    The Jerusalem Post

    Reported yesterday that U.N officials believe that the U.S. is planning a “tactical assault”in Iran with an aerial bombardment on an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program.”The bombing will be massive but limited to a specific target”We shall see…

    Thanks Steve

    I think your right. At this point there is little interest in wild-crafting, gardening and survival skills even amount my children and Grand-children. But when the student is a ready….

    Thankfully, I can still work a lot of young people under the table provided I get my post lunch nap. Lol

    I hear you.

    Having originated in a farming community, worked a long career as an engineer in electric power generation, water and wastewater/sewer, I too have plenty to offer.

    With the current trends advancing over the next 10 years society will be stressed.  There will be choices to be made.  Only those with the strength, health and ability to contribute will be valued by “the cell phone” generation.

    Those who are fortunate enough at 75 years of age to be one of the valued choices, I suspect, will be in the minority.

    Stay healthy, fit and good luck with deploying your assets.

    “Couple climate change with the other issues and the fact that I am mid 60’s already, what is the likelihood this society will value my existence 10 years from now to keep me around anyway. (How much room/tolerance will there be for people in their 70’s and 80’s?)

    “It” is coming.  How many years I personally have left is a crap shoot.  LOL.”

    Steve –

    I am right there with you in age but have a different perspective.  Young people know how to use their cell phones utilizing all the latest apps and features.  I on the other hand can walk outside my front door and point to a whole lot of plants that are edible or provide medicinal support, or can kill you. I can live without electricity, running water or indoor plumbing. I have lived that life.  If people are smart they would look around and find an elder who has valuable skills.  WE might just become an extremely valuable resource.

    Not a black swan

    In it’s original context a “black swan” describes something totally unseen, unexpected. ergo, if you can describe it, it is NOT a black swan. The better term I’ve seen used is “gray rhino”: not uncommon, high impact and can be seen coming, even if in the distance

    Norway

    Its much easier to be socialist when you have oil money. 🙂

    Too true. I wish they hadn’t cited Norway but rather Sweden, Denmark or Germany, pretty sure none of those have much or any natural resources beyond some coal.

    To my mind those are 3 countries that certainly show capitalism can go together with strong welfare policies, to my mind necessary to ensure society doesn’t get ripped apart by inequality.

    The Netherlands is another one to avoid as an example as up until recently they had plenty of natural gas to fund their strong welfare policies.

    Of course Europe’s ‘capitalism’ has devolved into a dangerous unfree and uncompetitive market capitalism just as in the US, with the ECB having just as much of a corporate welfare programme as the US treasury/FED in the cartoon above.

    Learned a lot.

    Thanks for this interview Chris, I learned a lot even though it’s not quite feasible for me yet.  I hope someday soon it will be.  I really enjoy the content that helps one think in an aspirational yet realistic manner, rather than the alternatives.

    I’d love more discussion, especially from anyone else who’s set up a similar structure and can help to weigh the various options.  Did you look at any other providers or structures?
