Thanks to our total dependency on technology and that services are cut to the bare bones we are far less resilient or capable of surviving major disruptions in the fuel and food supply chain.
Back in the day our food was locally produced and supplied,now it mostly comes from abroad.
The grain we produce goes to animal feed.Virtually nothing we depend on is produced here.Nor is our fuel.
Every essential service we rely on is technology controlled therefore susceptible and vulnerable to disruption.
Everyone seems to think we'll be ok as we have the internet and mobile phones but theyll be the first things to fail or be turned off by government in any civil collapse.
We do indeed live on very thin ice.
