We may live in a post-truth era, but nature does not 

In the 1870s, spectacular rains began to fall on the Western Plains, turning a dry region then named “the Great American Desert” to gorgeous green. Thousands of young homesteaders rushed west to raise crops and families, convinced by a humdinger alternative fact: “Rain Follows the Plow.” The more people moved to the Plains, the widely reported theory went, the more it would rain.

dark short story 

Throughout the century before the first bomb hit the ‘homeland’, humans were transformed into machine-like consumer-workers. Clandestine enculturation from the right in the name of ‘the free market’, and from the left in the name of ‘the common good’, methodologically eradicated useful innate instincts and compassionate impulses. Remaining organic surroundings were transformed into a human-made material savannah. Networks of asphalt streets, slapdash domiciles and shopping centers selling slave-made shipped synthetic goods spanned sea to sea.

Vanishing nature, catastrophic to almost all species, was rationalized by macho media personalities assigned the capitalist duty of clearing the collective conscience. Humans’ God-given duty to dominate it. Civilization’s destiny to simply use it for consumption & profit. Ever increasing symptoms of knocking the natural world out of whack – disappearing glaciers, drowning islands, Mega- hurricanes, flooding, drought, etc., were described as ‘usual weather patterns’ where pragmatically possible, or if need be, re-assigned to the fault of the others. God’s retribution on a society that tolerates birth control. Or, staged by Islamo-fascist secret cells still lingering from WWIII.

As forests and fields malformed into lawns and concrete, all humans, lastly rural humans living off the land, became cogs, mostly low-income worker cogs, propelling forward the capitalist culture wheel. In the few remaining walled-off narrow bluffs reserved for the ever-shrinking elite, practicing skills needed to survive in and live with nature became a guided hobby.

Mainstream Amerika’s mind instilled the account of the Donner expedition tragedy, the only significant event of survival deemed ‘common knowledge’, thus mandatory teaching to every student, at least in the ‘good’ skools. During this wartime of greatest hardship, Amerikans turned to this only-known survival lesson. Donner expedition on a grand scale.

How to Build With Grid Beam 

Grid beam is a modular, reusable building system that is fast, easy, affordable and virtually goof-proof. Ordinary people, with few skills and even fewer tools (all you need is a wrench!) can tackle projects ranging from furniture and shop benches to more ambitious projects like wind turbines, truck racks, small buildings–even electric vehicles.

Grid beam’s modular pieces and bolt-together construction make the system fast and straightforward to work with. It has all the advantages of an industrial building system: standard, modular sizes; uniform materials; and interchangeable parts. Projects knock flat and are easy to transport. Since the pieces can be used over and over again, grid beam is easy both on your wallet and on the environment — the authors have been using some of their components for over 30 years.
