Do you REALLY need that ham license?

Freax if money is an issue for you then there's always the option of getting a job. You've said a number of times that you would like to relocate to the U.S.. Have you actually looked into that in any detail ? You may find that there are barriers to doing that due to a lack of financial resources and education.

Every country has its issues and that includes Australia . Tony Abbott desperately wants to bring in a number of policies in the name of welfare reform. These include compulsory income management as well as only getting welfare payments for 6 months out of 12 in every calendar year. For the most part I'm anti those reforms. However there are times when I hear about people who are intractability abusing the system then one starts to rethink their stance.

Self-sufficiency comes in many forms and what you're describing, over-population and lack of economic opportunity, is pervasive everywhere. Welcome to global depression 2.0. In nature, over-population is a self-correcting condition.

You're self taught and have critical thinking skills. I would make the best of the present situation while you can.

Unfortunately, whether or not you believe the bible, things aren't going to get better anytime soon. At least not if TPTB have anything to do with it. They're too greedy. So, if those in power won't lift a finger to help the plight of man, what hope is there? Only one, to resist, and it comes back to self-sufficiency. It doesn't help that you're stuck on a prison island with little chance of escape. It sounds like you're already making the best of your circumstances.

If you believe the bible, then there's that hope, too. Either way, the world is what it is, and there isn't too much anyone can do about. On a local scale, there's lot's you can do regarding building community.

I can't help but think Australia is a legacy of the British feudal system, with much the same problems, made worse by over-crowding and socialist policies. The natural end of these dynamics will be simply wide scale riots, starvation, and death, thereby correcting the population problems and the big reset. If the problems are, there are too many people for too few jobs, there are three alternative, providing social welfare, which we've seen only creates generations of dependence. Providing more jobs, or culling the population. I think we're headed for the big cull. But we'll see.

Keep your head down, Freax, which may be difficult, depending on what you meant by your height being a detriment to employment.


Honestly Freax, you need to spend less time on the Internet, and more time interacting with real happy people who will challenge your negative view by the life they live, rather than just re-enforce it, which is what selective reading on the Internet does.  Your view of reality is so skewed, with so many errors of fact in many of your posts, it's rather sad. 

I really feel for you man, and would like to help,, even if it's just as someone you can talk to.  Send me a PM with your phone number if you like.  I'll be happy to call you, and we can chew the fat.

This thread will be pleased to know that I've just found a job.
