For a couple of generations now people have forgotten what it takes to leed a responsible life. Our ancestors ( Parents, Grandparents, and Great Grandparents) had to be pretty much self sustaining. They couldnt depend on the local fast food places or big chain stores to provide everything they needed for everyday life. I believe in doing as much as I can to be self sustaining and help others as much as I can with the limited amount of knowledge and training that I have to prepare and live a more independent life. In doing so you live prepared not paranoid just as our ancestors tried to do.
