In my metaphor the Bunker represents all the real challenges we each face living on this planet. For those in the U.S. we are concerned about money; finding love; what jobs should we pursue; how should we educate ourselves; do we have children; taxes; how do we define success in our lives; who do we support politically; and what does it really mean to be an American among a thousand other things. The less fortunate in our country and other countries focus more on the immediate needs of food, clothing, shelter, and health issues. We are all concerned with crime, war, threats to civil order, and climate and pollution problems.
The Bunker is the material, dog eat dog world of survival as each of us experiences it. It is the brick and mortar, steel and concrete of our industrialized society. The land, sea, and air of the place we call home. It is the thousands of political, social, religious, economic, and family relationships we have with our fellow sojourners on this big, blue planet we call the Earth.
