    Joel Salatin: Better Food = A Better Future

    How sustainable food production boosts our ecology, economy & health
    by Adam Taggart

    Since covid-19 first emerged, one of our continued recommendations has been to “start a garden”.

    The pandemic has exposed the fragility of our food supply chains, as well as the shortcomings of our global and national health authorities. So having more self-sufficiency when it comes to calories, as well as better nutrition to boost your immune system, just make good sense. Hence: start a garden.

    In this week’s podcast, we welcome back Joel Salatin.  Labeled by The Washington Post as “the most famous farmer in America”, Joel has spent his career advocating for sustainable farming practices and pioneering models that show how food can be grown and raised in ways that are regenerative to our topsoils, more humane to livestock, produce much healthier & tastier food, and contribute profitably to the local economy.

    Peter Sandman: How Your Ability To Process Risk Can Save Your Life

    Understanding and optimizing your "adjustment reaction"
    by Adam Taggart

    How much do things around you need to change before you start changing your behavior?

    Some people watch the world intently, looking for early indicators of change and reacting swiftly to them. Others prefer not to get distracted by the “small stuff” and only pay attention once change is forced on them.

    Neither approach is inherently right or wrong, but the difference often sets us up for conflict and confrontation when big risks are involved. Those who argue for swift, extreme action are resisted by the side not convinced change is necessary — as the covid-19 pandemic has clearly revealed. Families have been divided and long-term friendships ended as the “Masks for everyone!” and “It’s just the flu, bro!” camps have gone to war.

    The coronavirus pandemic has placed such intense and unexpected strain on this unstable house of cards that its odds of toppling sooner have increased substantially.

    Few people understand this better — from the historic job destruction impacting tens of millions to the social anger starting to boil over — than James Howard Kunstler. His new book Living In The Long Emergency (which builds on its classic predecessor) not only predicted what’s happening now, but lays out what life in the aftermath will be like and how to best position for it today.

    Neil Howe: Expect Creative Destruction In This Fourth Turning

    We're entering the era when a new order violently replaces the old
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 24, 2020, 5:11 PM

    55

    Fourth turnings are characterized by a growing demand for social order, yet supply of it remains weak. The emergence of the surveillance state, a perpetual war machine, increased intervention in failing markets by the central planners, greater government control of critical systems like health care and the Internet — all of these are classic fourth turning signs of the desperation authorities exert as they lose control.

    History shows time and time again that such overreach ends in rejection of the current order, usually via violent revolution.
