Not too long ago a video was posted on YouTube called If I Wanted America to Fail. This video holds a lot of truth about These United States, but presented the information in a negative manner, without answers on how to fix the problems that it brings to light. Sure, you can read the photo negative of the comments on why America has the problems that we do and see what the solution is, but it doesn't really present things that the individual can do to help.
Jack Spirko did a segment on it during one of his TSP podcasts where he called the survival podcast community to action to create a video response that highlighted some solutions and some specific actions that each of us can take to make things better. This is the best video response as chosen by the community: If I Wanted to Save America.
I'll tell you that Jack and his Survival Podcast have been an inspiration to me for the past couple years. If you are looking for something helpful to listen to, or even something more than talk radio, commercials, and an occasional song to fill your commute or to listen to while you mow the lawn, give it a shot.
So, as this is the Survival:WWYD blog, may I suggest that you watch the two videos, especially If I Wanted to Save America if you don't want to watch both, and let's hear what do you plan to do to make your place better. Start with yourself, your family, your community. I'll warn you, though, even a small step towards more freedom... more self sufficiency can be addictive and cause you to want even more. Give it a try, it may just be the best addiction you can have.
