The debt-based central bank economy which has spread across the world over the last few centuries is dying. It has created a bubble in everything – real estate, government bonds, stocks and even people. As all of those bubbles pop, the phony economy of the globalists will be replaced by an emergent economy driven by the people.
The more invested people are in the dying paradigm, the more loss they will suffer. For those who have transitioned ahead to what is coming, this can be a time of renewal and rediscovery of what is truly the good life.
As globalism dies, localism will become the dominant trend for the future. The disconnected, atomised nation-states of postmodernity will give way to smaller political units with their own tribal identity and communal practices. Suburbs filled with consumers will become villages filled with producers. Trade will become decentralised and small-scale. This is the pattern which always follows a civilisational collapse.
To thrive in such a different world, approaches to work and understandings of wealth will change. Local economies of independent producers, most likely fuelled by local cryptocurrencies with untraceable transactions to avoid authorities, will replace the global economy.
One trend which is gaining traction as we make the transition to the post-globalist world is urban farming. It is not the only possible solution, but given the imminent arrival of the Grand Solar Minimum and collapse of industrial agriculture is a good way for families to prepare for what’s ahead.
As with many of the solutions for what’s ahead for us, urban farming is a rediscovery of what was common until recently. Recent technology enable us to be more productive, however, than our ancestors could have dreamed with far less effort. Surprisingly too, there is no need to buy large amounts of land in order to build a sustainable and viable farm.
Urban farms can even be located in shipping containers or apartments and generate enough revenue to fulfill a family’s needs. The profitability of such ventures will increase also as food prices rise and famine hits around the world due to the Grand Solar Minimum, war and economic disruption.
Self-sufficiency with regard to inputs such as energy, seeds, equipment and water will be critical and become ever more important as system collapse deepens. Aquaponic systems, for example, which rely on grid energy, spare parts and chemical outputs may become untenable once supplies become scarce. For this reason, it is advisable to use heirloom seeds which can be planted again the following season and to avoid highly complex technological systems which require large inputs to maintain.
Urban farming is just one way families can prepare for what’s ahead. Domestic manufacturing using 3D-printing or robotic technologies will also be important for communities who suddenly lose access to international commerce. Services which meet basic human needs will still be required, and so medical practitioners and teachers will be valued in the community, although they will find their modes of practice will shift over time. As we move away through time from the collapse, we will see greater regional divergence between customs, language and racial characteristics. Our countries will become truly diverse again as the standardising hand of central governmental authority is removed.
If we can avoid large-scale barbarian invasions from incompatible, non-Western lands and not be obliterated in the global wars which are coming, we can create local cultures and governments which are pro-human rather than the anti-human system the globalists are currently creating. Should this be the case, and Western civilisation survives, life will be better for our descendants who will revive what our forefathers handed down to us.
