First I agree that it would be good to quote the song and “Small up and simple down”, but the majority aren’t going to do it. Ever.

Small shareholdings and self sustaining farms would be a wonderful thing, but for most its beyond our reach, monetarily to begin with.
One still has bills and expenses that must be paid, to include the tax men.

My focus on oil post-SHTF is simple, short term it may be, but people have to eat, goods need to get places. And unless we are willing to sacrifice lives on a grand scale, to include those that just need medications, we have to find an answer.
And for now that is getting the trucks rolling.
