Prepare for Survival Because We’re Moving Backward

From time to time it’s a good idea to take stock of where we are. No need to wait for New Year’s Day or a birthday ending in zero.

We like to think we’re living in an age of progress with our smart phones, Twitter accounts and satellites that can do amazing things, like tell us which way to turn while driving or supposedly show authorities where the bad guys are.

But things aren’t all they seem to be. For example, Monsanto tells us genetically modified seeds will keep us from starving. That one’s quite debatable.

And ask someone in a rural state if he thinks turning his asphalt road back to gravel is progress.

Within the last couple of days I’ve come across two articles that catalog our overall state of affairs. They’re not exhaustive, but summarize key issues and bluntly point out America’s decline. I’ll put the links below.

If you’re easily depressed or think so-called gloom and doom is unpatriotic and un-American, you won’t like these articles. But the real question is whether what they’re saying is really happening.

There’s more to prepare for than hurricanes, floods and earthquakes. If you’re not mentally preparing for life to change as we’ve known it, you’re not ready.

To view the articles, click on their titles. The are as follows:
