Fifty Tools and Technologies to Rebuild Civilization
By: Tom Chatham – Author of The Crux Event
The universe has no shortage of ways to hamper mans’ progress. Catastrophic disasters have happened on Earth before and they are likely to happen again in the future. This does not mean it is useless to try to improve the world we live in, it just means we need to be aware of the things we take for granted. There may come a day when we cannot just run to the store and pick them up. In a catastrophic scenario what would we need to rebuild our world and carry on? The following is a list of possible items that would allow us to restart our culture from scratch and move on again.
Sheep Shears and Scissors
Treadle Sewing Machine
Manual Grain Mill
Butter Churn and Cream Separator
Wood Cook Stove
Manual Water Pump
Vacuum Tube Radio Technology
Tempered Glass Production
Castor Oil Lubricants Production
This list is subjective but it encompasses most of the technologies that we consider necessary to provide a good quality of life. It may not be possible for every person to learn all of the intricacies of all these technologies but the quest to learn as much about these things as you can is rewarding in and of itself. We must always work to better ourselves and the acquisition of knowledge is one of the ways to do this.
