After initial success in live video streaming ‘Yukon Madness’ to over 20,000 viewers, the L. Ron Hubbard Golden Age has raised the bar for its viewership and popularity.

“After initial success in live video streaming ‘Yukon Madness’ to over 20,000 viewers, the L. Ron Hubbard Golden Age has raised the bar for its viewership and popularity,” says Executive Producer Meliva Koch and “we are now preparing to showcase ‘The Crossroads’ by L. Ron Hubbard which humorously depicts the beginning of government subsidy to farmers during the Great Depression.”

The story centers around Farmer Eben Smith who is intent on bringing his crops to market despite his government’s baffling policy of paying him to plow them under. Defying this illogic and after setting off for the big city to sell his crops he encounters something equally strange – a crossroads in time. Unaware of the circumstances that led to the appearance of the crossroads, Eben figures it is as good a place as any to do business and begins to trade his vegetables with anyone who shows up for brandy, gold and guns with aliens, an elderly man and militiamen.

L. Ron Hubbard’s Farmer Eben in “The Crossroads” is not too dissimilar to the father of Major Major in Catch 22, written by Joseph Heller and published in 1961, who makes a good living not growing alfalfa. “The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government gave him, and he spent every penny he didn’t earn on new land to increase the amount of alfalfa he did not produce.”

Since the drought and the Great Depression in which “The Crossroads” is set, the U.S. government has protected farmers against unpredicted weather and hardship. To this day, farm subsidies harvest $20 billion a year from taxpayers’ pockets.

“The Crossroads” is an original and comical view on the absurdity of being paid to produce nothing, a farmer’s quest to defy this bizarre government policy and his encounter of a strange crossroads in time where he wreacs havoc ― only to set off for home as if nothing had happened.
