First world consumer = First world worker = First world wage earner = First world level tax payer = Enough of a middle class paying first world level taxes (For those who have that job....) === Semi Stable first world republic.

Third world consumer = Third world worker = Third world wage earner = Third world tax payer (The rich always pay little taxes, and always the poor pay little taxes and that third world level middle class pays little taxes) === Third world republic in chaos.

As the dying western republics go to full bore third world the social economic political chaos will greatly increase across the world. The crazier the elites and their lackeys will act on the news, domestic policies, international polices, black ops and engineered events.

In any case about black friday, frankly, most of us have too much stuff anyway....

Society, roads, stores, activities should be more structured toward quality of life and nice activities rather than driving from home to work, then driving someplace to buy more stuff... Most of life in today's modern society is made to go from home to work, pay taxes, then buy stuff and start over again.... It is hard to find a place to go that is only geared for the sale of stuff!!!!!!

Heck it is miracle that we have national and state parks.... Only because of social movements.
