    I think that every generation has worried that we are doomed (I am certain they felt this way back in the 50s with the constant threat of war). It will happen someday, all things end, but I am betting, and praying, it won't be for a very longtime.
    However I am all for homesteading, working on it myself. I think our society has gotten to removed from nature. I also feel a lot of our problems could be solved by being less materialistic. I also think it would go a long way to helping the environment if more people grew their own food and bought less cheap factory grown food.

    We're not homesteading in the strictest since as some of our family members do have jobs, however we are attempting to become as self-sufficient as possible as we are definitely concerned about a potential economic collapse. It's one of the reasons we sold our home in Hawaii (which would be a terrible place to be if the economy collapsed) and bought our farm in NW Montana.
