The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

More Killed At Work Than In War

Each day 6,000 workers are killed (not counting deaths while commuting). Civilian work is more dangerous than military.
For the last year construction unemployment was 17%, that is exactly the amount by which work related deaths declined for the same time. Many people are sad about the lack of work, but fewer people are dead because of it. Hopefully we will learn and not be doing such crazy things, most of us would not want to do things that cause death.

We are not told of all the deathly situations in the modern work place. A more appropriate way of thinking about the subject would be to honestly realize that nothing is healthy for us today. All we can do is attempt to minimize all the poisons, but that is more complex than we think, for what we might think is helpful so often times is worse. The best thing to do is learn how to live without work, for it is likely that most of the work available today, in one way or another, is an Antichrist government job. We really do not want to do such things. Weigh and see if there is any real benefit, or not, in our occupations. Going to work for a time might be alright  if we are correcting and rebuking all the ungodliness that goes on in such places. But if we do I would not expect to last very long. It would not be long before a rebellion starts against you, so make sure you know your exits before starting. Ever since World War II anything connected to industrialism is related  to war. It is good to step away from the slave labor camps as much as possible. We certainly do not want to be supporting all the bloodshed that is so rampant these days.
