As we work through the coming week, let’s build on the most recent Weekend Homework, continue our conversation, and our preparedness planning, with a focus on the importance of low tech solutions as key components of our critical infrastructure.
The world has become dangerously dependent on information delivered by electronic means. What we want or need to know has been available, at our finger tips, and almost instantly, for more than a generation. In fact, we tend to access information on an “as needed” basis, and are no longer the human stores of knowledge we once were. We consume information much like we consume other goods in the modern world with delivery “just in time”.
In the absence of our electrical grid, most people would find themselves quickly, and quite by surprise, in dire straights.
Many difficulties associated with lack of information are preventable with a solid commitment to, and an action plan for, the building of skills, and the development of decentralized repositories of supplemental information. Books are a great way to begin, and offer low tech access to information, instruction, and ideas.
Dedicated to promoting self-sufficiency and survival, we hope you’ll browse, enjoy, and shop for the print resources you’ll want to add to your own shelves, and shop from our Biblio Affiliate. Here are some great categories to search: Homesteading and Country Living. Survival skills and survival psychology. Ham radio. Gardening. Outdoor recreation. Alternative energy. Food preservation. Personal defense. Home school education. Check out all of these and more.
Let’s get started.A Thoughtful Quote to Share…
