    What I don’t put out in public, besides my daily reminder to “start a garden,” is that I foresee a particularly strong possibility that things will get a lot worse before they get better.

    Social unrest, increases in crime, and food shortages — dangers like that.

    So to shield myself and those I care about, the biggest new initiative I’m undertaking in my own personal life is…. (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Should You Relocate To A More Resilient Area?

    What factors to look for when considering relocating
    by Adam Taggart

    Likely a symptom of growing social unease, we’re seeing a surge in interest amongst our readership in relocation.

    Many are folks living in urban and suburban areas worried that local resources and/or rule of law will not hold up well during a serious economic crisis, civil disorder or natural disaster.

    Others have watched Peak Prosperity readers successfully transition to more resilient destinations or even build their own self-sufficient homesteads.

    Specifically, we’re seeing a hunger for guidance on the key factors to assess when asking:

    However, whether you’re a self-reliant homesteader or just want to cut away from your food budget, raising pigs (of the porcine variety) is a great way to become more self-reliant and sufficient. If you raise your own meat in any scenario, you will have more control over how it is raised and fed, and you can make sure that it is essentially raised organically (whether or not you apply for organic certification).
