The Asian beetle was shortsightedly introduced into North America by the USDA and has become a big problem. Now check out the methods under development for the control of Asian beetles: parasitic sexually transmitted mites and fungal diseases! What could possibly go wrong? Can somebody please teach these people about the lady who swallowed a spider to catch a fly? And then there are the private corporations whose mercenary scientists come up with new chemicals that they ignorantly claim specifically target pests but don’t realize that the same biological pathways are shared by humans who then develop problems as a result of their use. Perhaps we should pay these government institutions and private corporations NOT to invent solutions to our problems that are likely to result in bigger problems down the road.

Those who understand the Tragedy of the Commons (see previous post) cannot in good conscience succeed at the expense of the common good. However, by limiting their greed, they make themselves unable to compete with those who don't. In game theory, therefore, only the confidently ignorant or the willfully greedy dominate and succeed (at least in the short term) in the unregulated commons.

Exceptional Stone Age Norwegian excavated

An 8,000-year-old human skeleton is now undergoing meticulous analysis. It’s extremely rare for such old human remains to be found in the Nordic countries because much of the region was covered in a crushing sheet of ice until 9,000 - 10,000 years ago.

Individuals can make a difference in their own community but not everyone has bought into preparedness. Research on personal preparedness indicates that individuals who believe they are prepared for disasters often are not as prepared as they think. In addition, some admit they do not plan to prep…

General information

We desire to promote a sustainable higher quality of life for members & their descendants, under all potential future conditions. Stewardship-conscious small communities are recognizing that "it takes a village". They are trying to understand what they can do now to preserve and pass down those principles that they hold dearest, no matter what conditions may come. Giants will be: 1. Providing fun activities which promote a healthy, active, and social lifestyle. We especially hope our activities will encourage intergenerational family and community dialogue that will build friendships, authentic community, and healthy interdependence at a local level. 2. Collecting meaningful stories from our citizens through oral history video interviews, particularly our senior citizens, in order to preserve and share the wisdom they have--both as individuals and as groups--as they reflect on the many experiences of life. 3. Making those video stories widely available to younger family members and community members for generations to come through our large online family tree by linking those stories to people and events recorded in that tree. 4. Providing online and in-person small group forums and discussions where people of all ages can hear these stories and extrapolate core values that they hope will not be lost in the changing times. 5. Acting to promote the sustainability of each person's, each family's, and each community's commitment to their core values by imagining and preparing for times and conditions that would most test their ability to remain true to their commitment. We hope to preserve and share practical heirloom skills that have sustained small communities through hard times, skills that allowed for community and family self-reliance and self-sufficiency-such as harvesting maple syrup, milking cows, making flour, butchering animals, gardening, and bartering locally. We hope to pass down to our children and grandchildren the virtues that helped our pioneer ancestors make it through rough times: physical stamina, practical skills, positive mental attitude, realistic expectations, and practical intelligence. We want future generations to make the best of "whatever hand fate deals to them." Further, a healthy self-reliance has been shown to be important for the integrity of a democratic republic, as desperate individuals who are overly dependent upon others tend to be subject to coercion by the mere witholding of staples. 6. Honoring our ancestors by being better stewards of those things that they entrusted to us. Since good stewardship requires good understanding of reality rather than wishful thinking and positivity posturing, we will research our ancestors' diaries and other writings to help us deconstruct our current assumptions about reality. If history has shown us one thing, it is that "reality", among the various human herds, is a slippery notion, more dependent upon what people "believe" others expect of them than an authentic critical/rational interaction with physical realities. In every community there are numerous colloquialisms that have arisen through chance, laziness, or mere stupidity. The momentum behind these colloquialisms is so great that they cannot be addressed head on for what they are, without mobilizing the reactionary elements of a society. Thus, we seek authoritative sources of reality in order to cultivate a better understanding of 1)the genes we are born with, 2)the habits that are conditioned into us, and 3)the mind. The mind is unique in that, although it is primarily used merely to find homeostasis between the two lower appetites--when actualized more fully it has the capacity to be used to transcend the particular appetites of the self (using"the Logos") under abstract transcendental principles. Thus, it is our minds that have the potential to give us free will, which is relative freedom from both our nature and our nurture. To free ourselves from dogmatic slumber, our Center is using state of the art genetic ancestral research, genetic relative finding, written & oral histories, family tree indexing, collaborative sharing, and heirloom technical and interpretive decryption. The latter will allow us to uncover esoteric interpretations of texts and stories that we might have thought we understood all our lives.
