John Robb over at Global Guerrillas has been hitting it out of the park lately with regards to the philosophy behind resiliency. I highly recommend to everyone to read his blog and resiliency page frequently.
In today’s blog post he discusses the fact that the global system has trust issues. Without re-doing his excellent post, let me say that local community is the key to resiliency because the economic and security decisions are made within a framework of moral and reputational interaction.
Work on those local connections every chance you get, you never know when you will need them!
