Survive the Collapse

The economy is going to get much worse before it gets better. Here are some tips for survival.

  • * Buy Local * Make sure that you can rely upon local people who use local resources sustainably to meet your needs, especially basics like water, food, and shelter.
  • * Use Free Energy * Heat or cool your home, heat water, and dry your wash with passive solar energy. Get around by walking and bicycling. Encourage permaculture, a local ecosystem that supports your needs.
  • * Don't Work Against Yourself * Refuse to spend your time or money supporting institutions like the US government or big corporations which work against the best interests of most of humanity.
  • * Share Your Truth * Speak out to observe reality, envision collaborative solutions, and empower positive action.
  • * Build Democracy * Support reform from the grassroots up to build institutions on inclusive consensus, establishing multi-party representation at each level of government, starting with the most local.

These five simple points outline a lifetime of work. Let us each dedicate our lives to the next seven generations of humans.
