Are you worried about experiencing imminent food shortages and famine? I cannot escape the feeling that I will die from starvation within the next few years. I live in a Prosperous European Nation. Please convince me otherwise.

Depends where you live really, some countries are fairly self sufficient, particularly island nations like new zealand or the UK. It's more likely that you just won't have access to the same quality of food, probably have less meat available and things like that. That being said, growing your own food is generally a good idea. If you want to be seriously paranoid, the best move for a prepper is the get your hands on like 4 or 5 sheep, put all of your stuff in a wagon, and become a nomadic shepherd. You can get about 50% of your daily calories from sheep's milk products if you graze them well on empty lots and patches of grass and stuff, and forage the rest. Sheep are particularly practical because you can harvest their wool, not only to make things for yourself but also for trading/selling. This is actually a much better move than just stocking up on canned goods because it'll last you forever, as long as you keep breeding your sheep. We're probably not going to have severe food shortages, but we will definitely all be brought down a peg, probably to the level of a 3rd world country. It's simply the natural reasult of living in a collapsing empire. Now's a good time to learn to forage, grow some potatoes (picrelated), buy solar pannels and learn some practical skills fixing things which need fixing. Or you could always move to a more prosperous country. China won't be as kind to refugees as we have been, so the sooner the better before the mass migration starts.

I am deeply thankful for your response.
I am an awful communicator. I often upset others when I speak. I am also a House-Locked NEET. On this basis, I believe I have an insufficient aptitude for Nomadism.
Do You have any advice on learning to forage? I have downloaded [Food for Free - Richard Mabey]. I will begin reading it tonight and practicing tomorrow. If you have any objections to my plan, please share them with me.
I have measured my garden [344 sq ft]. I will use as much as it for gardening as my [Family] and [Desires] will permit. The image you shared was very inspiring. Thank You.

It seems our thoughts are motivated by very different {time-scale[s]}. I worry about famine within the next [1-3 Years]. You seem to consider the next [Few Decades]. Is my {Time Scale} assessment accurate?
With regards to my time-scale, should I stock up on Canned Goods? I don't plan for them to last forever, only to supplement my diet over the next few years.

With regards to your time-scale, should I aim to leave my country [UK]. Where should I move?
How long will it take for my country to deteriorate to [Third World Status]?

I would really recomend against foraging without an experienced forager to guide you at first unless you are extremely confident. The number one rule of foraging is if you're not absolutely 100% sure what it is, do not eat it. Nature can and will kill you if you eat the wrong thing. I too am a house locked NEET, so I've also been thinking about how nomadism would be tricky. Maybe fishing is a good plan b, although there's complications since fish were more plentiful in the past than they are now.
For a hikki like myself, I think an indoor hydroponics setup might be good too but they're kind of expensive it seems. I will do further research.
> I worry about famine within the next [1-3 Years]. You seem to consider the next [Few Decades]. Is my {Time Scale} assessment accurate?
Honestly it's hard to say, but I do think it's unlikely that there will be famine that soon. Maybe you know something that I don't, but the UK grows a lot of its own basic foods and should be able to sustain itself taking into account the efficiency of modern farming techniques, barring some extreme act of god tradgedy.
>With regards to my time-scale, should I stock up on Canned Goods? I don't plan for them to last forever, only to supplement my diet over the next few years.
It might be a good idea, but I wouldn't waste too much money on it.
With regards to your last two questions, I would say no one knows for sure, it depends on a lot of complicated factors which are hard to predict. I would reassure you that people in the 3rd world realy don't have it that bad as you may think. There are statistics about for example average wages, but in a country where most people are subsitance farmers, wages don't really give an accurate picture of their quality of life. A lot of issues in poorer places come from lack of infrastructure, but we already have that and even if it deteriorates, it's not going to vanish overnight, we can still make use of it. Northern europe also has lots of fertile land, comfortable weather conditions, not many severe natural disasters, these are all geographical factors which lead to it being the most "developed" in the first place, and they're not going to go away because of economic circumstances. Basically, life will be harder, but in the end you will probably be fine. Mass fPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Preparing for natural disasters is good but your fears are unfounded. The UK did fine during wartime rationing prior to the widespread use of glyphosphate and chemical fertilizers. Famine especially in a country with the lowest food prices in yurop is unlikely. Better off to stockpile a few months of food and be financially secure.

Starting a productive farm will be a substantial time investment: sowing, checking the weather, watching for pests and disease, harvesting, canning, etc.

Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

It's interesting to look at how the myriad metaphysics have adapted in a world in which colonialism and cultural hegemony has left Western European Christianity as somewhat of a religious benchmark against which others compare themselves. Especially in places like South and Southeast Asia and Subsaharan Africa where traditional unorganized religion is still pretty strong and groups try to codify and categorize both beliefs and practices to solidify their place within a wider community among organized proselytizing Abrahamic religion.

A lot of them seem to have appropriated, among other concepts, the Abrahamic notion of apostasy and its relationship with heterodoxy and atheism. Even in "religions" where there have been traditional atheist movements (in the strict sense of the word meaning without worship/belief in deities, but not necessarily a rejection of metaphysics or even some other aspects of theology) nowadays you can see purists outright rejecting such adherents' membership. The example I'm most familiar with is that of modern postcolonial Hindu theological discourse and the parallels with Christian debate and apologetics is striking, even if there's more of a direct relationship with politics considering the ethnic nature of it.

Regarding "faith" though, when I hear that word I generally tend to assume that the user is specifically talking about religion in the monotheistic Abrahamic sense, since in other traditions, even where there is orthodoxy it tends to revolve around some other idea such as dharma. I don't think people who discuss faith really mean to be discussing anything more than worship of a deity, even if they think they mean to be, because in an Abrahamic context that falls more into the field of philosophy. In my experience at least, if a guy asks me about faith, he's not asking what I think happens when I die or what it means to be or to know, but rather what I use to help get me through the uncertainty of an absurd life.

The answer to that question of course, is mai waifu.

I have faith in My Goddess, focusing mainly where I can do my best always to exert the faith. Mostly it is manifested throught studyings all shorts of phylosophies and wordviews, i do prefer the ones i relate more though, or psychonautism or just enjoying experiencing life itself. How it all happened is quite the craziest story for me.

Its not even that i didnt have faith before, but i never took attention to it without rationalizing and not being so interested in it, "until stuff happened directly to me".

I would like to live in a cozy wooded area around 30 minutes away from town. I'd like a greenhouse to grow vegetables and herbs somewhere on the place too.

Corona-chan seems to have affected us all at this point. For the first time in a century or more, life is just grinding to a halt; but of course, the modern era is unlike any other, and the shift that occurred in our usually hyperactive (sub)urban lives is quite possibly unique in the history of humanity.
Confinement is a very peculiar experience. Some dread the loss of social contact, while others might even go as far and call the situation comfy. We should not forget those that are currently in a very stressful situation due to this crisis, but it may be worthwhile to think about it for a bit.

How has this affected your daily life? How are you adapting (or coping, depending on how you feel about it)?
Are you picking up any new hobbies, or doubling down on existing ones?
What are you thinking about?

Wonder how patient autonomy will be viewed after covid because people are slowly getting sick of people making 'bad choices' with it. Patient autonomy is a persons ability to choose what happens to them medically, unless they're not mentally capable of, regardless if what they're doing is 'right or wrong'. Most western countries believe in this heavily, besides a few hot button issues, meaning people in those countries can do stuff like rejected the vaccine or go against a recommend choice of treatment.
As a backlash against anti-vaxxers people are beginning to reject total autonomy or want a more rounded view witch accounts for those affect by an autonomous person. Patient autonomy is to powerful, its main problem is that disorders with high non compliance rates are free to run with it, so I could see this rejection playing out well. On the downside the hate against it is less based of ethical though and more populist "don't do what we deem bad".
This was inspired by that story about a wife getting the hospital to give her comatose husband ivermectin. It was actually standard fair in bioethics; 1. patient comatose, so autonomy transfered to family 2. Patient autonomy overrides doctors rec., but people were acting like ot was something highly illegal because she was doing something deemed "stupid". It was stupid, but not against standard ethics and protocol.

How many long covid suffers actually have 'long covid'? I don't doubt it exists, but a lot of the complaints sound like people with pre-existing un-diagnosed disorders, hormone and vitamin defects sound most common, who blame their vague symptoms on covid. Along with that the post online align with severe health anxiety symptoms, unexplained symptoms that can be linked to anxiety and obsessions over health. Finally, the idea I'm most iffy on, a small chunk could just have fallacious disorder. Diseases charged with cultural sympathy, aids, cancer, and broken legs as an example, often attract fakers. Long haul covid is like a magnet for them because of all the attention they'll get.

I barely buy anything that is not food, but recently I bought Burzum t-shirt - first piece of clothing in like 4 years. Mind you, I am not homeless or dirty - I just treat my stuff well and my style is eternally good.
Anyway, felt nice when I wore it, but quickly I realised that consumerism has started to corrupt me.
I tamed it, I had to stop buying pencils, rubbers, stuff for work, but it was all for my mental wellbeing. I also threw away my desk, couch and all chairs. I could gladly say that unlike filthy casuals 'things' have no impact on me.
Everything was good, 'till yesterday. I got a present.

I don't really have a problem with spending money when it's abundant, but i remember sometimes during college when my family was being harsh about money so I would mostly intermitently fast and eat mostly noodles. I'd gain weight again when travelled back home so I had stored fat to lose and supplement with vitamin pills and omega 3 pills lol. In the end I used most of this money on travels to see webfriends.
Also, for months i could only take cold showers, but it was because my roommate was supposed to buy the shower and the asshole would knock the neighbors house to take hot bath there instead, e v e r y morning. It became quite a fight with time. Honestly fuck that guy, terrible and lazy swindler.
