We must fully recognize and address the threat an EMP presents us with. Literally everything do today is supported by tech. If an EMP hit, everything stops working. Your cell phone and computer, your car, land line phone, lights, likely your heat and air conditioning, your tap may stop flowing, your quartz watch will stop. Everything that depends on electricity, everything we need and use - permanently broken. Spoiled food, no infrastructure for abundant locally sourced goods. Millions could die. We need preventative measures in place. Worrying about spending the money to prevent this? Don't worry about hat. Stop spending so much on war nonsense and spend it somewhere useful. Also - why hasn't the government simply taken over the power industry and provided us all lower as part of the insanely high taxes we pay?
