Malthusian Fantasy Camp or Preemptive EMP Planning?

April 20, 2009

There’ a NYT story making the rounds today on the Transition movement, which is survivalists and hippies trying to take their communities a few steps back, an trying to wean themselves off of energy and modern society. All well and good, and no harm done, but for their sake I hope there’ a Supercenter nearby this winter.
I’ll admit to being a little sympathetic to these folks, it’s a seductive line of thought, but do we really want to do without modern society? How many iPhones are present at these meetings?

Of course, these days such talk of opting out is downright unpatriotic.

    You mean everyone doesn’t already have a Red Dawn plan?
