What Does Protection Mean To You?

Recommended Posts

I would say stability and control. The ability to have a life plan and be fairly sure you have a fighting chance of keeping to it. The tools to achieve that are many and the ones you have stated would be good for starters.

Families offer very poor ROCE, rather than bringing children up from a small age it is far more economical to import an eastern european, who will get to work day 1 for as little as a shilling a day provided you provide clean sanitation facilities and a sleeping bag in the rest room.

Watch the AUR/ATO though otherwise they will end up keeling over due to exhaustion

Healthy genes , an optimistic nature and a family which is no more than averagely dysfunctional!

Great fun being a spot eccentric though...as my mother used to say there is a thin line between sanity and insanity. ;)

Some decent leathers and a lid.

Oh, unless you're talking about "are you protected from global hyperinflation?", in which case it means a decent lead-lined shelter with built it Faraday cage, a years supply of food, water, filtered air, power, some means of radio comms, some NBC suits, and a decent firearm or two.

Have got the former, haven't got the latter. Neither, as far as I know, have those who keep telling me to get it.

Happiness, on the other hand, is wonderful missus, great family, and knowing that if the worst comes to the worst then we're *all* screwed so there's no point in worrying about. Oh, the odd glass of red is nice as well.

Owning Property?

Owning Gold?

Having Cash?

Having secure employment?

Or having a secure and loving family?

A bit of everything Winkie ....including the condom :P

Lots of baskets for what few eggs Labour has left me.

Shelter, Food and Friends

Everything else ultimately is just flim flam

Problem for us in the west is that we've come to value the flim flam above everything else.

The world levelling out isn't comfortable for us, but at least we'll get an appreciation of how the rest of the planets been living, and what the true fundamentals are.

We in the UK (and the western world) have never had it so good, and the more good we get, the more good we want....we will soon have to wake up to the shock that we can't always get everything we want and will have to share all resources with the rest of the world.

Protection from what exactly?

Housing Slump.

Reccession.

Shortage of food.

No and do not mention the G word that doesn't come into the equation.
