A couple of questions to entertain while you wish for the world to collapse. Things people in 3rd world countries deal with on a daily basis.
Why would you want your life to be worse than it is? You have money problems? You have a hard time making ends meet? Well what are you going to do
when gas goes to the person who has the most to offer? What are you going to do when a loaf of bread and a few vegatables cost you a tire from your
A time will come when you need to go to the city reservoir 20 miles away to find fresh water for your family, you will be confronted by militia and
turned back to where you came from, or possibly you'll sneak to the reservoir under cover of night with your neighbors to grab a few gallons and hike
back by sunrise. Hopefully you won't be shot and killed for the bread and water you carry.
How will you get corn meal, flour and salt? The stores are empty..and if you live in a city, where would you find it? Can you murder people to steal
what they have? Everybody talks about protecting themselves, but what about the killing and crimes YOU will have to do to aquire what YOU didn't
Farmer communities will be armed to the teeth to protect their foods, will you fight them to grab a few corn stalks and brocolli for your starving
family back at home? WIll you kill them?
It goes on and on. Where will you go to the bathroom? How about simple medicines? Diabetic shots, excedrin, cold meds, bandages and antiseptic.
You'll take your son who is suffering from stomach pains to the nearest doctor, and he'll charge you you're whole house or possiblly all the food
you have left, to help you. Don't like it? Too bad, because he'll have a bunch of partners who are all armed and ready to shoot anyone attempting to
take his medical stash.
Local Police will band together and run their own towns, corruption will reign and they will take what they need by force to collectively care for
You'll eventually have to pay a "tax" to remain protected in your community, after you run out of bullets or they are stolen from you. Women will
be taken advantage of to pay some of this "tax".
How many candles do you have to operate at night in your house before you run out? Do you attempt to build a fire in your apartment?
Where would you go get bullets for your guns? How much would they "cost"? 4 bottle of Gin and several loaves of bread?
Where will you go to get information to find out what is happening and when help will arrive? No T.V. , No internet, maybe short wave radios to
receive transmissions, but who has the equipment to send transmission? How much will they want from you to allow you to use it to contact relatives
on the East/West coast?
I'm talking abaout people who aren't ex-special ops or highly trained battle hardened soldiers like you all claim to be...
Think of what you always wanted in your life, that you THINK you'll be able to attain after the collapse and ask yourself "How will I get it, ad how
much will I have to offer to get it". Everything we have require a service to operate, cell phones, electricity, etc. We produce nothing, so non
farmer communities will be left to looting and stealing to survive.
Houses, cars? forget it, no use..no gas, no elec. Entertainment? where? How much you have to barter for it? Start a business to earn a way? Goodluck
not getting shot or "taxed" by the local government gangs.
And last but not least, WHO will watch over your daughter , wife and son while your out for days looking for food and help?
