Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country. William Jennings Bryan

From the ashes of a once great empire, a new people rose up. Common folk who made the best out of a terrible situation, and became the inspiration for the future generations they created a new world for.

Fortress Farm books suggest a theory for how the modern world could spin out of control. But there are many other dangers to the fragile society we live in. I've cited some on the Research Links page, which I'll continue to update throughout the series. 


While I'm not a fan of Ayn Rand's personal beliefs, politically she continues to be validated by current events. Here's one of her best passages from Atlas Shrugged:


"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing;
when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors;
when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work;
and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you;
...you may know that your society is doomed."
Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand


Even now, our culture seems to be slipping into madness. As one person, or one small group of people, what can you do to stop it? Perhaps we don't like the answer, so we simply give up and await the inevitable. Does it have to be so?


If you wish to protect yourself, and future generations, please consider the following ideas for rebuilding local communities:


  • Return to Township led government, with local officials selected by sortition. County officials are selected from township, state leaders selected from county, and federal selected from state. A true government of the people, with limited interference in the affairs of citizens.
  • Creation of Micro Bio-fuel Refineries - eliminating our reliance on unreliable fuel sources and keeping millions of dollars in our own communities.
  • Alternative Currency - begin weaning yourself off of fiat currency, regardless of issuer. Create a system of barter and trade with others in your area, utilizing some physical token that may be exchanged for an item of value. In the Fortress Farm books, our heroes use old Quarter coins to represent a quarter bushel of grain. 
  • Grow Local, Buy Local - Encourage local food supply by purchasing/trading with neighbors. I find myself amazed at how little boxed food I have to purchase, and how much less I eat, when I plan meals around fresh meat and produce.
  • Know Thy Neighbor - Good or bad, how will your neighbors react in the case of a major catastrophe? Now is the time to establish honest relationships with those who live closest to you.
  • Create a Cooperative - In the books, our heroes created their bio-fuel and food cooperative long before the Great Reset brought on the new dark age. What can you build a cooperative around? Can it include a group of people of like mind that you can depend on in the case of a major emergency? What about a health carecooperative or clinic? 
  • Return to Local Policing - Local control of law enforcement. In conjunction with local townships, make county sheriffs - accountable to the local citizenry - the primary peace officers. 
  • Disband all regional and national agencies controlling schools - Return all control of local schools to elected school boards. No national mandates, no enforced federal curriculum. 
  • ​Return all locally generated taxes to community/county where generated to be distributed via Township Government. County Board to be made up of elected Township Supervisors.


I know you have plenty of great ideas also. Let's figure out how to thrive after the Great Reset, not just survive.
