If the SHTF and doesn't kill us all, our society and civilization would completely collapse.
This means the next morning when you wake up, for the first time ever you would be truly free.
Food Water shelter, work with not for you fellow humans to mutually survive.
It might not be all bad.

PS I am also giving you a flag because I hope this thread can attract the attention of some of our other insightful ATS community members. It is disheartening to hear someone who is so determined to give up if SHTF. I really hope for the sake of the rest of the world that you can discover your potential/purpose before anything like that happens. We all have something great we can give back to the world...

Now, I think stocking up on the essentials, honing one's survival skills, and generally preparing for a breakdown in society are basically good things. So keep on keepin' on. My question is more a philosophical one.
See, I'm a very depressed person under normal circumstances. If faced with The S*** Hitting The Fan (and I mean in a permanent way), my plan comes in 3 parts: 1) Hope I don't survive. 2) If I do, kill myself quickly. 3) Or get someone to kill me for me, since that kind of person should be abundant. I don't want to do what I already do now, but with no Internet or running water. That's when I throw in the towel. I don't have children, so that's removed from the equation for me. I certainly wouldn't want my children living in that sort of environment.
My question is: There are many people working very hard to survive an impending catastrophe, but to what end? Why do you want to survive? What do you hope to accomplish?
