This article did identify problems quite well, but the solutions were for the most part really bad.
The authors point about national power grid vulnerability was spot on, but the suggested “solution” was just another added level of problems. Yes, the power grid is vulnerable. But why continue to put our eggs in that rickety basket? Smaller grids with redundancy and distributed generation are a much better plan. In a world without power, the people with microgrids and working solar arrays will perservere.
As for requiring everyone to have 30 days of food and water on hand, I think that’s a great goal. But are we going to form a prepper police to enforce a legal requirement to do so? Are we going to fine and jail folks because they don’t have enough beanie wienies in their pantry?
Fine them? Why? Nature exacts it's own price on the unprepared.
The MORMONs are gonna win!
(And the Amish...)
