The world today is in a constant state of peril, some would say on the edge of an societal collapse . Everywhere you look whether it’s the newspapers, on-line or TV you are repeatedly inundated with images and stories of despicable acts of real life horror. These stories seem to have no limit to the level of how far we as humans will go to test the bounds of suffrage. We live almost in a constant state of fear, depression and anxiety of all the things around us. It’s no wonder so many people take medication for all the ailments that afflict us as people, or worse yet, go crazy and commit heinous acts of atrocity against their fellow human beings.
What are deviant measures you may be asking? Deviant measures are anything you can do on a personal level making the world and your personal life a better place to exist. If you work for someone else and you are reliant every week on a paycheck to barely pay your bills week to week, you may want to consider downsizing your life, being committed to living within your means, paying down debt or even starting a small work from home business on the side. Anything you can do to be less reliant on someone else or the system to support your family the better. Make no mistake if you are going to a job to earn a paycheck, YOU ARE RELIANT ON SOMEONE ELSE.
Lets be honest we live in a violent world. It appears everyone is out to take from someone else, what could me true in a societal collapse. I respect the police very much as they have a very complicated, dangerous job, however police are there to react, they don’t prevent. We live in an overcrowded angry society where most people cannot meet the basic necessities anymore. We are living in a powder keg that is ready to explode at any moment. If you don’t have the ability to protect yourself and your family YOU ARE RELIANT ON SOMEONE ELSE to do it for you.
Deviant measures can also be acquiring a skill that would be required in a societal collapse. Let me clarify a real life skill such as; gardening or fishing. Computer programming is not a skill, it’s a profession. Computer programming will not provide heat when there is none, fire does that. It will not provide food for your family when there isn’t any to be had, gardening and hunting do that. I am a firm believer that all humans should have the basic skills required to live regardless of how much food Wal-Mart has or how cheap gas is. Humans have survived on this planet of a long time through many catastrophic events because we had the skills to do so. Most of these skills are being forgotten in our illusionary world of convenience. All the access we have to food, medicine and shelter is only good as long as it’s there. The only skills that truly matter and will last are the real skills you can acquire and pass down to the next generation.
