I knew this would be a difficult one. Thinking about the collapse of industrial civilization and the human die-off and what we will take with us feels like a big forbidden subject - but it's more a question of when than if. Baker mulls it over and has a vague plan about what prospective survivors could do - move out to the country and round up a posse of like-mindeds who are getting ready and learning skills for subsistence farming, artisanry and hours of group processing every day (she seems to think people will have time and patience for this kind of thing) The book is full of journaling excercises. We all have our blind spots when it comes to contemplating this topic. Do I want to be one of the ones watching everyone else die? Not so much. But at least I know I'm not one of the only freaks thinking about it.
