Our Goal Now Should Be the Basic Necessities

As Dmitry Orlov puts it in his hilarious address to a San Francisco audience

"What should their (Congress and the Obama administration) realistic new objectives be? Well, here they are: food, shelter, transportation, and security. Their task is to find a way to provide all of these necessities on an emergency basis, in absence of a functioning economy, with commerce at a standstill, with little or no access to imports, and to make them available to a population that is largely penniless."
