. We've been educated to rely on the least reliable in all major aspects of life. One of those areas is on constant display everyday, but is more noticeable when there is massive loss of life and/or property damage. Many events we call disasters are not the result of sudden events or unanticipatible conditions. No matter what, when they finally reach crisis level, we always look for the Calvary to save us.
On a daily basis it's emergency services and charities.
On an event by event basis, it includes military and other government agencies.
We've seen the response of emergency services of all types on all levels when hundreds and thousands of people need help at the same time.
Due to their limited resources, emergency crews are unable to get to everyone at the same time.
This leaves those expecting help to be subject to the discretion of others as to who needs help first.
Is it really wise to expect the Calvary to save us on a daily basis, and especially during larger events?
Rather than relying on 911 as our only option, we, as individuals and smaller collectives, must put more time and other resources into forming our own Preventive Services Calvary.
What kind of education exists that teaches us to be reactive rather than proactive?
What kind of freedom is there that does not include self-reliance (self-determination).
Why are we okay with liberty that includes vulnerabilities?
Do we really not understand how easily and quickly food, water, electricity, gas and other basic supplies could become interrupted for days or weeks, no matter how much money we have?
Calvaries are risky and costly.
"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)
“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”
