December 2012…

ConfrontationIts time to get more serious about this.  The only thing worse than being ignorant and unprepared is knowing about imminent danger and still failing to prepare for it.

Its mid-December and the decay and fragility of “the system” before the onslaught of potential catastrophic disruption is palpable.  Even without a galactic alignment/alien invasion/solar super-cycle, the threats are substantial enough.

The global economic situation continues to list like a wounded three-master on a stormy sea.  Tensions on the Middle East chess-board, between the US, China and Russia, persist.  The summer of 2012 saw a massive drought crippled more than 60% of US corn production.  In October a freakish super-storm dealt a hell of a blow in New York/New Jersey, that should serve to make everyone wake up and realize; the threat is real and multi-faceted, and the government is not equipped, nor necessarily even willing, to look after you.

Its time to make this a critical part of our life skills education, a major training, tools and supplies investment, and a lively subject of family discussion during the Christmas holiday season.  I for one am ready to begin by ordering the exceptional quality course materials from David Morris (Urban Survival Guide) and Mike Adams and Daniel Vitalis (Natural News/Surthrival).

Food Beats Gold

This recent article at NaturalNews.com makes a strong case why the sentiments around holding gold and silver, especially as a crash currency, may be somewhat misplaced.

“Agriculture’s been a horrible business for 30 years. For decades the money shufflers, the paper shufflers, have been the captains of the universe. That is now changing. The people who produce real things [will be on top]. You’re going to see stockbrokers driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors, because they’ll be working for the farmers. It’s going to be the 29-year-old farmers who have the Lamborghinis. So, you should find yourself a nice farmer and hook up with him or her, because that’s where the money’s going to be in the next couple of decades.”

The prime directive

Like children in the forest...

Why am I writing a blog about survival, survivalism, emergency preparedness, self-reliance etc?  Aren’t there enough out there? No, there aren’t. And there certainly aren’t enough with a holistic, nature-based, positive perspective, for sure.  Also, my primary motivation is to learn and apply readiness skills and knowledge for the benefit of my own family, and in the process, share this information with others.

There is a business opportunity in it, as well.  A product or service that is of great value to a society at a particular time in its history should be embraced and distributed by any entrepreneur attracted to the adoption and practices of those values. 

Making a difference.  As the ‘perfect storm’ of social, environmental and economic paradigm shift develops, many of our cherished causes and issues will find themselves adrift as the urgent and suddenly pervasive aspects of life, building resilient communities and survival smarts take precedence.  Survivalism, or Personal Preparedness, or Readiness, whatever you wish to call it, is poised to become the biggest human rights cause for generations.  We’re all impacted by the realities at play now.  Our children deserve we act in responsible, practical ways to prepare not only our homes and persons, but our consciousness as well.  To resist everything from hurricanes to police state repression, and embrace everything from cellular super-food health-care to martial arts and meditation.  It is truly a time for warriors, now.
