I didn't know what to entitle this thread... so i just named it 'Is this ife?'

My question is:

What do we do as a people, when/if a new war begins?

Do we just keep going on with our daily lives working for cash to pay bills and buy food?? Not me because I don't work right now... not in the public sector anyway. I work but its usually for free and not every day or week even but you know what I mean... all those who do go work 24/7 in their jobs... will they just continue to go about their every day live's as if nothing is happening??

It's a bit like when a terrorist incident occurs... a few hours later, everyone is back to doing their usual thing. It's strange actually when you sit back and watch it unfold. It's like saying 'oh... look a guy just tried to bomb that place or did actually bomb that place but oh well, lets go back to our job, we have bills to pay'.

ha ha. It's kinda funny, you must admit... how people just go about their business.

I mean in the olden days people would pick up their weapons and go to war but now we just go to work to continue to pay bills!

If a WWW breaks out, what are you going to do? I dunno what i'd be doing if planes started dropping bombs closer to me... for starters I have MH problems which i keep under control with pills and by staying away from places that make it worse but if bombs started dropping, i'll possibly be in a right panic and my sypmtoms could go through the roof (hopefully not but who knows). Maybe I would just try get out of here, see who i can, who i know and go somewhere if possible or maybe i'd go join the army to defend myself... I dunno, as i said it would depend on my state of mind. I know one thing for sure.. I certainly wouldn't be worrying about paying bills!

Prepare.

Prepare now.

Modern Day Society is perpetually just 72 hours away from Anarchy!
thetwelvegates.org...



Buy food, 50 pound bags of rice and get some mylar and oxy absorbers. Same with dried beans and pasta.

These are your carb fillers.

Stock up on some multi-vitamins and canned meats to cover nutrition and protein.

Get a few water filters... Sawyer, lifestraws, etc.

Cover your basic needs now while you still can.

thanks for your input... I hope you are wrong that's about to break out into all out war.

I will check up on what Mylar and oxy absorbants are...

But honestly i'm not too sure irt's going to break out... its close I know that but things could change... its 'change' or 'escalate'.

maybe you`ll join the army? I don`t think you will have a choice if a world war breaks out you`ll probably be drafted.
when they need more bodies to feed into the meat grinder they will take anyone regardless of mental health issues or physical disabilities.

a lot of survivalist hoarders are going to be disappointed if a world war breaks out and they get drafted and sent to the front lines, all their preparations will have been for nothing.

over 10 million american men were drafted during world war 2

I've knew this guy he prepped for the coming collapse all his life. He was really good at it. He had all kinds of food and water purification systems. And then he died in 2014.

This is America. Financial collapse is not going to happen. The CEOs would double people's salaries before they would ever allow any of their power to be compromised.

We wouldnt be able to go about our business. Prices will jump. Oue daily lives restricted...internet, tv, radio. Store price jump as well. Possible restrictions you cant even imagine.

Maybe all electronics ruined by bombs, pulses...gov. restrictions on usage. Cant call home...kids cant call mom, Skype is no, Facebook gone...cars on the side of the road...little or no money, food...stores emptying...it could be all of the above, some of it...or none of it.

With the next WW...life as we know it day to day...will change in ways we cant even understand...But you wont be doing what you are doing now the same way....and you mentioned pills?

What if you cant get them because they are limited due to war, production, transporting them...keeping them in stock? This will happen....just when?

Honestly?

There are lots and lots of "depends" that you have to look at:

Depends on the type of war (conventional or nuclear?).

Depends on where you live (what country? City or out in the country?).

Depends on you (are you of drafting age or not?).

I see many assuming that any world war will automatically be nuclear. It could be completely conventional instead.

In a case like that, again, it will depend on a lot of things: Do you live in a country where the bullets are flying? Or, like the US during WW2, where the fighting was happening elsewhere?

In the latter: yes, you'll continue to go to work, get your pay check and pay your bills. You might see rationing of certain things. And if you're of draft age, that could happen to you.

In the case of a nuclear war: again, there are still a lot of depends hinged on it.

Every assumes right away that any nuclear exchange means the end of the world. But that actually depends on how many nukes, yield, where they are detonated and how they are detonated.

Between all the countries around the world who did above ground nuclear testing, there have been over 2,000 detonations made above ground. We're still here going strong.
On the other hand, most of those were small yield and in isolated areas. Not large yield on population centers.

Still, there is some good news: most nuclear devices are designed to do air burst, not surface impact. The reason that's good news is: less fallout. Air burst detonations do much more damage (both bombs dropped on Japan at the end of WW2 were air burst). There will still be some fallout, but no where near the amount you would have with a surface detonation.

Depending on where you live will also make huge differences. If you live in a isolated area, no where near a potential nuclear target, and weather patterns are in your favor, there would be a very good chance you won't have much to worry about (as far as the bombs go). You'd just have to worry about living like it's the 18th and 19th centuries again (sustaining yourself with no infrastructure).

You can prep if your worried, and especially if you live somewhere you think you have a chance. Or, don't prep if you live somewhere it's going to be over for you in a split second.

Now....interesting factoid: A asteroid five miles wide that has never been noticed could fall out of the sky and hit the Earth any day. The devastation that would ensue would be as bad, or actually even worse than any nuclear war. Depending on where it hits, it could be over for you in an instant, or you'll find yourself living in a world, struggling to survive.

The point is: you could spend every day, all day being worried all the time about this, and most likely end up with a lot more grey hairs, stomach ulcers, and a short life span due to too much stress in your life........OR........you can take steps to try and be prepared like anyone, and then live your life like a normal person and enjoy it while you can.

The choice is yours.

I'm not prepping. But I do have a few cans of corn.

One day at a time...Don't worry, be happy....treasure every day and make it a party.



You can drive yourself crazy thinking about the future...it can be obsessive and make everyone around you unhappy.

i am estimating if it is big war we cant go to work. but today i read something from fool crow page and he says we should go to work even there is little pay or we cant help people spiritually too. that we grow weak in our attempts to help them. so i think it fits to war too. then you should go work even if it is really really difficult.because it helps both way i understand.

Thanks for your reply but as i said above 'I'm not worrying', it was just soething i was thinking about earlier because it just seems things are getting closer... hope i'm wrong and peace talks will win out..

Of course this will depend on Jung-Un complying with the rules and Putin siding with the rest of us.

But yeah, I'm not living in doom and gloom but was just wondering why I see people going about their daily live's moments after a terrorist tries to blow people up or attempt to hack them to death. So i was thinking whether they would still do that if bombs started flying through the air.

btw I live in London, England... which is very populous and a certain destination for bombs to hit... well, especially central london anyway.

Seriously?

Na... in the event of war... nothing else matters... not work... not money... not 'what was on tv tonight'. I do understand that certain jobs would still be undertaken but things couldn't just continue as it is.

Oh I can answer that: Because normal feels better.

Most people when faced with stressful situations will reach out to cling on to anything normal so they don't have to be afraid.

What could be more normal that continuing to go about your business, work, shopping, etc?

yes. only what happens to others close to you and their wellbeing matters i know.
thats why you sould go to work. thats what fool crow says also.

but if time skips and your neighbour becomes an egytian and universe collapses..well you dont have many chances. but it is best to trust these people. they wouldnt say something just like that. they wish the best for you.

Really i would give my left nut to see it this time round. If you can answer me this question i will take back everything i said now. How you you supposed to make a war with all the obese men and woman in usa? You will for one not get 75% of men and wowan of drafting age to fit in a humvee or god help on the back of a truck. Thosefat asses will be out of breath before you get them on the transport. If you somehow get them on there how you plan on getying them off without brokenlegs, feet, backs est? Then in a war situation 2 things is expected from soldiers moving at rapid pace and duck for cover and fsll and shoot. None of that will happen nope sorry no.

Called Boot Camp.

When you get drafted, they don't hand you a uniform, a gun and then put you on the battle field.

You spend a few months pretty much not given a lot of time to eat, and a LOT of time having your ass mashed into the ground with training.

You loose a lot of fat, and put on a lot of muscle. Went through it myself.

Ideally, in peace time with a all volunteer force, you can be picky and only take people of a certain weight, or tell them they have to loose "X" amount first.

War time and draft? You take them and exercise the crap out of them. They either end up passing muster, or they don't.
