Increasing reliance on hyperoptimized world systems. Increased interreliability on a larger spatial and geopolitical scale. Loss of wordly skills. In short, the world is becoming less resilient.
Learning skills that will help me and my family not depend on civic amenities for survival.
I haven't learnt a lot of basic skills useful in taking care of ourselves without depending on hundreds of "specialists" and industry. I would love your help to learn what they didn't teach me in school and college.
