Study. Famine. Now.

Knowledge is a shield and sword. If you study now and heed the old books, you will sail right through this, and emerge from the other side to tell the story. For those who refuse to study, well, good luck. Many people will not survive the next handful of years.

This short video reveals many patterns but this is just a tiny glimpse of what is to be learned. For instance, there was plenty of food and exports continued while cannibalism raged. As with Holodomor, Mao’s Great Famine, and others.

This mostly manmade famine was used both as genocide and property grab. People were forced to trade all just to fill their bellies. You’ll own nothing and be happy just to eat. Absentee landowners who did not even live in Ireland acquired property and wealth.

Irish were not innocent. Many who still had potatoes and other stuffs that could make moonshine continued their moonshining while other Irish starved to death a short distance away. (Not mentioned in this video but you can find it in some old books. Irish were famous for not sticking together).

HOP — the Human Osmotic Pressure —was intense, spreading Irish to the global winds. This was 170 years ago.

The population of Ireland has yet to recover, and at this rate may face yet another famine building on the global horizon.

If you study famine now — and there is no time to waste, cancel vacation — you will have a vital roadmap to getting through this. Most famines are amazingly survivable for those who saw it coming and ducked.

There is great value in finding experienced preppers and listening closely. There is also a great value that few talk about — just study history for the patterns.

Be not Afraid — those who study and prepare will talk about this for the rest of their lives.

I’m ready. But readiness requires constant observation and readjustment. Readiness is not a line in the sand. More like a dance that you “learn as you go…sometimes you lead…”. I’m ready for the next steps and then will keep readjusting, listening to others, and readjusting some more.

  1. I would really appreciate a reading list or links to study and prepare also.

  2. Please keep us updated on this topic. I stocked up on canned goods and pounds of rice, today. The Great Depression lasted years and I certainly don’t have years worth of food but I can fish. None of us know how bad it will get. You have a lot more information than I will ever get from the less than informative, soap opera, news media.

    This is sticking in my head, my grandmother, Boots, telling me that her daddy gigged frogs and hunted rabbits, just to survive.

    At the moment, I’m very concerned that they, the federal government, will be coming for our weapons. This last terrible incident will push people over the edge. The left is pushing Gun Control. Let the brainwashing begin.

  3. Thank you, Michael for sobering news. Truly, Facts sure do dictate that the global food economy is reaching an inflection point. A massive NEGATIVE inflection. Sri Lanka in flames–GOV there ordering “shoot on sight” for hungry families trying to get food one way or another. Iran as well. Who knows where else which the MSM refuses to cover?

    For those who study this issue–preparation is the key. Those who are off playing video or other mind games, navigating the manifold pleasures of a Disney World fake existence–they are utterly hopeless. The price of admission to an upcoming reality is what we rural folks say down South: “Root hog or die!”

    It will not be pretty. For those of us believing in “The Way,” our Bible shows the way forward.

    Even The Bard advises us:

    “Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
    Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
    But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
    Of each new-hatch’d, unfledg’d comrade.”
    ~ The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark

  4. A reading list might be helpful.
