Win's Classic Text Files

Survival Gardening & Food Files

These text files are written from the unique points of view of their respective authors.  Most of these files were written in the golden era of survivalism during the cold war.  With the demise of the Soviet Union, the fat years of the 90s, and an increasingly liberal press, the term survivalist took on negative connotations associated with right-wing, militant, white- supremist radicals.  

Survivalists are simply folks who are dedicated to following a self-reliant lifestyle, typically they vote conservatively and thoughtfully, many are Libertarians, and although preparing for the worst case scenarios that life can dish out, they are not negative.  That is, survivalists tend to live life more fully than most suburb-dwelling liberals who go to work, pay their taxes and expect the government to take care of everything else.

These files are classics written by well known survivalists and examples of documents that were found on the old, pre-Internet, bulletin-board systems (BBS) in the '80s.  You can click on a link to view the text file or right-click and save to your hard drive.
