It's time to invest in barbed wire, says Moore

Kevin Moore, planting for his future.

The end may be nigh after all, an article in today's Manawatu Standard reports. The article is about English-born New Plymouth resident Kevin Moore, who is feverishly working in his garden to prepare for the Hard Times Ahead - those days, not too far into the future, when we will have little oil, little food, and even less in the shops to spend our lovely money on.

Mr Moore says New Zealand's current way of living will disappear at some time in the next three to five years. Among his predictions/statements:

  • Our society is totally dependent on oil. Without oil, it cannot function. Your food supply will be gone. You won't have anything to eat.

  • You need a decent-sized piece of land. You need to do anything you can to feed yourself.

  • In the future, there will be survivors and perishers. The former will be people who have prepared for the hard times; the latter will be people who haven't. It's as simple as that.

  • Everyone needs to use their mony effectively now. If you leave it in the bank, a finance company or the sharemarket, it will disappear.

  • If you plan to be a survivor, you'd better get in plenty of barbed wire. You will need it to keep the perishers' thieving hands off your neat rows of lettuces and tomatoes.

    Let's just hope that, in the meantime, the perishers don't invest in heavy-duty wire-cutters.
