When Technology Fails, What Will You Do?

Technology is fast replacing the working man and will eventually reduce the work force to bare minimum. Digital currency is replacing actual money (cashless society). Universal Basic Income proposes guaranteed income from the government, whether we work or not. Someone or something will end up doing everything for us; somebody else will be able to control how much money we have access to and how to spend it. Socially, however, what will be the result due to automation and the subsequent job losses? Seems to me like lots of people will be doing nothing and not learning, or knowing, how to do anything. This does not appeal to me and kind of scares me.

Why do modern buildings still have stairs? Because technology fails. When technology fails completely and terminally, what will you do? Will you thrive or panic like the millions of others?
Suggestion: I've always encouraged everyone to do their own research and never blindly accept what someone else says. Do your own research to inform yourself of what things may look like in the very near future and consider the implications of how it will affect you personally.

Don't Be Caught Off Guard: Are you setting yourself up, right now, to be debt free and self-sufficient so that you won't be trapped in a system that you might not want to depend upon? If not, then now might be a good time to take a long, hard look at your situation and figure out what you can be doing, right now, to brace yourself for what's coming.

As the development of machines to function and "think" like humans has progressed, technology is fast replacing the working man and will eventually reduce the work force to bare minimum. And, while the takeover of AI seems to be the stuff of sci-fi movies, we see it happening around us everywhere, everyday. It can do complex tasks faster, and less likely to make mistakes than humans. It makes our everyday lives easier and we enjoy, and even rely on, the conveniences it creates. The idea of AI dominating the world is closer to the truth than you may think.

How can we prepare? By avoiding total reliance on technology, and preparing as if it did not exist, surviving a technology failure will set you apart from the rest of society. Trying to think in terms of "old school" alternatives while using technology can help prepare as you go.

And what if defense against technology becomes a concern? Consider at least these options:
- Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) guns
- Ultra-high voltage to burn their circuits
- Water to short-out their circuits

What will you do when:
the power grid fries
there is no air conditioning
there is no heat
there are no television or commercial radio signals
computers stop (virus, etc.)
cell phone towers and satellites die
there are no lights
there are no electronic games
batteries no longer power appliances, equipment or vehicles
electronic security fails
fuel can no longer be produced or found
grocery stores are empty
restaurants are closed
hospitals are too full to accept any more injured
there is no running water, water filtration or public sewage
laundry appliances or facilities are no longer available
Red Cross supplies are depleted
guns and ammunition are no longer available
pets are viewed as liabilities or food
people, who have nothing, come to take what you have
Police and military are busy with looters and rioters ?

Gloom and doom, you say? That just can't happen. How about the Wuhan chinese communist party (ccp) Virus of 2020? What if just some of the above happened, or were unavailable, for extended periods?

Can any of the following affect you or your area?
Other Natural Disasters
EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse)
Long-term Power Outages
Loss of Income
Fire or Explosion
Crime, Assaults and Home Invasions
Social Unrest
Terrorist or Nuclear Attacks
National Economic Disasters
The Aftermath: Post-Disaster Threats

No one, and no place, is immune.

Prepare For Tomorrow Now, regardless of how bad it can get.


Whether stranded on a desert island, deep in a dense forest, or facing a desolated city, there is one hidden peril that threatens our lives in all situations, and we can't outrun or hide from it; our own thoughts. Having a strong grip on our emotional state, and more importantly being able to control it, can mean the difference between life and death. Because we have become detached from our native habitat, we have no experience with being without our creature comforts and basic survival skills like fire-making. Being comfortable with learned primative survival skills and finding projects to stay busy will help keep the mind occupied on useful activities. Here are some other tips and tricks to surviving and keeping the mind healthy, rested, and in peak condition no matter what happens:
