Wow, thank you all very much for your replies!!!
Me personally if i was already in my retreat, i would like to allow them in.
once Mr & Mrs have-not are contained.....
They would be advised that- a conditional period is required before they are entitled to full group facilities, they are feed / clothed and any wounds
treated right away, a nights rest, and such.
Safety in numbers etc, they could well be used for unskilled labour, for a while general day to day duties, maybe try them out for a while.
But now comes the crunch:
Consider this, angle if you will. In the situation ive described the have-nots are not in a life or death struggle. They have, in my scenario, a
month's worth of food. They want a place to live, for which they are willing to trade "unskilled" labour.
One assumes if they came up to the retreat in their vehicle that says roads are open, people are still moving, petrol is available. In such a
scenario, a comfortable looking place that hasn't made it impossible for people to get close is going to see a LOT of people looking for just what
they are looking for.
So lets assume they are the...fifth? tenth? twentieth? family asking the same thing.
If roads are blocked you won't get through either. If they are open - you will be one in a great long line of refugees - with, in my scenario,
precious little to offer.
It becomes a very moral dilema..dosent it!
It really is something that ive often wondered about, and feel that any "group" in operation at this time should SERIOUSLY think about this type of
scenario, the do's and donts, the outcomes and the what-ifs????
Cheers all for your very well recieved replies
