In this interview, Mike Kimberl and I discuss decentralized solutions to problems like natural disasters. Pensacola suffered massive flooding when a storm hit unexpectedly two weeks ago with roads washing out, several homeless camps flooding, and even the county jail exploding from an unrelated gas leak.
It was a truly tragic situation, but Sean’s Outpost was on the scene immediately helping people while FEMA took a week to declare it an emergency area and respond with aid. Mike has been active with decentralized groups like Food Not Bombs and views the move by the City towards centralization to address the issue of homelessness as a threat to effective decentralized solutions.
