1) Who is Tim Gamble?  The owner & editor of this website (as well as TimGamble.com which is my news & politics website), I am a writer, journalist, and consultant with 15+ years experience in the prepper and survivalist community. I have professional experience writing Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Policies for businesses and museums. I have Bachelor Degrees in History and Accounting (with a minor in Economics) from Belmont Abbey College. I have done post-graduate studies with Duke University. I have held appointed positions in both local government (Environmental Advisory Board) and State government (Transportation Planning).

2) What is Dystopian Survival? Dystopian Survival is my term for a new type of survivalism based on the realities of the changing modern world marked by rapid technological change, the centralization of  economic and political authority into a small elite class, the loss of privacy and freedoms, and the decline of traditional Judeo-Christian and American values. I believe we are witnessing the slow death of the American Republic and Western Civilization as we have known it. Surviving these changes requires knowledge, skills, and attitudes that go well beyond the typical wilderness survival, homesteading, and stockpiling advice currently found in the prepper and survivalist community.

3) What are your objectives for Dystopian Survival?   My objective for this website is to provide information and opinion on a variety of topics typically relating to self-reliance, personal finance, emergency preparedness, urban and suburban survival, wilderness survival, homesteading, gardening, and bushcraft (outdoor skills). It also may contain religious content (from a traditional Christian perspective), political & economic content (from a limited government and pro-Capitalism perspective), and educational materials.       

4) I've heard or read that you claim to be a nationalist. Doesn't that mean you are a white supremacist or a neo-nazi?  No. Absolutely not. You are thinking of White Nationalism or National Socialism. I'm neither of those things. By nationalist, I simply mean that I believe in national sovereignty, a strong military, and secure borders. I believe in patriotism - love of my country and putting the needs of my fellow countrymen first (America First). I hope citizens of other countries feel the same way about their country.

5) What are your views on racism?  I simply don't believe in racism. As a Bible-believing Christian, I believe that there is only one race, the human race, since all humans are descended from Adam and Eve, and later Noah and his wife. Differences in skin tone, coarseness of hair, and other physical characteristics are merely inherited family traits among more closely related people groups. Not only is this the Biblical view, it is also the scientific view suported by modern genetics. See the video Only One Race: The Biblical Answer to Racism on the TBN website. You may have to register to watch, but it is free.

6) I've heard you mention agrarianism a couple of times. What is agrarianism?  Agrarianism is an economic and social philosophy which places primary importance on agriculture and related fields, and in rural living, as opposed to industrialized, urban living. I believe the agrarian lifestyle is much more conducive to living God's way rather than worldly ways. I also believe agrarianism is a healthier lifestyle, both physically and emotionally.
