But even if you're able to stock up with 6 months or more of commodities and necessities it still doesn't address the issue of gangs and thugs who will soon figure out who has got food and other necessities when most people don't. Because most of the God-Less thugs I've ever encountered in my life that have no conscience or morals will think nothing of killing people in a heartbeat just to get their next meal>> and those types of people will think nothing of killing you, raping your wife or girlfriend and hijacking all of your belongings in very short order.Naperville wrote: ↑Mon Sep 13, 2021 11:54 pmI think we have touched on some of the issues, but I'll point out that all or most of these issues can be mitigated with planning and investing in food, water, possibly some tools for security, and more. You need 3 to 6 months of stores to make it through the toughest part. During this time you can plan what your next steps will be.
There is no need to roll over and give up. There are also entire forums on the internet dealing with prepping and survivalism that discuss these issues.
Because in a true survival situation that most of us modern Americans or any other modern society for that matter have no conception of at that time will not even have a clue until it's too late. Nothing short of barbaric mayhem will transpire if you have no Police, Firemen, Ambulances or any other emergency services that we currently take for granted that will not be available in a societal meltdown. Any aid that is normally available by making a 911 call will no longer be available>> you will truly be on your own to fend for yourself. You will have to help yourself against criminals and/or any medical emergencies you would need in the event of a true emergency. Then you have the huge problem of all of the coward people that will immediately sell out and turn into Judas-Goats in a feeble attempt to save their own hide>> or to sell you out for their own gain or their own survival.
Right now as we speak in the comfort/safety of our own homes>> just take a hard look at big cities like Chicago right now with all of the Police and medical help available where the thugs and gangs are already killing people like game animals with very little help from the government entities>> and that's already happening now as we speak in a seemingly normal social order. Spydergirl hit the nail on the head when she mentioned the "Thug-Gang" problems that we will all inevitably face at some point during a survival situation. And you don't hear that addressed much during survival seminars. Nor do you hear of game plans to defend yourself if problems of that magnitude were to arise. Even if you are armed you will still have your limitations. Because in a scenario of total mayhem nothing will be available if you happen to run out of anything.
Very few people even have a clue of what could be on the horizon.
And you never will because that goes against their agenda, most reality actually does to tell the truth.
It's all about selling people stuff in the end.
The idea of being able to survive if whatever happens is fun to talk about, but reality would be much more brutal and nothing like they seem to want to think or told how it would be. The toys are fun for them to play with and talk about with others.
Hear most of them talk and it's more like an extended camping trip were they are sitting around doing whatever and maybe going out hunting or something. While looking at their food supply for the next how many ever years.
And then shortly after they are done with their camping trip they would go back to their homes and all will be back to normal.
That is NOT reality if total breakdown ever happened.
Most of the people I grew up with and know all would be be dead within the 1st month or two, some of the survivalist's might last slightly longer if they are lucky. That is the harsh reality of it all.
