With the massive rise of modern technologies, people have become more competent in accomplishing things that humans, alone, might not do. For example, transportation has become extremely convenient with the modern innovation of trains, cars, boats, and planes, and the rules of survival without these conveyances are out of the question. Beyond transportation, high-tech machinery and guns permit people to slaughter animals that couldn’t have been possible with their bare hands. If we talk in intellectual terms, technology has also taken mankind beyond its natural capacity and resulted in many productive conclusions.
Many survival guidebooks state that technology has sometimes been humankind’s worst enemy. Although the internet intends to unite interpersonal relationships, it has, paradoxically, made humans more inaccessible than ever. With the technology innovation, the significantly wealthy people versus those who are merely “surviving” paved a wide gap in living standards and divided societies into classes. In the UK alone, we see many people living a luxurious life and those who are just about managing their work and are not equipped with modern high-tech systems to ease their life. According to the non-fiction books about survival, certain technological innovations have ultimately overcomplicated the things they intended to streamline and have put less privileged people in a relentless race to avail all the glories of modern technology through any means.
Among the best survival non-fiction books that shed light upon these pivotal topics is “The inevitable Calamity: Planning for the Greater Collapse” by author Philip Webb. This book aims to inform the readers about the foreseen imminent events in the later years, then invite them to construct a contingency plan that’ll eventually put them on the front foot in case the entire system of society collapses. This’ll prepare them mentally and physically for the inevitable catastrophes and provide a means of support for themselves and those they care about in times of conflict; this survival guidebook discusses some of the fundamental difficulties that torment our lives. From financial breakdown and inflations to food, drinkable water, safety, and transportation, but beyond all, our mental health because a vision without a proper plan is merely a dream.
