Self-Reliance: The Educated Path To Follow

I'm not surprised to find that most people I speak with at work are out of touch with current and global events. Unfortunately, many are too busy tending to daily living in a world of their own. A great part of self-reliance helps one to prepare from all angles. Understanding and being aware of global and current events allows each of us to better navigate and chart a sound preparedness plan and be willing and able to do all that is necessary for our survival in a volatile world. As a "Prepper" many things are second nature or automatic, our senses are geared to survive relevant to what ever happens in our lives. If certain conditions would present itself at the drop of a hat we each will know what we must do and how to do it it's all part of being a Prepper.

A close eye is kept on all global and current events, whether it's another country or our own, all the way down to the state level. Everything is connected whether we like it or not. Educating ourselves and others plays an important role in going beyond just what the media tells us. Knowing your constitutional rights can never be stressed now more than ever, understanding how our forefathers came to the conclusions that they had in determining what was just and right for the people, by the people and of the people.

Understanding governments role regarding it's placement and limitations in the greater scope of our nations people where justice, liberty and freedom was fought for a very long time ago with it's people's future and well being in mind that our forefathers foresaw and clearly understood should not be forgotten. They knew the dangers of a government set up such as ours today but they did not know how great the extremities encompassing corruption and deception would be. The very foundation they have created has fallen from grace.

The many facets of our government are broken and is in deep need of re-structuring, each governmental branch state or federal is like a virus, it keeps spreading with no sign of a cure infecting us all on many levels of our lives. If our own government truly cared about it's people's well being our country would not be in the shape it is today. It would be a good idea to revisit the Declaration of Independence. What would also help is researching and understanding politics and all of it's antics in an array of disguises. Politicians are good at telling the people what they want to hear until they reach office and doing the complete opposite once in power. The people must understand that we have the power to throw them out of office, until they take that right away from us if we let them. Frankly, I'd rather see a "joe-blow" from off the streets in office with the way things are currently going now, I really would like to see a lot of them in office because I would trust them more than what I see now in our government officials. If an ant farm knows how to govern their own species why can't we?

History teaches us many things about the past, of the present and the outcomes that the future may or may not bring, instilling values that we may each hold near and dear to our hearts bringing forward a better way of life not just for one but for all. All nations can be great and magnificent, the United States of America should be the first to set the example and be consistent and true to it's nature. We must all have a better understanding and appreciation of the bigger picture and scheme of things. In a perfect world we could live harmoniously with peace and justice in it's highest form, this to me is the greatest nation to come. Until then self-reliance and preparedness is the educated path to follow.

Excellent post! Prepping isn't just method or something we do....It's a lifestyle. And for those who are new, it should be a lifestyle change.

Keep up the good work, it will take a little time and effort to build a reader base and traffic, but I will help out the best that I can

So true, implementing a self-reliant and self-sustaining lifestyle is the best thing anyone can do for themselves and others.
Thanks AP
