Free Resource of the Day - Feb. 24

2-24-2021 -  Today's FREE resource:  A Plan for Food Self-Sufficiency - This excellent article is available for free on the Mother Earth News website. You can find other free articles on self-reliance, organic gardening, renewable energy and other topics by browsing their website.

Food is such an important resource - only oxygen and water are more important - and I firmly believe we will experience high food inflation, and potentially even scarcity - over the next few years. I strongly urge people to raise at least some food on their own (gardening, fruit and nut trees, backyard chickens, etc.), if at all possible. Even if you live in an apartment, there are still options such as container and window-sill gardening, or joining a community garden. I have published many articles on food production to the Dystopian Survival website, which  you can find by clicking here

Free Resource of the Day - Feb. 22

2-22-2021 - Today, I point you to TWO free resources, both from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS). The Mormons have taught/required preparedness and self-reliance of their members for generations, and have accumulated much practical knowledge on the subject. You can get a free download of the LDS Preparedness Manual, by clicking the link to visit their website (you'll have to give an email address to download the most recent edition). If you don't want to give your email address, you can still get the 2011 edition at this link (link opens a .pdf).

Another useful and free resource by the LDS is Basic Physical Health with Limited Resources (link opens a .pdf). Maintaining good health before, during, and after a SHTF event is extremely important. This book gives information covering Disease Prevention, Cleanliness and Sanitation, Family Food Production, and Basic Family Medical Care, even when resources are limited because of poverty, war, or natural disasters.

2-21-2021 -  The Alpha Strategy: The Ultimate Plan for Financial Self-Defense is a famous, but now out-of-print, personal finance book from 1980. The Alpha Strategy presents a plan to protect your assets from both high inflation and depression, as well as high taxation and political manipulation, by owning/investing in real goods (useful stuff) rather than paper (money, stocks, bonds). The modern prepper strategy of stockpiling food, water, tools, supplies and other stuff is a form of the Alpha Strategy. 

The above link opens a .pdf on the Internet Archive. It may be a bit slow, so be patient.

Parler Is Back Online

2-18-2021 - The social media platform Parler went live again earlier this week after being knocked offline by the combined efforts of Amazon, Apple, and Google in early January. Parler has issued a statement that they are now using "sustainable, independent technology," and are no longer reliant on Amazon servers. 

CNN had previously reported that Parler was using a Russian cloud services provider to get back online, but this report has proved false. Instead, Parlar is using SkySilk, a California-based cloud services provider. 

Those individuals who previously had Parler accounts before they were knocked offline, should be able to log-in with their old passwords. However, all old posts, called Parleys on Parler, have been lost. 

Apple and Google are still refusing to allow the Parler app in their app stores. 

Find the Dystopian Survival Parler account at  https://parler.com/profile/DystopianSurv/

Live Not By Lies...

Folks, 

I want to make you aware of a new book (came out September 29) that tackles an incredible important subject. The book is Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents, by Rod Dreher.  From the Amazon description page:  

The New York Times bestselling author of The Benedict Option draws on the wisdom of Christian survivors of Soviet persecution to warn American Christians of approaching dangers.

For years, émigrés from the former Soviet bloc have been telling Rod Dreher they see telltale signs of "soft" totalitarianism cropping up in America--something more Brave New World than Nineteen Eighty-Four. Identity politics are beginning to encroach on every aspect of life. Civil liberties are increasingly seen as a threat to "safety". Progressives marginalize conservative, traditional Christians, and other dissenters. Technology and consumerism hasten the possibility of a corporate surveillance state. And the pandemic, having put millions out of work, leaves our country especially vulnerable to demagogic manipulation.

In Live Not By Lies, Dreher amplifies the alarm sounded by the brave men and women who fought totalitarianism. He explains how the totalitarianism facing us today is based less on overt violence and more on psychological manipulation. He tells the stories of modern-day dissidents--clergy, laity, martyrs, and confessors from the Soviet Union and the captive nations of Europe--who offer practical advice for how to identify and resist totalitarianism in our time. Following the model offered by a prophetic World War II-era pastor who prepared believers in his Eastern European to endure the coming of communism, Live Not By Lies teaches American Christians a method for resistance:
    SEE: Acknowledge the reality of the situation.
    JUDGE: Assess reality in the light of what we as Christians know to be true.
    ACT: Take action to protect truth.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn famously said that one of the biggest mistakes people make is assuming totalitarianism can't happen in their country. Many American Christians are making that mistake today, sleepwalking through the erosion of our freedoms. Live Not By Lies will wake them and equip them for the long resistance.

Health and Fitness Goals? Tips for Success!

By Timothy Gamble 

If improving your health and fitness was your New Year's resolution, you may already have stumbled. Many of us have. But that's okay, you can always restart your efforts. Here are some tips to make your new efforts more successful.

1) Get Medical Check-Ups!  Highly important, and not just for the usual legal yada-yada of "consult your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise program." Early diagnose of any medical problems you may have is extremely important to your ability to successfully and quickly deal with those problems, and may save you HUGE amounts of money (and suffering) in the long run. This is a lesson I had to learn the hard way. Please don't make my mistake.

Regular vision exams are important not just for your eyes, but they may detect type 2 diabetes long before other symptoms show up. Regular dental exams and cleaning are important not just for your teeth, but because there are some surprising and direct links between the health of your teeth and your heart. 

2) Find external motivation. Don't try to improve your health and fitness for yourself. Its easy to make-up and accept excuses when its only about us. Make your motivation external instead - for your wife, your husband, your kids, your grandkids, or whoever. 

Instead of quitting smoking so you can live longer, make it "I'm quitting smoking so I can live long enough to see my grandkids graduate college."  Instead of getting fit so you'll feel better and have more energy, make it "I'm getting fit so I can better protect my wife and kids.

3) Start small, and take small steps. The easiest way to fail at any diet or fitness program is to try to do too much, too soon. A little pain from sore muscles is probably a good thing, but too much will discourage you and give you an excuse to quit. Its okay to start small and slowly work your way to your goals. Small steps daily will quickly add up to success. 

4) Its good to have an exercise or diet partner, but only if they are as committed to it as you. Having a buddy to diet or exercise with is a great idea, but don't let their lack of commitment stop you. If they call with some excuse as to why they can't jog or work out with you today, DO IT WITHOUT THEM. Don't let their excuse become your excuse. 

5) Be aware of servings sizes and "hidden" calories and sugar. Even a healthy, low calorie salad can quickly become a high-calorie nightmare as you add all the extras - croutons, cheese, sunflower seeds, bacon bits - and top it with a sugar-loaded salad dressing. Besides, if you are just dumping the salad dressing on top instead of measuring out a single serving, you're probably using 2 or 3 servings, so multiple its calorie and sugar content by 2 or 3 to find out how much you're actually adding. With salads, stick to veggies only, and a small amount of zero-sugar olive oil-based salad dressing. Read the labels! Even with their small serving sizes, many salad dressings are loaded with sugar and calories. 

Read the labels for ketchup and other condiments. They often have a surprising amount of sugar, and official serving sizes are rather small, so chances are your using more than a single serving each time. That means, just like with salad dressings, you need to multiple to find how much calories and sugar you're actually consuming. A single serving of Heinz Ketchup has only 20 calories, but 4 grams of sugar. So, if  you're actually consuming 3 servings (easy to do if you like ketchup), the calorie count is 60 with 12 grams of sugar (basically, half a candy bar). 

Nuts are my weakness - I love them! And they do make a healthy snack in moderation - lots of healthy fats, fiber, minerals, and other nutrients. But they are also high in calories. The key is moderation - sticking to a single serving of about 1/4 to 1/3 cup shelled. If you love nuts like I do, its easy to eat a lot more than that, and those calories quickly add up.

6) Be careful of foods labeled "healthy." Words like healthy, lean, low-fat, natural and so forth sound great, but have no real meaning. Most often, they are little more than marketing terms designed by mega-corporations to get you to buy their product. Read the labels. You'll be surprised to find that most "healthy" frozen dinners have 2 to 3 times more sugar than the average candy bar, making the candy bar the actual healthier choice (chocolate does have a lot of antioxidants). But seriously, make your food choices based on what is actually in the food, not what marketing terms they put on the packaging.

Health and fitness is extremely important. Don't give up.

Censorship

 Folks,

Just before the election (about 7 days out), Twitter mysteriously removed almost 1,000 of my followers literally overnight.

In the past four days, I have lost another 1,000+ followers in the latest purge by Twitter.

I'm down over 2,000 followers on Twitter from mid-October.

Parler, a Free Speech alternative to Twitter, is (was) my "back up plan" in case something ever happened to my Twitter account. Parler has now gone dark after Amazon, Google, and Apple combined to force them off the Internet. Parler is now gone and I have lost 100% of my followers there.

Twitter and other social media have been the primary means of promoting my websites and writings, which is how I make my living. 

Facebook and Instagram have also joined in the censorship movement, and have become very hostile to conservative voices. 

Although I do have Facebook and Instagram accounts, I am fairly inactive on both and do very little marketing of my websites and articles through them. 

This anti-Free Speech wave of political correctness and censorship is directly impacting my ability to market my websites and writings, and thus is destroying my ability to earn a living. 

I am currently rethinking my business model. Expect changes in the near future. Please bookmark this website or subscribe by email (bottom of right-side column) to stay in touch with me. 

I am also on the free speech platform Gab. Follow me there at https://gab.com/TimGamble/
