Go through the webs, search terms of Prepper, off-grid, minimalist, tiny home (or) tinyhome, etc. You’ll run the gauntlet of doom and gloom, hit so many ‘do it this way or you’re gonna die’ memes, and so many collapse scenarios, a decent author could write a series of fictions and make bank.
But Who’s right?
Fact is, no one knows. Using history as a precedent, any of them could be, except the extinction level die-off ones (unless that sweet meteor of death visits) (humans are too damned resilient for an extinction level die-off without it being something that radically alters the environment.)
And I have to be honest here; after 11 years of reading them and seeing things only get better while the doomers keep harping on the same things that were harped on 100, 200 years ago,,,
Nah, I’ll keep prepping for what I think is worst case, but I am not going to let the multiple and endless warnings to direct my life anymore. I’m not getting any younger and by the time shit does go tits up, I probably won’t care anymore. And to hell with doing so as a broke dog, I want to enjoy the rest of my life, not spend it fretting about the “what ifs”. Plan for what you can and relax and enjoy the decline/collapse/implosion.
