I often write about the self-sufficient lifestyles of our ancestors, as to how they raised their own meats, vegetables, got heat from their own wood, water from their own wells and springs, etc. It made them who they were and made us who we are.
Today, this way of doing things is sometimes called “organic” or “alternate.” I personally don’t especially care for the term “alternate,” as it often applies to lifestyles and ways of doing things that I consider weird and/or immoral. Organic farming was simply just the way our ancestors farmed before chemical fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, and genetic engineering, backed by the globalists’ corporations that came into the picture.
These globalist corporations now control the major news media on both the right and the left, so they achieve their desired outcome on all matters. One of their ploys is to label such things as solar and wind and other sources, such as hydrogen fuel cell technology, as “alternate energy.” To some, this tends to give the impression that if you support this type of energy that you are un-American or a left winger.
In reality, there is no such thing as alternative energy; these are only the energy sources that the big corporations and the globalists don’t control. I assure all of you that if our Southern ancestors had had access to solar panels and storage batteries, they would have made full use of them in their homesteads, just as they did other inventions.
Some actually did dam up smaller streams and creeks and generated electricity for their farms before the big river dams built by the power companies; one was on Chipco Creek here in Coosa County.
The demise of our people has and will come from their reliance on others, rather than themselves. Our people initially resisted reliance on others; now most embrace it. By their reliance on others, they make a mockery on the things that our ancestors stood and fought for!
What happened to the inventors and scientists that didn’t conform to the globalist agenda? Mr. Diesel, the one who invented the diesel engine, invented it to run off of renewable vegetable oil, which could be supplied by local farmers. This didn’t sit too well with those who owned the big petroleum companies, who sought to control the vehicle energy supply. Mr. Diesel came up missing from a boat while crossing the English Channel. The big oil companies reconfigured his engine to run off of petroleum diesel, which they supplied and controlled the price of.
Nicoli Tesla, the world’s greatest inventor and scientist – some say that he reverse-engineered the technology from ancient artifacts from the vaults of the Vatican, which his father had worked security over. He was the inventor of alternating current, among many other things, including different cheap energy sources.
Others stole and/or repressed his inventions, and the government raided his home and stole his records. He apparently never got over it. He ended up dying as a recluse who spent his last days feeding and talking to pigeons.
I personally have replaced most of my equipment such as weed eaters, hedge trimmers, chainsaws, etc. with lithium battery powered models, which work better than gas powered engines, e.g. no carburetors fouling out, pull cords breaking, etc. I can also charge their batteries with my solar panels.
I also have a modified off-road electric golf cart type vehicle that I can charge with my solar panels. It has a top speed of about 30 MPH and a range of about 20 miles on a charge; not something that a single man could pick up chicks with, but if the gasoline supply got cut off, I could still go places, something I find comfort in knowing.
I would like to have an electric car or truck, but you can buy a small farm for what they charge for one of these, which would kind of defeat some of the purpose of the free solar charging. I wouldn’t need the air conditioning, power windows, heated seats, automatic transmission, GPS, or any of those things that drive their price up. Unfortunately, no vehicle companies make any basic electric models.
I wish someone local could build me one. Electric vehicles are the future. Some laugh at this, but I still have lights when the power goes out from my solar panels and battery banks. Some do this from generators, but generators use gas, and the gasoline supply can be cut off anytime that those in charge decide that this is best to implement their agenda.
Anything one does that makes themselves more self sufficient and less dependent on others, especially the globalist corporations, for their food, energy, medicine, health, etc., is a plus, unless you are one of those who worship them and what you think they can offer you. If so, then you probably got upset and never finished this column.
Note: Unfortunately most solar panels, like everything else, is now made in China.
Until next time, Dixie forever!
