  • Going Galt: Surviving Economic Armageddon



    by Daxton Brown
    Available direct from Amazon.com and their printer Createspace Order Trade Paperback Here

    The United States of America is now bankrupt. It doesn't matter which political party will be in power over the next decades, the over-hang of $100 Trillion in unfunded liabilities from the local to Federal level, plus a hollow banking system, means there is no way to tax ourselves enough, or even cut spending enough, to have any chance to grow our way out of our problems.

    What this means is that the productive elements of society will at some point go on strike, whether by choice or because they are forced to pack up their bags and hide. From Ayn Rand's famous novel Atlas Shrugged, comes the phrase "Who Is John Galt". Galt is the character who epitomizes the productive entrepreneur so fed up with the restrictions of the bureaucrats and corporatists that he decides to start a revolt of society's creators. In our current financial dilemma, Rand's theme has lead to the suggestion that productive citizens may only be able to survive by "Going Galt" and dropping out. The following Youtube gives a good idea of the pickle we are in.

    But how does one survive if one drops out of society, even for a short period? It isn't like you were taught this in high school. And living like a hermit in a cave isn't an option that would appeal to thinking humans. However, "Going Galt" isn't about dropping out of society, but how to harden and insulate your lifestyle from the chaos that will come as the welfare state collapses.

    The Federal Government only takes in 60% in revenues of what it spends, the difference being made up by the Federal Reserve printing Monopoly money. This distortion has already shown up in high inflation rates and unemployment, with statistics so bad the government lies about them. You have no choice but to plan an exit strategy.

    That's what this book is about, how to survive the upcoming economic collapse everyone knows is coming. What this book is not is anti-government, or anti-tax, or an anarchist cookbook, those are armchair discussions for the idle class. What "Going Galt" is about is surviving No Matter What Happens.

    Could be best Survival Preparedness book of 2011, March 22, 2011
    By Citizen John (USA)
    (TOP 50 REVIEWER) Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    This review is from: Going Galt: Surviving Economic Armageddon (Paperback) I recommend this book for relevance, presentation and tone. At the same time I was disappointed with much of the coverage that was too brief, hasty and therefore superficial. Survival preparedness books usually cover too much at the expense of depth. However, Daxton Brown just scored a big win for the genre by producing a highly readable, page-turner edition.

    Going Galt is one of the best in Survival Preparedness literature. It's easier to read than most, and the author has an excellent tone of urgency tempered with reasonableness. Survival literature is a growth area. At this time, James Rawles' book, How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It: Tactics, Techniques, and Technologies for Uncertain Times, is in the Top 100 best-selling Amazon list.

    The 34 chapters visible ("Look Inside" shown on cover) advertise the topics. The average chapter is just over 10 pages, with variation. Water treatment & storage has 29 pages. For urban survival, water storage could be problematic for many. Treatment depends on several conditions. Options are well-presented. Advantages and disadvantages of the many water treatment methods highlight the difficulty of this topic. Chlorine treatment alone has several subcategories. There are instructions for building a berkey water filter from scratch to use for storm water ponds or runoff from parking lots. Water treatment is also well-covered by Arthur Bradley in Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family.

    One topic dealt with in only the most introductory manner is urban survival. For some reason, authors tend to gloss over this area and it vexes me. For those of us with children and elderly people to look after, relocation to a safe area away from a population center is extra difficult. Brown says if your neighbors have their own food and water, it will be possible to form a common defense with them. This is consistent with Sean Brodrick's approach in The Ultimate Suburban Survivalist Guide: The Smartest Money Moves to Prepare for Any Crisis. However, Rawles has thought about this problem deeply. His best-selling book presents the argument for a rural retreat, far enough away from a city and the highways people can use. I'm afraid that when the bad time arrives, we won't discover which author is correct until it's too late to exercise the option. However, I worked out the cost of Rawles' retreat to be tens of thousands of dollars not counting the real estate.

    As with almost all survival books, many lists are presented. There are exhaustive lists for food and good content on food as well. Brown says not to worry about what we'll have to think about during this difficult time. We'll be thinking of food and how to get it. The Sarajevo War Experience list was intriguing but no sources were provided. Some very interesting comments were quoted from one Sarajevo War survivor who was not named. Apparently, toilet paper was a luxury. We could conclude toilet paper would be a great item to stock for utility and trade value, but again - I want sources.

    Brown is urgent yet reasonable. He advises we start redirecting some time and energy from our normal activities toward survival preparation. The book covers Declinism in 4 pages (Chapter I), which is appropriate for a survival book. At this stage, it's prudent to limit time spent trying to figure out if the "system" is going to collapse. What is needed now is good preparation so that we may helpful to others when the time comes. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Survival Book So Far...., April 16, 2011
    By S. Hodges (Texas, USA) - See all my reviews
    (REAL NAME) Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    This review is from: Going Galt: Surviving Economic Armageddon (Paperback)
    This book is readable, entertaining, and more sensible and well balanced than any other survival book I've read. I started reading a friend's copy and before finishing I was compelled to order one for my own reference library. Even though I'm fairly well prepared, I found several pointers and ideas to incorporate. Brown (unlike Rawles) doesn't make me feel like the book is just an excuse to show off his knowledge--it reads more like a conversation between friends. The editing & writing style were acceptalble to me--I actually think a PERSON edited rather than depending on spell-check! If you are just starting to read & think about preparedness, buy this book! And if you've read all the survival books--I'll bet even you will find some little pearls! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

    5.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought..., October 11, 2011
    By Thomas Griswold Jr. (Rockwall, Texas United States) - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This review is from: Going Galt: Surviving Economic Armageddon (Paperback) This book gives a lot of information for actions before and after society's collapse. The list of most stolen items after unrest is worth the price of the book.
