I find it funny when people just load up on groceries and buy a gun. This doesn't accomplish anything. If society were to fall apart, organization is
key. Do you have friends you can trust? Is your family near? These are the things that are important. How do you plan on defending that food, that
ammo? With one gun? Realistically the places that are going to hurt if society failed are the ones that are in the cities, and by cities I mean
anything over 5000. To many people, and not enough resources. Hopefully the people in there will try to control there own territories and the outlying
terrorities, and leave the people in the sticks alone. This being said, I doubt it. Thats why I have made friends in my town of 1500, thats why I know
all the ways of getting in and out of town, thats why I know the town is surrounded by a river on 3 sides, thats why I know how to make dynamite.
Thats why I know that instead of loading up on groceries and bringing them to my house to rot, I'm going to help organize this town, and keep the
groceries in the grocery store, running a generator to keep stuff frozen, and post guards to protect it from thieves both in town, and outside. If you
can ration it out, protect it, and protect your livestock, and farming fields, then you are self sufficient. Additionally, if there is only one way in
and out, and trucks, cars, or wagons have to unload because they can't cross, it makes it a hard target when trying to hoof out supplies you just
took, and are taking sniper fire. In trying to repel an invasion, you have to slow down the speed of battle, control the high ground, and control how
the enemy comes to you. This can be done with small towns, not large ones. Additionally, in my town, theres a cement making company and a concrete
block making company. this will come in handy for making fortified positions to protect what we have.
On another note. I myself have seen alot of my dreams come true, Especially the ones where I'm doing mundane BS, but its repeated a couple times. The
ones that scare the hell out of me are the ones of me leading a militia, and for the most part leading my people. I hope its just a dream, but when
I've had it since I was 8, and I've seen other dreams come true, I hope to God its not. Maybe I'm delusional, maybe not.
The good news is that I'm always much older in these dreams, so hopefully its not for a while. Ofcourse, malnutrition can age a body quickly, so one
never knows. I just hope we have 5 more years, this way my youngest is 10, instead of younger.
anyways, enough my rambling, I suggest you get a plan for organization together. If you are that afraid of the future get out of large cities.
Best of luck,
