New show on the history channel. Interesting so far. History Channel profiles Nazareth man's self-sufficient life in 'Apocalypse PA' - Morning Call "Our country was based on independence, not dependence. We're too dependent on the infrastructure around us. I'm not suggesting in any shape of form not to have them, but it was only one or two generations before us that, hell, they didn't even have power. My whole point is, let's back up a minute, let's prosper from the infrastructure but not rely on it." Belcastro says it makes sense to become totally self sufficient, so that if there were an economic collapse, power outage, pandemic, environmental epidemic, "or some other serious calamity, you will be able to survive and thrive."
