2016 was definitely a turbulent year; from riots and election-related violence to dozens of terror attacks that were covered up by the media, here is a look back at some of the top stories and articles on OFFGRID Survival from the last year.
A Look back at some of the Crazy things that have happened during 2016:

Remember when liberals used to be the first ones to defend the freedom of speech?

2016 is the year where the forgotten voices started to rise up. From the election of Donald Trump to the Brexit revolt, people across the globe started to take a stand against globalization.
