Grow Your Own Food – Protect Your Community from Tyrants

Sounds crazy, but it you were a tyrant, how could you get control of a nation.

How to lose control of your life and liberty

  1. create a food shortage or make food so expensive people can’t afford it
  2. give it some time, let the prices rise
  3. tell the people that the shortage has a solution, but we have to give more control to the government
  4. wait for the us to get more and more desperate for food for us and our families
  5. remind us that the problem was caused by X but the government has a solution
  6. wait for us to beg for food
  7. promise to fix the problem, take more control and take our liberty away
  8. never fix the problem, but its too late we gave away our liberty

Is this the most likely scenario? I don’t know. However there is a way to protect your community and your family.

A Real Solution without the Government

Steps to Keep Control of Your Life and Liberty

  1. Grow some or part of your own food.
  2. Preserve and store that food
  3. Teach your neighbors to grow and preserve food
  4. Help your neighbors grow and preserve food
  5. Your community can thrive

Join me as I discuss how to help your community thrive in tough times.
