Lets say there has been a moderate nuclear exchange between the US and Russia.
Wife: Like what? Hmmm? I don't even know why I ask you. I should just go ahead and empty every goddamn bullet into my brain and leave you with nothing. That's what I should do.
The Man: Please don't talk like that.
[both turn and look at the boy who's playing in the next room]
Wife: You're right. There's nothing left to talk about. My heart was ripped out of me the night he was born.
The Man: We have to. We will survive this. We are not gonna quit. We're not gonna quit.
Wife: I don't want to just survive. Don't you get it? I don't wanna. Why won't you let me take him with me?
There are few survivors except for roving bands of lawless gangs who will do their worst if they find you. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I have honestly done some thinking about this due to recent events. Here is my question. Lets say there has been a moderate nuclear exchange between the US and Russia. Though you have managed to survive, all our major cities are gone. The government for all intents and purposes has ceased to exist. Communications and infrastructure are non existent. Food is scarce, and radiation contaminates most of the country. There are few survivors except for roving bands of lawless gangs who will do their worst if they find you. There are a few areas that are untouched but they are very far away and you would have to traverse a very dangerous hostile wasteland to get to them. Most of the world is in the same shape. Would you want to live in such a world? What would your reasoning be?
