He said that North Korea was working on a satellite, which could spell doom for America: “As it would orbit around the Earth, and as it got over the United States, they would detonate that nuclear weapon and set off what’s called an EMP, an electromagnetic pulse which could take down the entire electrical grid on the eastern seaboard, potentially killing millions.” The very day before Cruz spoke, in the tatty, cavernous but crowded Expo Idaho Center in Boise, speaker and entrepreneur Ben Gilmore laid out a much more elaborate version of the same catastrophe. Speaking to a rapt audience at prepper expo SurvivalCon, Gilmore pointed to a projected map showing much of the North American continent swathed in a deep red.

How to Grow 100 Pounds of Potatoes in 4 Square Feet On many occasions, we've been tempted to grow our own potatoes.

Why America Is Obsessed With Survivalism Lately we’ve become somewhat obsessed with movies, TV shows, books, and video games that envision a post-apocalyptic world. This October, “The Walking Dead” will premier its seventh season on AMC, while its spin-off “Fear the Walking Dead” debuts its second season in April. Although zombie movies have been around for decades, it’s only been in the past 15 years or so that the post-apocalyptic tale has become an important cultural touchstone in America, particularly in imagining what life would look like in the aftermath. What does this fixation on the idea of survival say about our society?
