This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper Did you ever wonder about the differences in how people behave in a crisis? Why some people survive and some people die?

I’d talked with Selco previously about who lives and who doesn’t in a long-term emergency, and a great determiner is a flexible mindset. In this interview, we go deeper into who can withstand the

Your Prepper Stockpile: How To Add More Fruits And Veggies To Your Inventory
Building a usable supply of fruits and vegetable is difficult for some preppers. Many of us struggle with this aspect of prepping, but there are a few simple steps you can take if you’re looking to add fruit or vegetables to your prepper stockpile. It is difficult in a SHTF situation to get the fruit and vegetables the human body needs, but without them, you and your family can be at risk for a nutritional deficiency disease such as scurvy (which results from a lack of vitamin C) and immune syst

These were intended to be something like introductory items, presenting some of the basic ideas to people who might be seeing it for the first time.

Rig For Stormy Weather - Gary Christenson
What storm? The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high. Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! I Doubt It! Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world? If so,

  Anecdotes and Reminiscences How unbacked fiat money corrupts society 
A well-known story from yesteryear: when Venustiano Carranza was President of Mexico (1917-1920). Carranza issued a great quantity of worthless paper money, which caused much resentment on the part of the population. Someone (whose identity was never discovered) printed up some papers, and these were pasted one night on the walls of buildings in the heart of Mexico City; the papers had the following text: “The Mexican eagle is a very cruel animal: It eats only silver, and shits only paper.” Pres

PPI Uneven Jump Hints at More Consumer Weakness, Trouble at Retailers
The BLS reported the Producer Price Index (PPI) for final demand rose 0.5%. This exceeded the Econoday consensus of 0.2% in a range of -0.2% to +0.3%. Details are interesting. March was an unusually weak month for inflation and April, after yesterday’s import & export price report followed by today’s producer price report, is shaping up to prove an unusually strong month. Producer prices rose 0.5 percent to easily exceed Econoday’s high-side forecast for only 0.3 percent. Excluding food & energ

Stand on Guard for Thee (Canada)
Over the past 40 years, the British Columbia lumber business has always taken great glee in plucking the chin hairs out of Uncle Sam's beard by legislating protection for its markets by way of subsidies and tax credits with political parties catering and pandering to the voting workers in an industry that dominates the provincial workforce ranking second only to agriculture. Each time one of the grey bristles was plucked from that star-spangled beard, the Big Man would flinch and growl and wav
