Next Issue Of The Wild Bunch: Technology That's Still Useful During A Collapse

•, By Brandon Smith

The Wild Bunch is a place to explore subjects and solutions to centralized tyranny which are rarely if ever covered by the rest of the alternative media. Meaning, we talk about direct action measures along with more passive strategies.

There are a lot of commentators out there in the survival sphere that tend to focus on the idea of a future world without technology, or a world in which maintaining technology and using it is untenable.  This often comes from overestimating the effects of a grid down scenario, EMP or cyberattack.  The reality is that in ALL of these situations most technology will still be in working order.  Even an EMP will not affect your smaller tech items unless you are directly within a small central blast radius.  And, even if you are, such items can be protected by Faraday bags or cages.

Bottom line?  You're going to have technology available during the worst-case collapse events.  Knowing how to live without such items is great, but going back to the caveman days is probably the worst plan imaginable.  Most technology will not be all that useful during a crisis but some items will be essential to making your life easier and to rebuilding civilization after the dust settles.  In the next issue of the Wild Bunch Dispatch, I'll be discussing my top tech items that every prepper should have on hand just in case our system fails.
