    It takes quite extenuating circumstances for people to start looting in my country, like a particularly damaging storm that makes it impossible to resupply for days, if not weeks. Even then people would mostly loot for necessities, not shoes and iphones. America's dregs of society are simply a class of their own I'm afraid.

    My guess is those have more resale value so they can exchange them for whatever they need.

    The US is the definition of a police state.

    Was going to like to agree... but at least in a police state there is law and order...

    US M2 money supply. This is just as bad as the debt ramp. US is in serious risk of hyperinflation since the world capacity to launder
    its pesos is limited.

    Honestly this same mechanism operates in western europe, at the least in government functions.
    It strikes a little bit of an nerve with me personally.

    I was at the end of my millitary carreer deep into logistics right?. Did sea-cargo, air-cargo, specialised transport, extensive knowledge of international transport networks, etc.

    After ten years of service, i wanted to "cash out". meaning the army just puts all my licenses and certifications i got in the army, and transfer them over to civilian life so i can use them.
    It does not cost the Govermnent/army nothing. They just push an button and send it to the local government's mainframe i live in. and they just print them out, i just pay the printing/administrative costs for doing so.

    The Millitary refused, throwing it on the exact same thing "time needed to hire replacements". I ended up in an 2 year lawsuit that drained all of my financial reserves.
    Anyone tried sueing the Government?...it is an battle you can not win.

    To be honest, when my bank accounts where empty i even made job sollicitations to go manually load up shipping containers with bags of rice.
    I refused to bend any further to the milltary. but it cost me almost everything with no room for any setbacks financially.
    At some point i sold my personal things for an pittance of original value on selling websites.
    so i had money to keep and take care of my dog. He was like an child to me.
    Sold my old Nintendo, Sega 16-bit/Mega drive,N64, Gamegear, Gameboy, PC games in their original boxes, surplus army gear. toys from my childhood that became collectibles.

    undoubtetly some of the worst times i experienced.
    my dog had all the vet care and food he needed, i swear. He was with me untill the end of his natural life.
    I have no regrets for keeping my dog, it was worth it.
    It is just when you are hemmoraging money you keep asking yourself how long you can keep up before running out of stuff to sell.

    After an very stressfull two years, i finally had an job interview in civilian life that sticked. And i was hired on the same merits and job as i had in the Millitary.
    I had this map full of my millitary certifications and licenses. And i had the luck that company manager knew what it all meanth as he was in conscription service in his past.

    you see, I signed in this temporary dispatch bureau. it rents out temporary workforce to company's as long they require it.
    But outside my knowledge after my first interview. they contacted the temp-agency and paid them off to offer me an direct contract.
    In the second interview, they first let me have a go on their planning systems, and concluded with stating they wanted to hire me directly. and wanted to make an offer.
    When i asked "i still do not have the civilian certifications" my new employer only asked "when can you start?".

    Next day, i called off the lawsuit. and told the Millitary to go screw itself and that i quit immidiatly.
    My army unit insisted to human resources i was honorably discharged when they even threatened to take that away from me.

    After 10 years in combat logistics, and battle certifications and medals. i left the millitary empty handed.
    I got absolutely zero out of millitary service in terms of personal development, except for the experience i learned in logistics.

    The point i am trying to make, is that you living in the West. as an government employee are completely worthless. they talk about Western values, greater picture, personal development, etcetera.
    But it means absolutely nothing, all that matters to them is how you can be manipulated and used.
    Any self-sacrifice or sense of duty you put in Western Institutions, is all for nothing.

    If you want to get some personal gain in the Western world. You better be an cold S.O.B that only thinks about his own interrests...and ask for it in black and white writing living in the West.
    Morals, values, etcetera does not get you anywhere....You only get abused for it.
    The only thing that matters in the Western World is how hard you can play the game.
    About selling your skills to the highest bidder, and outperforming your fellow co-workers or offer an skillset to your employer than is very hard to come by.

    I really wish it was different, but it is not.

    Your story is hitting close to home at the moment for me. I will not get into details since it is still developing. I will
    not be resorting to any legal action since it is totally a waste of time and money. It pertains to covid retardation. I hope
    to avoid your level of loss.

    All of us who do not drink the koolaid have had some personal reasons to wake up and leave the reservation. The people
    I link the "health" thread are all personally affected who had to find alternatives. Such people are the ones that are prepared
    to see the truth and search for it. The majority who are not disrupted in some substantial way can live in a bubble of
    delusion that is propped up by the fake stream media and the rotten politicians. When they hear the truth the cognitive
    dissonance pulls them back. It is really like some level of Hell.

    This was in the Netherlands correct? If that's the case than there's a lot of American 'lefties' who are completely naive and who think that Dutch society is a paradise, and completely free of the bullshit you see here in America. It's very similar to how many foreigners came to Los Angeles thinking that it's 'Hollywood' only to wind up in 'Skidrow' surrounded by trash piles the size of a 1-story building, countless homeless vagabonds, many of which are drug addicts, disabled veterans, and the mentally handicapped!

    @ KVS,

    I hope things do not turn out as bad on your end.
    It is not always easy to break out of an cycle you are stuck in.
    I know people where things got even worse, sadly.

    I wish you the best of luck anyway getting to an solution for your issue Wink.
    just never give up.

    @Magnumcromagnon,

    Yeah,..i better just mention my home nation in the future, as everyone knows it by now it seems Razz.
    Its indeed the Netherlands.

    Things are beyond rediculous here, the latest of such examples is the ruling political party taking in an convicted jihadi terrorist into their ranks.
    https://nltimes.nl/2022/01/23/vvd-faction-leader-uncomfortable-ex-hofstad-network-members-role-party

    Incompetent politicians that screwed things up massively in the previous kabinet, are just hired again in the new government on equally sensitive positions.
    Got to meet our woman quota on government positions.

    Taxes here are amongst the highest in the E.U, houses seem all go to refugees who get everything handed on an silver platter, with an credit card included for crying out loud.
    While regular people can no longer afford an house because of insane shortages on the home market.
    We have area's in cities that pretty much turned into no-go zones because of rampant immigrant crime where police rather not go to.

    i do not mean to sound racist, ...but....

    It is okay nowadays, to stab an police officer in the back. drive them over with an semi-truck. because if you are scum, you must have had an poor upbringing, minimum sentencing for you.
    If you have an immigrant background, the police do not dare to touch you out of fear for being seen as "culturally insensitive".

    We got serious issues with immigrant cultures from the middle east  that simply refuse to integrate in society, and seem to get handed everything by the government to satisfy them.
    Meanwhile for example, single mothers that have to take care of kids are left to fend for themselves. nobody in government cares they have to work two or three jobs to just pay the rent.

    Meanwhile our entire culture and traditions gets thrown to the trash to satisfy these minorities to be "inclusive".
    At least now there are dutch citizens and groups that openly defy this, witch results in riots between groups on the streets.

    importing all these intolerant cultures from abroad was a real win for our nation.....

    Girl heads smashed in with an fire extinguisher, girls raped by asylum seekers, police assaulted and stab incidents, in neighbouring country girl's throat slashed and thrown from an bridge...
    Lets go butcher your own sheep during Ramadan and throw the remains just off your balcony.....
    You used to be able to go to an bar and have an good time, now getting shived by an broken glass or getting beaten to shit in some alley by a dozen guys is optional when you accidently bump into guys like these.

    the police show one information-wanted on the TV after another of violent crime by someone with an "lightly colloured skin".
    Its almost an miracle if it turns out to be an white guy....

    And we have various asian cultures as well, but they always work hard. never cause trouble in society and while keeping their own identity integrated really well into our society.
    So its not like it is an impossible mission to integrate and be part of society.

    our "own" people that live on minimum wage have to go to foodbanks and live off charity programs, pretty much never have a chance on getting an home.
    And are even treated as second rate citizens by government labour programs.
    Because,...poor, poor refugees.
    There should be equal rights for all, not special treatment for some.

    Also our government makes a sport of meddling with every aspect of your life by taxing the shit out of everything you might like in life.
    And if the Dutch government does not make your life miserable, the short sighted-dumb idea's of the EU will ruin the fun in living.

    The EU shoved this enviroment plan down our nations throat that everyone has to replace their gas-heating for these electrical heating pumps in their homes.
    witch, no regular citizen can afford. Also, our power infrastructure can not handle the extra load.
    But it gets pushed trough regardless "because enviroment"....
    Yet, somehow big-tech can set up multiple data centers here and that is somehow okay?. like....how?.  lol1

    This country is ruled by incompetent hypocrites that lost any touch with reality, long story short.
    And every year you see this country implode a bit further.
    The fun of living here is long gone. I will not stay here either and plan to move to another country.

    Does not sound like such an utopia?, does it? Wink

    Any lefties that think its paradise here, are going to have an rude awakening.

    Heat pumps don't last 30 years. You will have to replace it after about 14 years. Maybe the milder temperatures in Holland
    put less stress on them. It looks like a racket to me.

    It does not matter if a country the size of Holland goes ascetic when bigger CO2 emitters don't.

    A bit off topic here,

    It actually is an scam,

    Like you said. it really does not matter when considering the larger picture.

    Daikin, this massive japanese multinational is pretty much the sole provider to the EU governments for these heat-pump project in Europe.
    They really sell these things to the truckloads to various EU governments directly.

    Our power infrastructure company's already pulled the emergency brake, that EU power infrastructure can not handle this.
    The EU net is overloaded.
    They put an complete stop to putting any more homes with solar panels on the network, as well as additional electric car loading points and how its irrelevant that the goverment wants more solar and wind power.
    As the power network is pushed to its absolute limits.

    a few weeks ago an substation burned out, and the power company could not re-route power because everything was already at max capacity. They had to build a new emergency power substation to restore power to an city.
    I really do not know how many flashing red lights my government needs to be woken up from their fantasy dreams.

    Talk about being led by the blind and the deaf Wink.

    The EU now wants additional nuclear reactors to replace the russian gas.
    I am heavily opposed to this.

    Nuclear waste gets stored in this massive underground bunkers, and just rots there away and culminates over decades.
    The EU really tries its best to advertise as "safe" but everyone having had an class in 101 physics know how this is an Pandora's box.
    Yes, as long everything works. you can control it.
    When your control mechanism fails, it goes out of control and you are stuck with an radioactive disaster-site for decades.
    It is just the physics of nuclear reactors. even when all the control rods are entered during an Scram. You still need to get rid of the Decay-heat with active cooling.

    People make mistakes, accidents happen. perhaps because of structural failure, computer failure. Natural causes like an solar flare for example.
    The EU is full of rejects that where so bad at their jobs, they are even unsuitable for Domestic politics, they went to Brussels to do the U.S bidding.
    Trying to explain the Carrington-event to these people is like trying to explain collour to an blind man.

    Untill we get ITER operational commercially in 10 years and prove its concepts, i see no other alternative to russian gas to meet EU energy needs in an stable and safe manner.

    The realizable nuclear power option is fast neutron molten salt vat reactors.   They burn the "waste" being stored from conventional
    power plants.   Fission nuclear power does not make sense in the format it has been deployed since the 1950s.   Using water to cool magma
    is moronic.   All you get is formation of superheated steam, formation of free hydrogen and an explosion.   This happened at Chernobyl
    and Fukushima.   These old style nuclear plants also generate "waste" since they don't have the ability to upgrade the "spent" fuel into
    new fuel.   So tons of it accumulate and people fret over 10,000 year storage in mountain tunnels.   Total insanity.

    Molten salt vat designs do not have hydrogen explosions and most importantly have enough passive cooling capacity to prevent the
    Chernobyl and Fukushima "accidents".   Fukushima would have stayed intact if the clowns did not put the backup power generators
    in the basement in a freaking flood zone.   Without these generators the pumps for the water stop working and it is game over.  Ironic
    for a power plant to be critically dependent on backup generators.

    Vat designs are unpressurized and passive convection of the coolant (sodium, lead or lead-bismuth) can keep going to dump the heat.
    So in a disaster the pumps can be disabled, but the system does not catastrophically fail.  The problem is never with the fuel bundle going
    critical by itself, it is always in the cooling failing which then leads to the overheating of the rods in the bundle, which leads to melt/deformation
    which changes the neutron cascade properties typically leading to a surge of more fission events and thus more heating, aka meltdown.

    Fast neutron reactors require fuel reprocessing ability.   In the US, greenie Carter stopped fuel reprocessing.  This was the prime reason
    the US had to send its decommissioned nuclear warhead contents to Russia for reprocessing.   France could have done it but does not have
    the volume handling capacity.

    Modern VVER reactors have a core catcher. Even if there is a core meltdown it will drain into a tank built with refractory materials which will contain the molten down materials.
    They also have enough passive cooling that the reactor can survive for a couple of days without the emergency water pumps working.
