An excellent question, Karl. I want to see a survivalist website that emphasizes minimalism. Practices and ways that a person can improve their
lives via saving money, increasing self-sufficiency, tending toward long-term ways of life. Much of the "Sitx" oriented sites, to me, are geared
around......... gear -- stuff you'd carry. while I keep two BOBs and think that's a good thing, they're too short-term oriented to sustain a
Keep in mind, (or I try to, anyway) whatever we are preparing for, it might "arrive' very gradually, as a culminiation of several socieital and
natural variables. Or, it could be tonight. So it seems to me the new paradigm might be to tend toward a phased approach to survivalism, beginning
with things you can do NOW. Things like stocking up foods that you eat. No brainer, as I've said too many times. Once you create a system of
rotation and use, the worst case is that you save money. Coupla cans a week, bags of rice, it's a good start.
I'd also like the site to sell or at least link to places where items the site dicusses are for sale, such as....... I don't know....... canning
supplies........knives are a gimme......... open-pollinated seeds..... heavy-quality hand tools, etc.
Maybe a member's section where people do their own tutorials about how do do various tasks. How many people could go outside with a sharp knife and
make a working atlatyl or bow? How cool would that be to have a homemade atlatyl and shaft hanging on your wall?
