So as I sad I started to care and I wasn't willing to give up until I found out what's happening! And I have been searching and searching... Of course one of the first guys that you're finding when you are looking for this kind of information is the apocalyptic Alex Jones. I got bored pretty soon and I went further and found one of the best economic documentaries out there witch is "The money masters". So I kept going and I've been watching lots of documentaries, in the hundreds, ranging from nutrition, politics, nature, health, nutrition, economics, social topics...
Next important discovery was while I was looking for some cooking books on www.piratebay.org, I don't have any idea how this movie got into the results field and also I don't remember why have I downloaded it, but I've done it. The movie was "Farming with terraces and raised beds" with Sepp Holzer. And so I have discovered Permaculture witch I think that changed everything slowly from my perspective. What followed up was more and more documentaries about this subject, in the mean while I found another big subject that is "peak oil" witch shook me up even more.
So this is the short story of this chapter!

Some time ago I didn't care... The story began a year ago, when I've seen all my savings in jeopardy, when the stock market began to plunge and there was no ending site to this, just then I started to care.At that time I had all my hard saved money into the stock market, without any idea what this means. Of course that I got into after I had a chat with one of my friends.
The stuff went great for two years, but in 2008 everything has changed. I have been watching an economic TV show, somewhere in the middle of August, where I heard about the release of a brand new movie I O U S A, where the huge debt of USA was debated, so immediately I started to search on the internet something about this movie, because I thought that is somehow related with my investment. I had no idea where to start from and soon I've found on You Tube a trailer. And from there on was pretty easy to get further and further just because of the connections the internet is making... Soon I've found a couple of guys that where talking about financial problems and what will happen in the future in the financial sector.
At the beginning I was amazed how this guys could see all this coming and how clear they have explained the problems. Of course as soon as I figured out that the situation is bad and will get worse I withdrawn all of my savings! I think I can say that I had jumped out of the train on it`s last stop. I clearly remember that I have sold my last stock on a Friday, the last Friday before Lehman Brothers and Morgan Stanley bankruptcy on Monday was announced. Everybody knows that on Monday the stock markets around the world tanked. Then I started to CARE! It is sad for me that I had to lose half of my savings, but if I wouldn't care at all I could have easily lost 90% until now.
