In today's video, two Cooks sit down over dinner to discuss the ongoing Coronavirus Catastrophe, with a particular focus on the local economy, in particular the Restaurant Bizness.  We also talk about FOOD of course, as well as local Infrastructure problems we have in our Community.

What I really hope to convey with this video however is not so much these economic questions, but rather the importance of FORMING COMMUNITY and BUILDING INTERGENERATIONAL BONDS.  This most IMPORTANT aspect of preparing for the world to come is the one most often ignored or neglected by both Preppers and Doomsteaders.

When was the last ime you invited over a new neighbor for dinner?  When waas the last time you got to know a person 2 generations your Junior or Senior?

How do you do this?  It's not that hard really, 2 main things apply, SHARING and GENEROSITY.  Give to others NOW, and it will come back to you with interest later.

PAY IT FORWARD.

"Americans who take any comfort from [Trump’s nightly briefings] were Trump-drunk long ago. The unbesotted see and hear the president for what he is: a tone-deaf showman who regards everything, even a mountain of corpses, as a stage."

 ― Frank Bruni  

This week an out-of-control American president made remarks about using sunlight and disinfectants topically, an improvised medicine show that prompted frantic health warnings from multiple quarters. Since the revisionist right is furiously trying to deny that this ever happened, or happened the way that it happened, let's reproduce Trump's statements word for word here:

“I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that.” 

“So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light — and I think you said that that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it [to Dr. Birx]. And then I said, […] Continue Reading…

Collapse: The Coronavirus is not a Cause, it is a Trigger

 

 

 

Is the epidemic going to cause civilization to collapse? It may happen for good reasons

 

 

This is a version of the article that I published on the English version of "Al Arabiya" On March 26, 2020. It is not the same text I published there — but I kept the wonderful illustration by Steven Castelluccia. It perfectly conveys the concept of "Seneca Cliff"

Do you remember the story of the straw that broke the camel’s back? It is an illustration of how overloaded systems are sensitive to small perturbations. Could the COVID-19 epidemic be the straw that breaks the back of the world’s economy?

Like an overloaded camel, the world’s economy is strained by at least two tremendous burdens: one is the increasing costs of production of mineral resources (don’t be fooled by the current low prices of oil: prices are one thing, costs are another). Then, there is pollution, including climate change, also weighing on the economy. […] Continue Reading…

Vitamin RotisserieMost of the focus in trying to protect yourself from Death by COVID-19 has been on the PPE you should be wearing when you have to go out and interact with other Homo Sap Meat Packages who might infect you.  At least equally important however are your Internal Protections, IOW your IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Here at the Doomstead Diner we focus on all FOOD topics related to Collapse, and NUTRITION is the most important aspect of maintaining and strengthening your ability to fight off and recover from dieseases.  Eating Healthy Foods and supplementing your diet with Vitamins are critical for every individual in this Battle of Homo Sap vs Microbe, and they are both something you have control over.  You don't need to wait for Da Goobermint to ride to the rescue on this, at least as long as you have a SNAP Card and follow the SNAP Card Gourmet here on the Doomstead Diner.

Does it make sense to have a well-stocked bunker in the mountains to escape collapse?

Discuss this article at the Medicine & Health Table inside the Diner

 

Sometimes, you feel that the world looks like a horror story, something like Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth.." Image from F.R: Jameson.

Being the collapsnik I am, a few years ago I had the idea that I could buy myself some kind of safe haven in the mountains, a place where I and my family could find refuge if (and when) the dreaded collapse were to strike our civilization (as they say, when the Nutella hits the fan). It is a typical idea of collapse-oriented people: run away from cities, imagined being the most vulnerable places in a Mad Max-style scenario.

Maybe I was thinking also of Boccaccio's Decameron, when he describes how in the mid-14th century a group of wealthy Florentines finds refuge from the plague in a villa, outside Florence. And they had a leisured time telling stories to each other. I don't oven a villa in the countryside, but I took a tour of villages in […] Continue Reading…

Watching Covid-19 unfold is like watching the approach of a slow motion catastrophe. We cannot run, nor hide. We can only wait. The math is immutable, and inexorable. The confirmed infection counts and death tolls double every three days. Tick-tock.

We are told to practice "social distancing," to wear masks, to wash our hands continuously, to not touch our faces, and most of all to #Staythefuckhome. Most do. Some, including notorious ignorami, assorted MAGATs, and fundamentalist preachers whose addiction to positive cash flow depends on filling their megachurches, do not. These people should be treated as if they want you dead, judging from their actions, they do.

On a warm spring day last weekend they could be found packing cars going God-knows-where, on sidewalks with kids in tow, even going house-to-house to talk to neighbors! Amidst all the people on their […] Continue Reading…

The Coronavirus Crisis has brought with it innumerable bad outcomes and blowback, which is still expanding in scope.  Exponentially, just as the virus itself is spreading exponentially across the Global Population on Earth.  There is not a habitable continent on the Planet COVID-19 has not reached, and at this point I doubt there is a country it is not breeding in, feasting on the plethora of Homo Sap Meat Packages walking about and driving their cars around willy-nilly.  Well, they're not driving around quite so much these days, despite the fact that Oil has reached its lowest price/barrel in 17 years.  There is about nowhere to go to that is safe, all the restaurants, bars,theaters, sports arenas etc are shuttered.  You can still go to the grocery store, although you may not be able to find Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Canned Soups, Frozen Pizzas, Eggs and innumerable other items which are also disappearing, albeit  not quite so fast as the goodies scarfed […] Continue Reading…

What Can Collapsologists Learn From the Coronavirus Disaster?

 

Guest post by Herbert Krill

March 23, 2020

 

 

These are interesting times for collapsologists and for anyone interested in collapse. For many years, we all studied the past, historic collapses like the Fall of Ancient Rome, and speculated about future collapses. We studied Joseph Tainter, Jared Diamond, read the Blogs of Dmitry Orlov and James Howard Kunstler, re-read "The Limits to Growth" and "Overshoot", enjoyed "The Long Descent" and so on … But now, something that could end in collapse is really here. There is a very fast decline of things as we speak, a "cliff" just as Seneca and Ugo Bardi and others have described.

Is the Coronavirus disaster our collapse? Is that "it"?

 

It might not "the Big One". But it's a big, fat Black Swan. And big enough to learn a lot from it.  Like one learns from a quake, even if it's not […] Continue Reading…

Before I get into a synopsis of what we discussed in this chat, I want to adress a criticism I got inside the Diner on our Forum regarding the FOOD intros I do in all our Broadcasts now.  The critic was too "impatient" to watch the 7 minutes or so I spend going over the meal of the day, where it was grown or sourced, how it was prepared and how much it costs.  To me, these are among the most important questions we must deal with as we move inexorably into the next stage of Collapse.  The fact of the matter is despite […] Continue Reading…

At the end of my last post I said something to the effect that while I had just said pretty much all I had to say on the subject of diesel fuel, comments from my readers might spark something further. Indeed they have, and at least two of those ideas from the comments section are worth sharing here with the rest of my readers.

 

 

 

Battery Powered Tractor Trailers (EV Semis)

There has been a lot in the news lately about battery powered electric trucks suitable for long distance hauling of heavy loads, following the release of Tesla's prototypes of such a vehicle.

One reader on Facebook was outraged that I wasn't sufficiently impressed by Tesla's "achievement", but in the context of this blog whether disruptions in cargo transport are caused by problems with the supply of diesel fuel or problems with the supply of electricity (needed to charge batteries for electric trucks) is of little importance. We are going to experience both those problems, in any case, as collapse progresses.

Concerns about climate change, […] Continue Reading…

“Stupidity has a knack of getting its way; as we should see if we were not always so much wrapped up in ourselves” 
― Albert Camus, The Plague 

During the incursions of the Black Death, the bubonic plague that attacked Europe in waves during the 14th and 16th centuries, the rich have always taken pains to insure that sickness remains the province of the poor. Some things never change.

Plague doctors wore a beaked mask and carried a stick. During the 16th century, French royal physician Charles de Lorme is credited with having invented the bird-beak plague mask. The long, beaked mask was typically filled with sweet or strong-smelling herbs, such as wormwood, the main ingredient in absinthe, which were believed to filter out miasma, or bad air, thought at the time to spread plague.

 As Jezebel reminds us, Rich People Have Always Been Assholes During Plagues​. In the 14th century Black Death, which wiped out somewhere between 30 to 50 percent of Europe’s population, those who could afford were told “cito, longe, tarde:”  “flee soon, go far, come back late.” As servants were left behind to clean the houses of an absent aristocracy, the swells and grandees got […] Continue Reading…

Another day, another Calamity in the Coronavirus Pandemic.  It's really hard to keep up with this, it is spinning out of control so fast.  A puny Homo Sap cannot keep pace with the Exponential Function.  Perhaps this explains why so many Homo Saps have trouble even grasping the concept.

Today's CoroNewz Special Sunday Brunch Report features an analysis of the "Stimulus" package being concocted up in CONgress which has now balloned up to $2.5T!!!  Gotta keep that Konsumer Ecoomy going even if it means handing out FREE Helicopter money to J6P!

This isn't really about bailing out J6P, it's about bailing out Amerikan Bizness, particularly the bizness of Donalditry Trumpovetsky.  Isn't it amazing how they can find an infinite supply of money when they want to, but during BAU theres never enough for Food Stamps or Medicare?

St. Paddy's Day has come and gone, but this year the Hangover afterward is exceptionally bad, and nobody even went out drinking!  Although I suspect the Stay-at-Home Boozing was even more over-the-top than usual.

In this video, I focus on Local Food Production, with the main Produce we grow up here on the Last Great Frontier, namely Alaska Grown Carrots and Potatoes.  Alaska is best know for its Fish production of course, with probably the best remaining good fisherie in the world and a huge export market for that fish, both in the lower 48 as well as in Asia.  Well known also for our Game Meat Hunting of Moose, Caribou, Bear and Big Horn Sheep as well.  There are also numerous small farms raising cattle, and at 3 Bears you can always choose to buy the local meats, although they come at a Premium Price, about 25% higher than the commercial beef from the Lower 48.

Happy Vernal Equinox – 2020: A Black Swan Trigger for the Collapse

Might the SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus be the black swan event that puts us past the tipping point? The virus itself, and the disease it causes, Covid-19, is certainly dangerous in its own right (though the actual death rate is not really known because we don't have accurate data on the actual number of cases) I wouldn't worry about it decimating the population. Rather what concerns me is the so-called 'knock-on' effects or the cascade of disruptions to our very brittle economic (and political) systems. Yesterday I went to Costco for some supplies (not toilet paper thank you) and was a little taken aback at the empty shelves where some of my favorite items could generally be found. Our global economy and distributed production/supply chains are vulnerable to disruptions. Like people not working in order to avoid contacting those with the virus. As we have seen over the past week, whole countries and most of the states in the US are […] Continue Reading…

St. Paddy's Day has arrived and it's time for some Corned Beef & Cabbage and plenty of Booze today! 🙂  But first of course I had to go out and do some FOOD Shopping for a few items, fresh veggies mostly, I have everything else in my Preps.  I'm good on the Corned Beef for I think 5 St. Paddy's Days into the future, I think I have 5 Briskets in the chest freezer.

It's not a Happy St. Paddy's day this year either for the Leprechauns or the Irish-Amerikan Cops who still run the NYPD and march every year down 5th Avenue then go out and get shit-faced drunk at various Irish bars in Brooklyn & Queens.  No parade this year in NY Shity, and none across the Pond on the Emerald Isle either.  Coronavirus has dealt the ultimate blow to the Irish this year.
