Emergently, then, the Big Box business model could fail, and in fairly short order, which would at least give Americans a chance to self-reorganize the production and distribution of goods in our own country. It sure won’t be like 1957 again, but it would give an awful lot of idle people more to do when they get up in the morning. Wait for it, and plan accordingly.
I will most definitely recommend you go read the whole piece.
Mr. Kunstler is no dummy by any stretch of the imagination and has the rare ability to see down the road a fer piece as the saying goes.
I have to agree with him in this instance.
The deliberate destruction of our economy and the forced patronage of Big Box Stores like WalMart is not going to end as well as the political vampires would like to believe.
For one thing they are very dependent on China for their products.
Things might be looking good for them right at the current moment with Premier Biden at the helm but this ignores the fact that for the rest of us, we have a whole lot of pent up anger, frustration and most of all, drive, just waiting for a creative outlet to point it towards.
Americans are deservedly known around the world as a Can Do people and being told they can’t do something is akin to waving a large red flag directly in front of an enraged bull.
Incredibly creative, hard working and prone to go by the BFYTW principal, there is going to be a Renaissance of the Small Business owner in this country come Hell or High Water.
Kunstler above is telling us all to be ready for that.
We should all be aware of what it is going to take to make that work too.
Local, Local, Local.
Just like it used to be.
Communities banding together to help each other thrive, not just survive.
Legal, under the table or outright Black Market.
It is going to happen no matter who thinks they can stop it.
The numbers don’t lie and we have the numbers.
