Most all of us are very dependent upon other systems (infrastructure) to literally keep us alive. Naturally, this is a result of many technological and societal advances that have enabled a more convenient way of life, a ‘modern’ lifestyle.
It’s a good thing in the sense of progress, however the thing is… the more dependent we become on other systems, the more we rely on them for our survival… and there is a certain amount of risk that goes along with it.
For most people, this dependence and associated risk is not a thought that enters the mind. But for a few of us, we recognize that it exists, and to an extent we try to offset it with some preparedness.
A question is this… What can we do to become a little more self-sufficient and a little less dependent upon modern critical infrastructure systems that literally keep us alive today?
