consolidate their power and wealth by controlling the masses. It promotes a culture of conformity and obedience, where people are conditioned to accept their assigned roles and identities. It suppresses dissent and opposition, where people are monitored and punished for any deviation from the norm. It fosters a sense of fear and helplessness, where people are dependent on the state for their security and welfare.

The 15-minute city is not a utopia, but a dystopia. It is not a vision of human flourishing, but of human degradation. It is not a solution to the problems of urban life, but a cause of them. It is not a city at all, but a prison.

Yes, I actually made dandelion jelly. It was interesting, the pollen gives a resemblance to honey and wine. I raised bees and made meade years ago, and I suppose that is why I recognized them in the taste of the jelly. After Clif's memo on Poppies, both the poppies and dandelions are on the radar. I recommend looking into books about the local weeds and their medicinal properties.

Another walk down memory lane with Clif. Simple solution .. just say "no" ...massive noncompliance with everything "they" mandate. Our marching orders are found in the Declaration of Independence.... time to cast off these treasonous lizards. Our government does not represent "We the People" and has little resemblance to our once noble, but now entirely captured/corrupted "Republic". We are many and they so very few. Give no more ground to these Luciferian rat bastards (mother WEFers) and their brainwashed co-horts). Weigh into them ....
