Self Reliance (circa 1951)

Self Reliance is a theme that I would like to promote here.  While surfing YouTube the other day, I came across this 1950's educational film that fit really well with my own idea of what self reliance should be. I've always loved these old B&W educational films. I know it seems quaint and a little campy, but the message is as valuable today as it was 60 yrs ago.

Laid out in the film are four tenets:
  • Assume Responsibility
  • Be Informed
  • Know where you're going
  • Make your own decisions
How often do we find ourselves following this advice, and what are we giving up when we don't?
