Taking a look at your resume, you actually have no choice but to agree with logwed.
If it were not for the modern society you would be in pretty bad shape....I suggest you keep your job and go to work everyday!!!
Not a bad thing, even in today's society you trade your skills [for what ever you do at work] for other things err money.
Only problem is the end-game of capitalism is not sustainable. Not enough checks and balances in place to stop greed from turning every last tree into furniture.
I'm sure logwed has done his homework concerning the technology behind genetically engineered food and the Monsanto Corporation. I won't claim to be smart, but I did a couple of research papers on genetically engineered food....I found it interesting to say the least. Let's see where technology will take us....
And that's why I take advantage of the fact that I have a job in today's modern society that pays money for me to buy what I need, so that I have time to learn what I "don't need" in a manner of speaking. I don't need to know how to shoot a Bow-and-Arrow or make my own because modern society doesn't require me to have that particular skill. But I learned how to do both because I have the time to learn and I'm pretty damn competent when it comes to shooting a compound bow or having to build a quick and simple bow and arrow set. Even though I'm terrible at gardening, I have the time to learn and improve, and this year, I tried a new setup using clear plastic totes as potters and I'm getting phenomenal results! I have friends who do metal work and woodwork and always offer to teach me more of their tips/tricks so I can improve. That is what I love about today's modern society - because I do not HAVE to focus on myself and my abilities for food/shelter/clothing, etc beyond going to work and bringing home a paycheck large enough to pay for these things, I have more time to focus on those things that would be beneficial to my wellbeing were I to find myself in a post-apocalyptic future.
