And a whole lot more than that too! 🙂  When Irv & I get together on the topic of FOOD, we both have a severe case of Diahreah of the Mouth.  lol.  I actually edited this one down to get it to 1:30 hours. 🙂  I was going to chop it into parts to make it a little less time consuming and intimidating, but ya know I have so many videos and topics in the planning stages I just didn't want to get backed up on them.  So you get the whole thing in one healthy dose, like a Bloody Mary with 3 shots of Stolichnaya, 🙂  I suggest in this case to view it in parts over the course of the week, or downlod the .MP3 Audio and listen while you commute to work or are outside Gardening […] Continue Reading…

I am writing this in late March of 2020 and it seems that hardly anyone else is writing anything that doesn't focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. A few posts back I said that shortages of electrical power, diesel fuel and money will be at the heart of the troubles that lie ahead for small remote communities as collapse progresses. I am interested in that sort of community because that is where I am recommending that you take refuge in order to ride out collapse, and where I have already taken refuge myself. I've covered electrical power and diesel fuel, and in my last post I covered the sort of money shortages that occur when you have money on deposit at the bank, or credit prearranged with them, but can't access it due to problems with the banking system.

Today, tempting as it is to talk at length about the pandemic, I'll be talking about […] Continue Reading…

I'm old enough to remember when White America was outraged– OUTRAGED, I say– when H. Rap Brown offered America the simple truth that "Violence is an American as cherry pie" in July of 1967 at a press conference in Washington, D.C. That was long before the Chicago police and the FBI murdered a sleeping Fred Hampton in December of 1969.

I'm old enough to remember WMD. Remember those?  "Yellowcake," the excuse for a Republican administration lying us into the wrong war, with Fox News and Hate Radio accusing those opposed of treason.

     In this week's Collapse Cafe, I got together again with Irv Mills to dicuss another favorite topic among Kollapsniks, FOOD!  This topic becomes especially important during the Coronavirus Pandemic since it gave the general population a taste of what the disruption of JIT shipping can do their food supply, which many people grow up believing grows on the grocery store shelves each night after closing.  lol.  Irv is the Coordinator of his local Community Garden in Kincardine, Ontario and grew up on a rural family owned farm a bit inland from where he lives now on the shores of the Great Lake they call Huron.

The conversation ranges from the Garden and the Coronavirus Pandemic to Food Distribution, Commercial Monoculture Agriculture & Permaculture farming, where Irv has a few differences with a segment of the Permaculture community.

Hope you enjoy this discussion, since there is much more on the Food topic to come from Irv & me.  He's as obsessed with […] Continue Reading…

We are taking a break this week on the Collapse Cafe to NOT talk about COVID-19 as the main topic of conversation, althought it does of course work it's way into this discussion.  It's almost impossible nowadays to talk anbout ANYTHING without Coronavirus working its way into the conversation.

However, in this one I talk with Irvine Mills, a long time contributor to the Diner Blog, who also runs his own blog, The Easiest Person to Fool.  .  Irv is a recently retired Electrician for Ontario Hydro, the Electric Power Authority in Ontario Canada.  His career spanned 31 years as he moved up the ranks from Trainee to Foreman and finally Manager for his district.  He lives nearby one of the Nuke Plants he was responsible for in Kincardine, on the shore of the Great Lake they call Huron.  Not Gitchee Gumee (Lake Superior), that's to the north.  lol.

"There is no genius there, only a damaged human being playing havoc with our lives."

 ― Jay Rosen  

The Trump Administration has decided to embrace the herd immunity strategy as a means to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. Oh, they haven't told you. There was no formal announcement– nothing so honest. The same stratagem once presented as an option to Boris Johnson as a means for the UK to deal with the raging infection, then rejected as altogether too expensive in terms of human lives and strain to the NHS, has been embraced by the Trump administration as policy. Superseding their own previous public guidance, Trump has exhorted state governors to "open up" their states, and encouraged armed gaggles of low-T cosplayers to take to the streets to demonstrate for their own impending illness and demise.

Meanwhile, in the last weeks, a Trump valet and a spokesperson for Mike Pence were diagnosed as Covid-19 positive. Trump's primary concern was messaging: the idea that the notion of Covid-19 stalks the White House would undercut his message that the outbreak is waning and states should begin reopening. Re-election is job […] Continue Reading…

I thought I would take a break this week from another depressing CoroNewz Report to look at another problem we have to deal with RIGHT NOW, which is the Collapsing Infrastructure of Industrial Civilization.  This isn't like Sea Level rise which will inundate some coastal communities like say Miami Beach and make it unlivable in 20 years, it's happening all over the place TODAY!

The problem goes far beyond you driveway which you as McMansion Owner are always responsible for keeping fixed up and nice looking, or your HOA will levy a nice fine on you.  If you have a Doomstead out in the Boonies, is there a Stream or Creek with a little bridge you have to cross to get in and out of the place?  The County of course is supposed to maintain that, but what happens when the county runs out of money because the Property Tax intake has taken a nosedive?  Are YOU gonna fix it?  Even one of those tiny bridges over a […] Continue Reading…

The downfall of 'Professor Lockdown': triumphs and failures of science based policies

 

 

 

 

Scientists normally think that a scientific theory can be good or bad independently of the moral status of the person who proposes it. But in politics, the messenger can be blamed. That was the probable reason for the downfall of Dr. Neil Ferguson, nicknamed "Professor Lockdown," whose moral position was destroyed by a petty sexual scandal. For most scientists, Dr, Ferguson's personal misbehavior has no relevance to the validity of his models, but for politicians and for the public, it does. A lot.

 

 

 

 

You all read the story of the downfall of Professor Neil Ferguson, aka "Professor Lockdown" trashed worldwide in the media for having had his lover, Ms. Antonia Staats, visiting him during the lockdown period that he himself had recommended for everybody else. It was a blessing for tabloids and there is no doubt that Dr. Ferguson deserved much of the scorn and the ridicule that was poured on him. Yet, there are some […] Continue Reading…

I am interested in that sort of community because that is where I am recommending that you take refuge in order to ride out collapse (and where I have already taken refuge). I've covered electrical power in parts 10 to 14 of this series and diesel fuel in part 15, so that leaves money for this post and the next one.

We'll be looking at shortages of money from two angles here. First, in this post, shortages that occur when you have money on deposit at the bank, or credit prearranged with the bank, but can't access it due to problems with the banking system. Second, in the next post, shortages that occur when you have trouble earning enough money to live on because of problems with the economy.

A few weeks ago with much Fanfare & Hoopla, it was announced by Da Goobermint that a "Bipartisan" agreement had been reached to send "stimulus" money to every Amerikan Citizen who could Fog a Mirror, including the kids as long as they were under 16.  Somehow, the 17-18 year old HS Seniors got left out of this Bonanza though.

In aggregate, the amount tallies up into the $TRILLIONS, but for you J6P it is supposed to be $1200, and $500 for each of your kids too!  Not that this amount of money will even cover a month worth of bills for anyone living in any major metro in the FSoA, hell it won't even pay a month's rent in NY Shity or Seattle!  But still… Better than Nothing right?

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.

"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.

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…
