The Homestead Ranger is an information hub for those who are concerned about the collapse of global society and more importantly, learning exactly what steps to take to become self-reliant, and achieve the off-grid survival competency and resource base to survive the coming change, known as the New Dark Age. This global collapse is inevitable within 15 years due to a combination of acute and insurmountable global breaking points to include overpopulation, finite resource overconsumption, rising government corruption, agricultural catastrophe, and an unsustainable refugee crisis. These issues will soon come to a head as critical non-renewable resources become scarce, leading to dire shortages, and a disastrous worldwide chain reaction. Specifically, resources such as mined phosphorous, fertilizer, petrofuel, and some rare earth minerals will no longer satisfy the demand of over 8 billion humans attmepting to live luxurious modern lifestyles. No later than 2045, due to the aforementioned shortages, global food production will drop below 80% of the needs of the human race. This will be a tipping point where governments will no longer be able to control migrants or the demands of 1.5 billion starving humans. This instability will cause powerful government forces to implement price controls, cessation of global food trade, hording of resources, and martial law. This, in turn will cause the starving masses to resort to violence and thievery, as they deal with hunger and starvation-induced pandemic. This will further disrupt agricultural supplies, as farmers will no longer be able to depend on a stable economy, income flow, or even physical security on their farms. The way to ensure that you and your loved ones are fed and safe is to learn self-reliance, and start now to gather the necessary tools and resources to be self-suffiient, produce your own food, and provide basic physical security for yourself. We are all better off when more of us are self-suffient and self-reliant. The Homestead Ranger is a project to cover every preparedness topic in depth and is building an authoritative information hub to be a complete, one-source guide to survive and thrive during any long emergency. Topics covered include self-sufficent off-grid energy, agriculture, and homestead building techniques. Self-defense, hunting, and medical care with limited resources are areas of interest as well.
