James Wesley Rawles

When you’re sick, you need a doctor. When you’re REALLY sick, you need a specialist. After what I posted on Friday, it should be clear to you that we’re REALLY sick, and that we REALLY need a specialist. And, I think that James Wesley Rawles might be a specialist that you’re looking for.

James is a veteran of Army Intelligence with experience in field operations, which means that he wasn’t just commanding a desk and shuffling papers (although, he probably did THAT, too). And, he’s not a hysterical alarmist. He’s a very calm, cool and collected guy who knows exactly what he’s talking about. Even better, he’s a devout Christian who lives out his faith publicly and without shame. This is someone that you want as your neighbor when it all falls apart. But, that still doesn’t give you the picture of the man.

That’s why I recommend that you do two things. Read his biography, here:


Read carefully. Somewhere in there is a link that will give you the true measure of this guy. (Hint: it’s a bucket list written by his first wife, as she was dying.)

Then, there’s this:

James Wesley Rawles: Homesteading, Relocation & Resilience


Every time that I hear JWR interviewed, I’m impressed by what a solid guy he is.

This interview also offers me an opportunity to introduce the guy who’s doing the interviewing:

Chris Martensonhttp://www.peakprosperity.com/

The insight that Chris offers on his website is… well, it was mind-blowing to me when I first ran across his work a couple years ago. And, like all mind-blowing revelations, it took time to sink in – as I said yesterday, it took two years.

And that “Ah HA! I get it!” moment of Epiphany?

THAT happened when I saw this video:


There’s No Tomorrow (peak oil, energy, growth & the future)

We are in SO much trouble!

Are you ready for this?


If you find a flaw in my reasoning, or wish to offer a different explanation, leave a comment. Your input is truly welcome.
