Here’s a 2 hour and 15 minute movie entitled “Urban Danger”. The film describes what might happen in the event of an serious economic depression. I think it’s worth your time. It includes a lengthy description of a very intelligent senior citizen’s cabin in the woods. The description is fascinating, even charming to see this elderly man and his wife living in a small but very efficient home.
There are other more expensive cabins, and even a small a farm.
One of the movie’s fundamental themes is that in a worst case scenario, it’ll be extremely dangerous to be left living in a major city. The basic recommendation appears to be: get the heck out of the big city, and find a rural home where you can raise your own food, become energy independent, and hunker down.
A worst-case scenario is, by definition, the scariest but also the least probable scenario. Chances are, whatever economic problem is coming, it could be the “worst case,” but it probably won’t be. It makes sense to prepare for the worst, but it doesn’t make sense to fear the worst.
I’ll probably watch parts of this movie more than once. It presents problems, but it doesn’t sell fear. It provides some remedy and some hope and a sense of independence. And most of all, it provides a sense of the faith in God you’ll need to go back to a rural lifestyle.
The movie provides a little technology and a lot of country ambiance. Country living is not as idyllic as this movie portrays, but it can be.
I like this movie. It’s not intense. It’s not profound. But it’s good.
