In late 2009 I wrote a set of 10 predictions for 2010. I’ll update on the others, but today I want to visit this one:
“4. Survivalism will become a real topic . An equal counterpoint to personal social responsibility will be the “every man for himself mentality.” And not just in rural areas. Suburban anger and fear will go mainstream and suburban neighborhoods will become ever more loaded with guns and dried food. In a place like Lexington which is comprised nearly exclusively of suburbs, this is a real problem. As we have seen, Lexington is becoming more diverse than ever and the suburbs are where it’s happening. This isn’t an inner city vs suburbs vs rural divide – this is true discord in our midst.”
I got a lot of disbelief over this one – “all is well, all is well” I was told. Watch this video from the folks over at barefoot and progressive – this guy isn’t a lone wolf. In fact, I think that he probably represents a very sizeable minority here in central Kentucky. I really appreciate the makers of this video – takes guts to walk into that kind of territory.
