Actually, there are a lot of groups out there willing to walk the walk. I'll leave the details of that to you to find out.
People are part of society, no matter where you go. from the boondocks to the inner cities. everyone has their respective connections. Survival is
merely the means to an end. We survive, that is the point. What do we survive for? To maintain our connections to society. We need this. It is very
rare to find an individual capable of self sufficiency, as the norm, not just in survival mode. We all have it. Most that are doomed in a survival
situation are those who cannot escape the bonds of society and go to the next level. Those very bonds are what make people unwilling to do what is
needed in order to survive. In essence, some will die of embarrassment, more than exposure.
You cannot blame the people for holding on. You have said "Wouldn't it be safer to go out with some like minded individuals to some remote location
capable of supporting the groups needs before everyone else is?" This is the example of the societal bonds. "WITH" being the key word here. Also,
"before everyone else" which may imply that society is to follow eventually?
PLAN FOR THE WORST, HOPE FOR THE BEST.
