Most of the problems I’ve encountered have been due to something simple. A switch that wasn’t flipped or an action not taken. We get tripped up by the things we take for granted. In the previous piece about food we see how much we have left to others and easily it would be for that system to hit a snag. Without a basic infrastructure we’re pretty much sunk; whether it’s one you’ve created or has been created by others. Without the essentials for human life, all of our high ideas go right out the window.
