I’m going to be writing a new section that will deal with the road ahead. As far as I can see it will be fraught with potholes, obstacles, and unforeseen objects that will make our journeys difficult.
When I say that we (you, I, and everyone else) ought to have 6 months to a years worth of food on hand I’m not saying this as a survivalist or a fear stricken lad. We are at a juncture.
The juncture mainly consists of a failing global monetary system and an overexploited Earth. Global warming may be a real issue, but one doesn’t need to go down that road to see all the other red flashing warning signs that state simply:
WARNING: Cheap energy is about all used up. Expansion, growth, and prosperity were due to cheap energy. Without this life will be VERY different. I repeat WARNING.
Don’t get me wrong, with this changing future there will be plenty of opportunities, but don’t expect it to be filled with the incessant need for more things. Sure we may have the need for more things, but they will be things of need not things of excess. Our “golden age” has ended. We have lived off the surplus’s of the East for long enough, and all we have to show is a massive debt, and deteriorating economy, which will have far reaching implications.
Look for a new section that deals with the road ahead and preparing for it. I hope you are mentally prepared for a transition. Neither you nor I knows exactly what it will look like, however I can place various ideas on a gradient with two extremes.
