Emergency potable water supplies - an update

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 17 hours ago
Some years ago, I wrote about the importance of water storage and purification as part of one's emergency preparations. It's a very important, but often neglected topic. All I had to say in that article remains valid. Over the years, I've noticed that storing water long-term in most plastic containers has an added problem. The water takes on a sort of "plastic taste" that I find unpleasant. It's not dangerous to one's health (provided one uses containers made of food-safe plastic), but it's strong enough to taint the taste of food, and can discourage drinking enough to stay pr... more »

Freedom of Choice is What Sets Capitalism Apart — Not Competition

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
[image: choice.JPG] I am not so sure that this is true. The existence of money allows the choice to preserve in time the opportunity to enter an exchange. This process then allows the possibility of lending money in exchange for interest. The advent of fiat banking then allows all this to fund a capitalistic expansion. Capitalism empowers greater levels of choice, but this was already built in to the system. No economy can function without choice.
