With the world's economic system currently on a pace for a total collapse, with the Globalists' stated goal of replacing currency and cash with Central Bank Digital Currencies, it is time to start thinking about an alternative "black market" that operates outside "the system" for those who do not want to become slaves to the Globalist billionaires and bankers.

Civil Eats published an article today about "Buy Nothing" community groups that rely on bartering and shared resources.

Yulia Koudriashova is a single mom and teacher living with her two daughters in San Francisco's Outer Richmond neighborhood. Her parents moved in with them in March when they were evacuated from Kiev after Russia invaded Ukraine. With Koudriashova's salary as the household's only source of income, the family has come to rely on the boxes of food they pick up nearly every week from a neighbor's garage.

"For my parents, it's very helpful because they see the support of the members of our community," Koudriashova said. "They have nothing, they don't have money, and we are sharing the same budget for five people."

If Koudriashova can't make a pickup, which typically takes place on Saturdays, she will likely receive a text message from host Priscilla "Cilla" Lee to make alternative arrangements. For the last 15 months, Lee has hosted a weekly food pantry out of her garage for the community of people she connects with through the online platform Buy Nothing. The neighbors share everything from food to clothing and furniture.
