preparing for systems collapse
Rather than picking the correct prophecy on how things are likely to dismantle over the next coming years, I’m going to just stick with what is already happening and plan accordingly. Everywhere around us we can see systems of all ilk collapsing. We can see the weaknesses in the structures and bureaucracies that used to look solid and dependable. Supply chains are strained. Corporate greed is accelerating. The powers that be are intent on making the plebs suffer and give penance for the sins of the rich and powerful. Governments answer to stakeholders, not the common people.
There’s a million ways to tackle this issue and just like there are no two farms that should operate in the same way, I don’t think any two scenarios should be copied directly either. I’ve heard from some friends that are taking courses with ‘end of times preppers’ and I think some of the advice given is bonkers. But that’s because I’m me and that person teaching is not me and maybe what they offer is valid in the context given. So with that said, I will go into the different areas we’ve considered and planned for. But first, we have to consider the degrees of dismantling.
If there’s an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) detonated, things are going to look a lot different than if the next plandemic disallows people from hitting the grocery stores. If systems start being strained and inaccessible, if power is monitored and shut off for periods of the day, then how we react is quite different than if there is suddenly no food in the grocery store and people are out and about looking for some. To that end, if this is an issue that you feel needs some of your attention but you’re not sure what to focus on, a novel that did an amazing job on following the ramifications of systems collapse is “One Second After” by William R. Forstchen. We first read it over a decade ago, but it’s as relevant, if not more so, today.
There are plenty of people that think solar panels are the way to go. My husband and I see them as a dependancy just like anything else. First, I can’t get past the
