so we have stayed in business until this point. i guess my documentation will be my own little journal of the downfall or survival of my own little version of American Enterprise, tinged with political and economic opinion. i do firmly believe we, as the nation we knew it, are done. this is my attempt at reasoning through our experience as builders in a flailing nation from the apex of greed in society, to its eventual destruction of current form. i dearly hope that as a nation and species we come out of this era with a new idea of existence and societal norms that is as evolutionary as the movement from serfdom to freedom was (until the ideal was corrupted by the corporate state and its cronies we elect). and i hope our present return to serfdom is stopped in its tracks and reversed.
