Here are JWR‘s Recommendations of the Week for various media, tools, and gear of interest to SurvivalBlog readers. This week’s emphasis is on forest thinning.
Slum Dog Millionaire. JWR’s Comments: This movie is intense and has some crudity. But it shows just how cruel life is for India’s slum dwellers.
Land of Mine. JWR’s Comments: The events depicted, though fictionalized, are essentially true. Until this film was released, very few had heard about the use of impressed POWs for de-mining, following World War II.
Instructional Videos (Forest Thinning)
Wranglerstar: Forest Transformation You Wont Believe! JWR’s Comments: Clearing undergrowth and forest thinning is important for fire protection. It is also crucial for creating clear fields of fire, for retreat security.
Online Sermon Videos:
Alistair Begg: Times of Difficulty. JWR’s Comments: Pastor Begg is one of the few frequently-heard “radio preachers” worth listening to. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Begg has not sold out to to presenting only wishy-washy words of kindness. Instead, his doctrine is sound, he is unashamed of the Gospel of Christ, and he doesn’t hesitate to confront the sins of this world.
The First 40 Miles (Hiking and Backpacking for Newbies)
Kent’s “Hooligan Libertarian” Blog
The War on Guns (David Codrea) JWR’s Comments: Codrea is one of the most ignored and under-rated defenders of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. His blog is well worth reading.
