What do I fear? The same thing that may give us a chance at restructuring the way we (humans) do things…or throw us back into serfdom and the new Dark Age: Global unrest and the collapsing of governments.
Food security seems to be an issue that escapes most people, even those within the industry. It seems that a lot of people with good intentions and ideas are too focused on their own little whatever to be able to cooperate and conclusively draw a plan of action and most importantly follow through.
However, now with the world economic crisis rearing to the front of “peak” crisis conditions it will be even more difficult to move true green solutions. Instead, half-baked concepts will be promoted by those in favor of profit over practice and ruin it for those that have developed something harmoniously productive.
There is no easy solution. Everyone has to learn the real price of living.
The peak conditions I spoke of earlier is the looming, Peak Food Crisis. Peak food is actually related to four, now five, other intertwined crises: peak farmable land, peak water, peak oil, global climate change and more recently China itself as a beast of consumption and the burden it places on the world. It was related to me behind closed doors that the Chafrica campaign is a success so mineral, energy and land will not be problems, however clean water is, or at least until they truly get energy under control and can desalinate sea water. But this is a long-term project. In the interim we have these other factors to worry about.
I was born to the notion that as an American I was born free. An ideology that everyone was equal and that the government would use all its might and power on the behalf of any citizen. I have come to understand the follies of that line of thinking as my government, time and time again betray us. As a person that makes himself have too much time on their hands, so as to be able to idly conjure. I have been free to accept ideas with no provable basis of reality, (theories). No worries, I won’t go into that here.
Anyway, globally, these peak crisis conditions are looming so I suggest you prepare. First priority would be to store food and water/ with filtration (for after water runs out). Second would be to secure methods of growing food. Third priority would be to divest some paper into bullion. Finally, retrofit for independent living. Do I sound paranoid?
The thing I like about AP is that it introduces the world to integrated bio systems in a meaningful, harmonious and productive way, enhancing our quality of life and appreciation for ecology while giving each and everyone of us the opportunity the be that much more self sufficient in times of crisis.
If I can in some small way redirect the Han people (commonly known as Chinese) and help alleviate this pressure on the world and keep them constrained within the confines of this government.(Can you imagine half a billion people moving to Africa)? I would feel like I have accomplished my mission here. A life well spent. And under the providence of fate and destiny, I would love to see my (dream) concept of a hi-rise farm supported community come to be.
I’m sorry I can’t elaborate more at this point because I am monitored but would love to answer any questions or discussions via e-mail.Cheers
