One of the original drafts of President Eisenhower’s famous speech warning of the rise of the Military-Industrial Complex written by speech writer Malcom Moos, reads: We must never let power, implicit in this combination, endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert, knowledgeable, and wise citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that both security and liberty may prosper. In the councils of government, we must jealously guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We can ignore it only at our peril. Malcolm Moosvia General […]

We don’t talk much about zombies here at Prepography… except on Halloween when the zombies come out to play… so when I heard that one of my favorite military writers, John Ringo had tried his hand at the zombie genre I couldn’t help but pick it up with an eye towards a Halloween zombie book review of Under A Graveyard Sky…but then I liked it so much I read the whole series… John Ringo’s a military veteran and specifically a veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division where I spent my first few years in the Army.  From the first time I picked up one of Ringo’s military science fiction books I found myself recognizing the characters and the conversations he wrote because that’s how we thought, talked and related back in ‘Division.’  […]

Integral Passive Solar Water Heaters – Intro Before we discuss integral passive solar water heaters (IPSWH), let us talk a bit about solar systems. Increasing energy costs have focused attention on energy efficiency and alternative sources. Renewable sources of energy appeal to the preparedness minded. It helps Preppers disconnect from an energy delivery system that is vulnerable to failure when necessary. It also allows Preppers to be in control of their own energy instead of relying on some distant corporation or government bureaucracy. Solar energy plays an important role on many homesteads, bug out locations and is especially important with many cultures overseas because it is readily available and free. It can also be used for cooling as well as heating. As long as the sun is sh […]

How “Prepping on $30 A Paycheck” Came About Prepper Axiom # 1 – Change your mind and your tail will follow. (Cognitive) The kernel of the idea that led to “Prepping on $30 A Paycheck” came from a conversation I was having with a co-worker one day.  He was not in to prepping  or self-sufficiency at the time.  He was interested in the topics of what I did on the weekend and after work. I could tell he had the makings of a convert. He just needed a little nudge, and some guidance. I finally asked him outright, “You are interested in prepping, why don’t you just do it.” His response was, “I don’t have a lot of disposable income; I can’t afford it”. Oh man, my head hurts. Trying to wrap my mind around a statement like that, […]

I built a panic room in our old house and got a lot of use out of it…luckily only as secure, discrete storage and as a tornado shelter…you can build a panic room too and it doesn’t have to be as elaborate as the one in the How To Build A Panic Room infographic below:

Goddard College’s recent decision to have its students addressed from prison by a convicted cop killer is just one of many unbelievably irresponsible self-indulgences by “educators” in our schools and colleges. Such “educators” teach minorities born with an incredibly valuable windfall gain — American citizenship — that they are victims who have a grievance against people today who have done nothing to them, because of what other people did in other times. If those individuals who feel aggrieved could sell their American citizenship to eager buyers from around the world and leave, everybody would probably be better off. Those who leave would get not only a substantial sum of money — probably $100,000 or more — they would also get a valu […]

Yesterday we introduced some of the Jackson family’s ideas about Finding Your Prepper Homestead.  Today we’re going to cover the homestead evaluation criteria we developed as we searched for The Hermitage in the hopes that it helps you develop your own evaluation criteria as you look for the perfect place for your family to live, survive and thrive.  We call our full time retreat The Hermitage but the goal isn’t to leave society but to have a safe place to live within society before, during and after local, national or international societal upheavals or natural disasters that also provides for as many of our needs as possible.  Below is the criteria I developed to help us choose The Hermitage and I hope that it helps you in evaluating your prepper homestead as well. Like […]

Recently I announced that the Jackson clan completed a seven year quest to purchase acreage for a homestead and full time retreat.  Rachel and I had been considering purchasing acreage for a number of years as a combination hunting/recreation/retreat property but as I served in Iraq I watched neighborhoods turn into war zones and the radicalization of ordinary civilians I realized that the only (relative) safety in societal breakdown lies in either complete isolation or surrounding yourself with the fellow members of your family, ‘clan’ and ‘tribe.’  I hope that by sharing our story and homestead evaluation criterion we help you in finding your Prepper homestead. That said I want you to consider how unrealistic complete isolation is for the average person or family. […]

A Prepper must know how to take care of others, but even more important that taking care of others is taking care of one’s self…so that you can continue to take care of others.  Prevention and self care are important to maintaining health but never more so than during times of great stress, after a disaster and while living in an austere environment.  You will likely experience one or more of those events in your life and if you’ve studied and practiced the requirements for post apocalyptic self-care…you can easily apply those lessons to such lesser disasters and hopefully keep yourself and your community healthy enough to deal with the challenges you face.  Frequent and proper hand washing is one of the most effective actions that the prepared prepper can perform t […]
