How To Cure Our Own World War Z

wwz

Brad Pitt’s big summer action flick, World War Z came out this weekend.

In it, Pitt attempts to avert a Zombie Apocalypse by finding a cure to the pandemic causing it, despite government incompetence.

Like all zombie movies, World War Z is being used to critique modern society.

In this particular case, it’s the inability of governments to solve any of big, global problems that threaten to unhinge the world, even when confronted with the consequences.

The Resilient Bootstrap 

The essence of this critique is spot on — the big problems facing us won’t get fixed — but this failure to fix things is not merely due to government incompetence as the movie implies.

The big, global problems we face can’t be solved by national governments.

Globalization makes them simply too big (expensive), complex (understand), and widespread (global) for any government, or group of governments.

Fortunately, there is an alternative.  A solution that doesn’t require government action (that isn’t going to happen).  This solution has the potential to:

  • provide you and your family a better life,
  • protect you and your family from future global failures, AND
  • solve these big global problems.

The only solution that provides that result, is a resilient home and community.

A productive home and community that makes, grows, and does more locally.   A networked community that can connect with the world for the rest.

This resilient bootstrap is something everyone in the world can implement right now.  Today.

There’s nothing stopping us.

Sincerely,

PS:   It’s important to understand that the resilience I teach is different from other proposed grassroots solutions.  It DOES NOT require:

  • …buying gear and goods that can only be used if an apocalypse occurs.  
  • …cutting back on everything to live like an ascetic.  
  • …turning back the clock on all improvements to live life as a hermit.  

It DOES require that you live a better, more meaningful life right now.   So, if you want to be at the cutting edge of personal and global change, get started by joining me right now.  Don’t waste another day.

    JR,
    Another spot on commentary on Big G vs. little r. Big Government fails at big things because of the inertia of moving millions towards a monolithic solution. Little r (resilience) isn’t moribund due to the OPEN SOURCE nature of it, it’s all good you do your thing and we’ll do ours and if we like something of yours we’ll use it and vice versa. The best idea rises to the top through affirmation versus the Big G forcing solutions into communities that don’t want it or can’t effectively really use it.

    The real problem is government. Government causes all the problems we face today. If it wasn’t for government in all it’s vast force and coercion, your resilient communities would most likely be the norm. But then again, government, big or small, never saw a problem it couldn’t make worse. And then create a solution to make it’s first mess-up even more of a mess that leaves it in a position to then again bring more government “solutions” to the fore.

    Get government out of the equation and we’ll all be better off.

      Andy,

      Government’s cause problems. Big companies cause problems. None of them have solutions.

      We can build the solution, from the ground up.

    One thing that I rarely hear about is big corporate. This is just as damaging if not more so than big government. Purely because a big corporate has only one aim in life. Big Profits regardless of the consequences.

    I like the way you are teaching resilience. The best solution to our problems is sunlight and open source information.

    regards Peter

      Peter,

      Big corporations and government share a similar decision making system: bureaucracy. Both types of organizations are increasingly operating in ways that are counter to our interests, due to a structural inability to deliver beneficial results to the people they were built to serve.
