Our Earth is destined to endure natural disasters over the next few years. The fact is, there will not be many places which are totally unaffected. This means that the food storage and emergency medical supplies are likely to run out at some point in time, and it is not wise to think you can rely on humanitarian organizations in the long-term future. The countries that can afford to help affected areas now will soon have their own serious issues to deal with, so no one can expect support from them in future…

The best mind attitude is to think you should prepare in advance and the best option is to choose to do so willingly, ahead of the time, by arranging ourselves into eco-villages and intentional communities. Why wait for disasters which eventually come? You could do so right now in a manner which you can plan for, or you might have the decision suddenly taken away from you through a natural disaster or weather event and will have to go along that way without having the buffer or the dignity of being prepared for it. Things are changing very quickly and the economic situation is already becoming unbearable. Governments are not going to be able to make enough of a difference in times of disaster, as they have not prepared enough and because the corruption in the world will ensure that the necessities will not reach the ones who really need them. Also, even if the governments were somewhat prepared (which they are not), disasters may result in a complete breakdown of infrastructure where hospitals, bridges, roads, railway lines could be either washed away by floods or destroyed by volcanic eruptions, bringing the communication system to a standstill. In such situations medicines and others relief supplies may not reach the affected communities in time, resulting in a high numbers of casualties. It is obvious how vulnerable people who live in cities are. If something happens to disrupt the delivery of fresh water, for example, human beings have no option but to become refugees immediately in the search for water, or they will die after 3 days.

Wouldn’t it be better to form rural intentional communities in advance? In doing so, you would be safe from most kinds of disasters and you would be self-sufficient. Especially, you would be moving toward the direction of living the way nature intended, thereby lessening the necessity of the earth to clean itself as violently as it would have. In other words, moving into intentional rural communities could prevent natural disasters in advance if enough people would wake up to this fact. For these reasons, they will have to take responsibility for their own survival, and the best chance of survival is to form an intentional community where work and resources are shared, wherever it is possible. It would be best to do this now…as soon as possible so that more people can become self-sufficient soon.

Eco-villages are the best alternative not only for short-term survival, but to really live properly as human beings in a nature-friendly manner….TO SURIVE AND TO THRIVE – THIS IS THE ONLY WAY FORWARD! I think It is difficult for people to move themselves unless a disaster is right on top of them already… The truth is, you are already in a disaster, in terms of your social problems, your individual mental health due to the stress of living in the modern world and in terms of your physical health, you suffer from allergies and illnesses as our bodies react to the poisonous environment you have created. There is so little love, peace or harmony in the way you are living. Despite living in cramped condition in cities…it is cities that have the largest concentration of alienated, lonely people. I am concerned because so many African people are already vulnerable and most don’t even have the financial resources to prepare for even a simple emergency pack…never mind to pay for land for and ecovillage… It is an unfortunate problem that in an emergency situation, in the short-term, the poorest people are the hardest hit because their economic resources affect preparedness, reaction and their ability to recover quickly. Poor people are less likely to find the resources to evacuate or make shelters or they might not leave in time, because they have no place to go. Wealthy people might be able to stay in hotels and pay for transport to unaffected areas. They also might be better educated and have access to more powerful social contacts. Although you might think that everybody suffers the same in times of disaster, at first the social inequalities which are already present in a society are exposed and enhanced. However, if the disaster is extended for a period of time, eventually you will come down to the basics…That is because repeated disasters and continuing floods and droughts will eventually cause money to become worthless, and when that happens it comes down to the basics… people need food, water and all the other treasures, which natures was providing for free in the first place. Since natural disasters like floods and droughts are going to occur continuously over the next few years, the way to survive will be having all people from all different backgrounds finding the ways to cooperate with one another for survival, by working with the land together. If you are not evacuated, just start your eco-community where you are, or join others nearby who have formed this type of community.
