Welcome

Thanks for visiting Sustainable Independence in Eco-friendly OsumPODS (Optimal sustainable unishell modular Perpetually Operable Detached Superstructures). This site is dedicated to saving Earth and building a better tomorrow for all of Earth’s creatures, man included. This site is for the non-conformist who believes that the future of our species will depend upon independence from mass infrastructure, global trade, mass consumerism, social welfare, insurance, and government solutions for everything. OsumPODS is a conceptual solution for providing autonomy for everyone, thus allowing freedom […]

Outlook for the Future: The vulnerability of our political and technological shortsightedness and the most probable outcome

Destruction or Prosperity Because of human nature, people accept the status quo and go on as if there is some guarantee that life will get better. As long as the lights come on and there is food on the table, it’s easy enough to ignore the fact that we are depleting our natural resources, polluting the world, and going bankrupt in spite of the rape of the environment. The problems are extremely complex because they are both political and technological. […]

The “Fiscal Cliff”

Typical of our government, last hour negotiations are in progress to prevent us going over the fiscal cliff. This is the perception that Obama wants us to swallow, and that Republicans are being obstructionists as usual. The reality is we’re already over the cliff. The question is how soon will we hit bottom? Had Romney acquired the presidency, there would have been some hope of slowing the fall, some sort of parachute, and we all could all have breathed a […]

Anarchy in America

Although it may be true that being a cog in a well-lubricated machine is the simplest way to obtain a high standard of living, it is imperative that we use common sense and realize that the more interdependent we become, the more we are at risk when the machine breaks down. It is becoming increasingly apparent that America, and the world as a whole, has tried to solve its problems by becoming a huge machine, and that parts of the […]

US negative rating well deserved

Does it amaze anyone that Standard & Poor’s downgraded the United States to a negative rating, or that the White House was incensed? We have a runaway government that is about to pay the piper. Personally, I have been warning friends and family for years that the instability of a global economy, the imbalance of trade, and the spendthrift ways of congress would lead this nation to ruin. Right now the world is gambling that things aren’t as bad as […]

Independence (part 1)

Redirecting our future: The worldview touted by many professed great thinkers in reality places individuals near the status of ants. It appears President Barack Obama embraces more government, and views world government as the ultimate solution to most of man’s problems. The United States may well be on the road to a new world order where all people fall under the scrutiny and powers of covert organizations that are answerable to no one. Too often such ideas are touted as […]

Building a Better Tomorrow: Introduction to OsumPODS (part 2)

World Commerce: Demographic trends continue to move toward global interdependence for human survival. In an increasingly volatile world, it is not a desirable trend to be in. Frequent meltdowns in the stock market are a sure indicator that we’re on the wrong track. US manufacturers would currently be hard pressed to supply such basics as shoes and clothing for this nation. Because US businesses fail to compete in a global market in many areas, our trade deficit continues to grow, […]
