Sorry to hear that. So you call 911 and then what?
I am wrong then. I think we should aim for the best, prepare for the worst as much as you can reasonably do.
Call 911, hide under your bed, with gun ready. In your case. Yea don’t trust government.
But don’t forget to aim for the best. Just being pessimistic will at best protect you from negative consequences. It’s aiming for the best that gets result. Let’s face it, we will only get fucked over by bad decision one or 2 times. However, we will benefit from good decision MANY times. Here, good and bad is relative to status quo. You can learn from good decision far more than bad ones.
