This fits into the forum purpose pretty well.

Good advice for those minions that have not made the move towards higher ground, yet.

And odds are that one of these days, a Gary North prediction will come true.  After all, he's been making them for four decades or so now.
Most people in the world are Sheep.
Some are Wolves.
A very few are Sheepdogs.

Gary is a bit too optimistic about the web as as the antidote to tyranny. We have relatives
who just escaped Chavez in Venezuela and ended up in Australia. If you are familiar
with the situation in Venezuela you know that getting out was an excellent decision.
The web is arguably in its heyday and did not save them just as it hasn't and won't save
others in different countries, present and future. Didn't the web play a large role in
bringing Mr. Soetoro into our lives?

Having said that, I do agree that the current artificial financial storm is the
primary threat and the questions in the article are excellent. I also agree that
moving within the US is the best primary strategy for most Americans assuming
they've already insulated themselves from the financial storms, underway.

Another minor disagreement with Gary is in his domestic-only advice. One
can easily establish a modest outside-the-US plan without too much hassle
and certainly without becoming a drifter or being spread too thin. Indeed,
Gary's choice is British Colombia and you'd better believe he and his wife
have their passports up to date.

I'm surprised he didn't get too much into the threat he most fears: A biological
attack. OK, his article was mostly financial but here's a question I think
Gary would be happy to add to his article when 'looking at a map' and
making relocation decisions:  Is the place conducive to a 3-to-6 month
quarantine should it become necessary?

BTW, I think Wyoming passes that test, as well.

What about the Industrial Revolution?

I love to ponder moving out of downtown Los Angeles.  But there are so many high-tech jobs here, and I'm a high-tech guy.  Seems so difficult to buck the urbanization trend.

I spent most of my high-tech career in LA, as well. As a single guy any
particular job didn't matter that much. Now that I'm not tied to a job
or location my wife's job is the tether because she loves it.

I don't think such tethers need to be broken. However, the marginal cost of securing
alternatives if tethers should get broken is low.

- Passports for the kids
- Scouting trips (Alone)
- Saving to pay cash for . . . anything.

The 'All or nothing' approach is perfect for single guys. With a family I've found that
background projects, such as those listed, are the way to go.
