Prepped and Prepared

 

Growing your own Food or getting real close with a local Organic Farmer is critical now for known source and critical supply in these times of accelerating scarcity and pricing.

Healthy water supply is getting critical and will continue, especially in the changing climes like California is experiencing in its record drought.

Spreading what wealth you have out of dollars into tangible assets like gold, solar and wind energy, good water supplies is also highly recommended.  What dollars you have spread around to local banks and credit unions.  Keeping your money with big banksters or using plastic and cyber transactions can be dangerous to your savings as we are seeing bankster “Bail-In’s” or haircuts occurring in more and more regularly.

Radiation is our closest companion now for the generations to come. Hemp oil, mushrooms, healthy nutrition and many other remedies for cancer and building your immune system are available now but may not be in the near and distant future.

AS the shit continues to hit the fan more and more and more there will be chaos and distrust as well as more surveillance and more attempts to take the rest of freedoms away.  In Stalin Russia and Hitler Germany, people did not know who they could trust so they obeyed authority, for those who spoke up were made examples of therefore it is critical in these times to build community, to get to know your neighbors and build trust before it is too late.

The internet is going to be a dangerous place to espouse alternative views from the official party line. When food, water, and security no longer is readily available all your Facebook friends will disappear in a nano second. When their is a know at your door, your Facebook and electronic friends will not be there for you.

We are in a period great transition. We have been thrown through history time and again that when certain actions are taken by those in power the result is always, always, always lockdowns and population reductions.

The two big differences now is that many of us are awakening as to alternative ways of living and we are the many they are the very, very few as shown so well by Larken Rose in “The Tiny Dot”

Those that fail to prepare are preparing to fail.  Most know but are fearful to act or be seen as a “Doomer” or “Truther” or just and educated, well prepared “Realist” one truth is certain over the history of Mankind, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail”.

The methods for detaching yourself from this system of control are themselves almost limitless. They include reducing reliance on energy grids, industrial food production, manufacturing supply chains and the like by practicing self-reliance, whether low-tech (canning and storing food, community farming, learning basic wilderness survival skills) or high-tech (installing solar panels, manufacturing at home with a 3D printer). They include sourcing (or creating) alternative business ecosystems of like-minded community businesses that can run on complementary currencies like a LETS system or time-based community currency. They include supporting locally owned and operated credit unions with a track record of encouraging and promoting local business. They include the use of agoristic principles and available technologies like cryptocurrencies to encourage the maximization of economic activity outside of the government’s purview.

Whatever methods people choose to unhook themselves from the yoke of economic repression, it will always feel better to be focusing on creative positive solutions than the problems of the macroeconomy that cannot be influenced directly by any individual. As humans, we are fundamentally problem-solvers, and the Chicken Littles and Pollyanna Propagandists are both trying to convince you that taking matters into your own hands is not the real solution to what is happening today. They are wrong

there-will-be-panic

Studies have suggested that the average person has about three days worth of food in their pantry, after which they would be left with no choice but to scrounge for scraps once their food stores run out. We saw this scenario play out after Hurricane Sandy, when thousands of unprepared people lined up at National Guard operated FEMA tents and temporary camps. That’s what happens when there’s no food.

With water, however, it’s a whole different matter.

Food we can do without for weeks, but lack of water will kill us in a very short time. The events following the Charleston chemical spill highlight just how critical fresh water is to maintaining stability.

A reader at The Prepper Journal web site shared his first hand account of the events as they played out. In a situation where water supplies are poisoned, whether by accident or on purpose, the anatomy of a breakdown accelerates significantly from three days to mere minutes:

Just yesterday that ban was lifted, but what if this had happened in your town? Would you be able to live comfortably with no water from the tap for 5 days? The news reports that I read stated that there was plenty of water and the stores never ran out. That is in direct contradiction to what Steve tells me:

Immediately after the announcement, the stores in the area were rushed for any bottled water products. Within an hour the stores were emptied.  Do not let anyone tell you that everything was nice, peaceful and everyone conducted themselves gracefully.  There were fist fights and scuffles for the last of the water.

After the order was issued no one could give any answers as to when drinkable water would be available.  Those with water were either hording it or selling it at enormous prices.

When toxic chemicals spilled into the Elk River in Charleston, West Virginia a couple of weeks ago we got another glimpse into what the world might look like in the aftermath of a major, widespread disaster.

There were several lessons we can take from this regional emergency and all of them are pretty much exactly what you might expect would happen when the water supplies for 300,000 people become suddenly unavailable.

Lesson #1: There will be immediate panic
