106. No
But hoarding does not help anyone.

I think if you try a different tack,Take care about others and quit defending your territory,you might find things become different,around you.

Sure people don't like being ripped off.Nobody LIKES it.
I don't.

But I don't cry over losing things .I cray over losing loved ones.Traumas,abuse others suffering and my own suffering.

When you are going through the kind of trauma where you have no control over what happens you have two options on how you deal with it. You can follow instincts and cling tighter to your stuff fortify defenses etc.. Or you can let go,give up on controlling the impossible,stop wasting effort patrolling and policing, and reevaluate your worldview to prioritize what matters most. To me Loved ones people,animals living beings they matter most.... Property can be replaced, bought,fixed..a loved one,a neighbor,an elderly Friend cannot..

So I made a decision. If a disaster strikes I will not hole up with a gun and shoot trespassers.I will help out.Even if I am scared shit-less and could get killed I will give.Because what is my life worth really if it is not shared?What is property for if it helps no one? What is control worth in a world where we control nothing?

I have been through traumas before..I have been torttured..I got PSTD. And I cannot run away if something happens and I could have helped someone. My heart will not tolerate such self deceptions and selfish games out of me.Someday I will die,and when I do I do not want it to be in vain or from me cowing in fear defending a bunch of junk that I think is mine,that could be used to help someone NOT face what I faced...
