    Not too sure about that Hagrid, most everyone complains about having to waste their hard-earned time and money on insurance - until they actually need it and then they are sooooo pleased that they have it.

    You've chosen your form of insurance, likely hope you will never need to use it, but will be happy to have it if things go pear-shaped?

    It's coming, just a matter of when and where. With peeps like Putin, Tramp and Kim the twat playing power games instead of looking how to go forward for the good of all mankind, anyone who ignores the signs will be the bleating sheep when it does especially if we're hit. You're just the 'poke in the eye' which reminds all on a 'peace and love' website that there's a shitty world out there whether we like it or not.

    sure, I could have just kept shtum and said nothing, but I want people to prepare, to be self reliant, not rely on the system, that's takes words on a forum, hell i'm running 2 forums so how am I supposed to keep a low profile?
    Why do you? You don't like people, and the more that survive means more competition for dwindling resources. Two good reasons i would have thought to keep quiet about it.

    everybody is entitled to at least TRY to survive, I suppose its their human right, but not many want to bother.

    yes, I wouldnt be bothering otherwise, like the "it'll never happen" brigade I could just spend my time on fripperies and holidays and stuff.

    The many not bothering is all the better for those that do. Another reason to keep quiet about it all. Human nature means that anyone not prepared will be looking to steal off those that are.

    EDIT - The problem with this app is that it is quite easy to lose sight of what you are posting where. This is dragging the original thread way off course, so apologies to the OP.

    well they can try, but without imports the food stock is finite, it dosent matter how you cut it, ration it, or move it around, it will only last so long. the test will come when it has all been consumed, that's when the big die off will start in earnest, give it a few months and the population will be vastly reduced, then maybe some form of "tribal" set up will emerge from the ruins of the old civilisation.
    maybe we can then start to live with nature and all things natural, instead of trashing it in a search for wealth. just maybe?

    I have never identified with the term "hippie". Although I had my hair fairly long throughout the 1970s (who didn't), and except for that Jimmy Dean revival phase I went through between '86-'88, it hasn't ever been cut since.
    Then, once I started growing my beard out around the same time, the "bohemian" look really started to come together.
    But to be honest, I probably identify more with Byron than Leary.
    I do admit that my lifestyle - growing my own produce, the wealth of handicrafts I've been into over the years, not to mention my musical tastes do largely contradict this personal viewpoint.
    However, I don't drink alcohol and have never taken any recreational drugs nor smoked.
    I have also not eaten a hamburger since '89.

    Lately I have been wearing an old surplus U.S. Vietnam War jacket that I've customised with vintage patches and buttons and a big Jimi Hendrix back patch.
    I am starting to realise that I may have lost the fight and started to conform to a certain stereotype, but I don't care anymore. I've arrived at this look not from hopping onto the freeway, but by taking the long country roads.

    I wouldn't consider myself a hippy in any way... Not like a 60's stereotypical hippy. I'd say the most hippy thing I do was attend UKHippy.com on a daily basis now. (probably something I should have done many years ago)
    I do love quirky unique products and items. I dress to be warm and comfortable. Living up north requires fleeces and waterproofs for 3/4 seasons. And my taste of music is rather too far away from the expected genre. I'm in and have been in a deep dark drum and bass worm hole for the past 13 years.
    But what is a hippy is there a definition of what one is?

    Wouldnt classing yourself as a nonconformist be actually conforming to being a nonconformist?

    There is truth in this, there are lots of sub-culture groups in society that came about because of not wanting to conform to mainstream social norms, the funny thing being that these Sub-cultures have there own own dress codes and social norms that people have to follow to be classed as part of the group, so people are still conforming.

    what an action packed thread! tidy stuff.
    oooh... is this where i speak about me - agh, im on spotlight!! na its ok.
    umm i suppose the beginning for me was being called a hippy when i was very little, mostly for not having really short hair like other boys. and i still didn't understand hippy for the following ten years of being pointed out as being one. but now i think i get it and i is happy to be associated with those thingsies hippydom stands for.
    so i suppose i look like a hippy, ye. i dont like buying clothes cos i can make em myself, so why kinda go and spend money that could be better spent in the black market on some yummy yummmy ... black market food. plus, its difficult to find clothes that you have a connection to if you haven't watched them form and come to life, or been gifted to yer by someone who loves you. to surround yourself by love and good vibes i think clothes are a good place to start.
    yes i loooove textiles mmmmm mmmmm mmmmmm.
    phew you guys have got me goin'
    time to warp up the loom again methinksss....

    Let's analyze this response.

    So I see here.......

    1. Conforming to the concept of not conforming.
    2. Conforming to to the concept of not fitting in.
    3 You say Breaking out and running away from the mould, there would be some sort of rule to make you do that, so conforming to a rule to run away, which fits in wih conforming to the concept of not fitting in.

    Don't forget that conformism is also done subconsciously, as people are pushed by the environment and the stimulus around them.

    'Rule Breaker' is a label.

    Some of you appear to be forgetting that in order to conform to anything, you must first define that to which you will be conforming.
    This also holds for non-conforming; you must first define that to which you do not conform, in order to be able not to conform to it.

    The word 'Rules' means something quite different to what is stated above. Rules tend to be a generally-recognised or prescribed set of principles within a given context. So we cannot say that an individual is conforming to a rule unless the rule is generally-recognised by a given number of people in a given context.

    Hence you cannot conform to a rule of running away from something, unless there is a generally-recognised principle, in a given context, of people running away. If there is not, it cannot be defined as a rule.
