JUST A NOTE: Ebooks are convenient to quickly access and read via computer in this modern electronic era we so often take for granted… but be sure to have hardcopies of any books that you believe may be useful during or after a SHTF or TEOTWAWKI scenario… !!!

Essence of Permaculture (FREE PDF) by David Holmgren… is a free summary of permaculture concepts and principles… taken from Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability, which shows relevant correlations between every aspect of how we can reorganise our lives, communities, and landscapes to creatively adapt to the ecological realities which shape our human destiny. I am impressed with how deep Holmgren goes into the philosophy behind permaculture… not focusing on techniques per se… but instead discussing having the wisdom to see our world for what it really and truly is, and not for what artificialities can be wrung from it.
The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America: A Chronological Paper Trail (FREE PDF) by Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt… will change forever the way you look at your child’s education… this free version is the unabridged original version. The "little edition" of the "big book" is a new, smaller and lighter version… this Revised and Abridged Edition has had the afterword, glossary, resources, appendices and index removed; and an entirely new "Update" section added, which covers the final, but long-planned, institutionalization of three activities:  the use of unconstitutional tax-supported (public/private partnership) charter schools run by unelected boards. These schools use non-graded Skinnerian computer instruction to train for the planned economy (school to work);  global values-changing education, including International Baccalaureate programs and  restructuring of our nation’s representative governmental structure, using regionalism (socialism) with its unelected councils (soviets), and communitarianism.
