Ponder Life Without Electricity


Imagine for a moment what you would do if faced with the prospect of no power. Once you got past your initial panic, what would be your first move? Cut off from the world, no internet, cell phone , or television, would you hunker down waiting to be rescued or would you rise to the occasion? Forget your bank or credit cards, pumping gas, or running to the corner store. Would you try to find water? Perhaps you’ve taken the time to get to know your neighbours, would you pool resources?

An automated world makes it impossible to get money. Gas pumps run on electricity. As the saying goes – Three days, or nine meals to anarchy. Would you try to leave the city before the phenomenon known as “mass migration” set in on the third day? Do you have water? How about food, or resources to trade for supplies you need?
