There’s an exodus from the city as people hope to find better circumstances elsewhere. As you might expect, tempers flare in the ongoing abnormal situation. By the end of the movie, power and normal life are restored.
Consider how many things are dependent on electricity and satellite technology. What if you no longer had access to the Internet in any way? What if you couldn’t access your money in the bank? Suppose your cell phone wouldn’t work. I could go on, but you get the general idea.
The movie depicts a nightmare scenario none of us wants to face. This is precisely why we must face it. Granted, Y2K didn’t see the end of the world as we know it. Nonetheless, the possibility of power outages is very real, regardless of the cause—nuclear strike, electromagnetic pulse, alleged peak oil crisis, or other causes, real or imagined.
Those who have lived in the wake of Katrina, Ike, Sandy or other storms can vouch for that.
Perhaps we’ll see something similar to Y2K in slow motion. A continually crumbling infrastructure could be the result of economic crisis. What if large areas will not be rebuilt after hurricanes or devastating winter storms?
Regardless of the pace, our present level of technology may not continue to exist. This requires a certain level of competence in survival skills. Matthew Stein has brought these ideas together in When Technology Fails. It has received numerous favorable reviews.
This book is educational, entertaining, and broad in scope. Stein covers topics like alternative therapies, how to create a survival mindset, survival strategies, renewable energy, companion gardening, prophecies, as well as edible plants, first aid, making a survival kit; growing, hunting and foraging, making tools, creating shelters, spinning, weaving and tanning.
How prepared would you be if the course of human events and the failure of technology set the clock back 200 years? Before you say it couldn’t happen, get When Technology Fails and be prepared.
Survival doesn’t simply happen by chance. Click now on the book’s title wherever you see it in this post and order your copy. And be thankful technology today allows you to do so. Tomorrow could be a different story.
