hi Folks, this is a sort of prepping, pro homesteading hand tools, crafts, make our homeland great again thought of me. But it came to me after years of bushcraft, my parents old ways and especially making home made projects and ordering the raw materials. I know it is common sense, but a very realistic discussion... In a conflict, disaster, economic problems scenario it is not so good to have so many things made in China. Our whole society runs on electronics. But alot of parts can ONLY come from China. Especially raw materials. The super markets run on electronic delivery scemes.... Nearly all stainless steel now a days in made in China... There are more instances, but I think the electronics example is the most worrying. interesting video too: I am not like a full fan of Varg Vikerness. He lacks some sympathy and also is very biased towards Christians (not all are bad haha, ps I am one) etc. but he makes some good points on our vulnarable spots in modern society and economics. There are obvious also very good things going on. Also total downfall and barbarism as a solution to all...rather have smart n sincerypeople get smart and start running the show again...but that is beyond me... Like in my native country, we used to make clothes (boots too), stoves, one of the best wool blankets (AaBe brand, but several more), airplanes (Fokker is gone), cooking pans, tents, sleeping bags, electronics (Philips used to make all stuff here a long time ago). All gone! Like in the 50/ies almost nothing came out of China. We got stuff of nearbouring countries like France, Germany (most tools, knives axes etc from Solingen (all gone there too) and also USA (I have some GREAT usa tools, fishing gear, you name it). Outsourcing has gone way to far. (classic example of mammon) Maybe this discussion is boring. My aim is also not to scare. But if there are folks out there who want a even simpler life. Get back to standards in homesteading of pre 60/ies I think it is very sound My major respect here to the knife makers! woolen and canvas stuf makers Blacksmiths! Homesteaders! Bakers, carvers, builders you name it! This forum is sincere. what ya think? I am worrying too much? or thing have to change? Let me know down below.
