Are You Ready for Ecosystem Failure and Resource Scarcity?
It use to be that stockpiling food and supplies, owning land and canning garden produce, and otherwise preparing for likely societal upheaval caused by ecosystem failure [search], resource scarcity [search], economic turmoil [search], pandemics [search] and other unknowns was seen as a bit kooky.

There is no need to withdraw from society and arm yourself, though you may choose to do so. It just makes sense to be prepared even as we work to prevent global ecological and other crises.
