I was/am hoping more than not, that the questions will resonate with others, NOT to get depressed, but move in/towards a better direction.
I am doing much of what you posted about. I have even researched alternative building materials and have toured straw bale housed. Quite cool, literally.
This is the big one: "If we refuse to buy what is offered, watch how fast we will be offered what we WILL buy."
Most of us on Curezone have moved into other priorities and purchase differently, BUT I have to admit, I buy whole food supplements and am a little miffed that I feel I have too due to the VERY poor quality of food. I spend good money for food and I want it to be life giving NOT life robbing.
