The covid circus has fast tracked great change, current inflation figures are far higher than publication, national dept is beyond service and our consumer/producer ratio is not a functional arrangement. We are totally unprepared for the predicted depression, which will cause havoc to almost everyone but devastating to poorer communities. If we are to avoid further social regression it is of upmost importance that we each claim greater responsibility for our essential consumer goods, food and energy should be our priorities. In doing so we not only safe guard ourselves but will leave more resources in circulation for others in greater need. Preparations for food and energy production should also accompany efforts to increase efficiency with protracted thoughtful design, as to require less food and energy. Simple methods and technologies are dependable and should take precedent over modern practices and high technologies.
