20 Of The Most Important Barter Items You Need To Have On Hand For When The SHTF

If we have an event similar to the nationwide power outage portrayed in American Blackout, there is little doubt that we will eventually have widespread panic, looting and rioting by people who either don’t care or are driven to criminal behavior because of fear or need.

Knowledge knowledge knowledge. One of the reasons we are in the mess we are in, just one, mind you, is the loss of human history through the theft or destruction or ancient scrolls and scripts.

The loss of the wisdom of extremely ancient civilizations was lost in the burning fires of the library in Alexandria by Caesar ~ most likely one of the greatest losses mankind has suffered and is blissfully unaware of the fact.

We MIGHT not now be in the unenviable world state we are in had that knowledge been there to draw from. Who will ever know?

The point is, books last once electricity is gone. Just think! If the medical and dumbing down systems died off and people had to learn to read and THINK again... if we had pre-judified versions of these writings how much long term healing might go on!

Yeah, I am a dreamer... I dream of building a library of the best works by people like MCP, Deanna, Mullins, and so many others.
