I've been thinking about possible bug-out destinations for quite some time. There's a lot to consider; how easy is it to be a hermit there, how
available are utilities, how seismically stable is it, what's the altitude ("will it survive a pole shift"), what's the government like, how much
control over it does the World Bank/IMF/etc have, is living off the land possible, is it legal to grow cancer cures there, do you speak their language
or do they speak yours; there's so much to consider. I keep coming up with these possibilities:
1. Paraguay. They have the largest natural water aquifer on earth. They have high altitudes. They rarely have quakes. Their president may look like
Dr. Evil, but it's as much a democracy as the US has. (And he has cancer, so once I got there, I could cure him and make the entire nation love
2. Middle-Of-Nowhere, Northern Canada (not Nunavut; more like the Yukon, or even central Alaska). Way too cold for my tastes, but "safe" otherwise
as long as you avoid the volcanoes.
3. Mid-Mexico. Very high elevations (cities at 7000 to 12000 feet), ineffective government (the best kind), but a lot of crime. Also has volcanoes,
but most are extinct (not that they can't awaken). Very hot too. This'd be my least favorite place, but it's also the one I could get to the
quickest (about 8 hours of driving). Driving to Paraguay across Nicaragua and Colombia doesn't sound fun.
There are a lot of places I know to avoid, too. ANY island anywhere, for instance. Any coastlines. Any fascism. Any earthquake-prone areas. The
entirety of Europe and Asia. America (doomed) and Central/Latin America (too low; will be washed away). Australia/New Zealand (getting very fascist
there lately). Northern Africa (currently under siege from the "liberation campaign"). I can't discount Southern Africa, long as it's high enough
and nowhere near Uganda (huge volcano field)...
I dunno. Maybe there isn't anywhere safe. Maybe they've made sure of it. In which case.......... Come on, Rapture! But if the Rapture is
real, what does any Christian have to worry about?
And THAT is why I stopped worrying about it. I'm not going anywhere. I'm here because this is where I was put, and here I stay until forces
beyond my control move me from it. There might not be any hope of liberating America from its multi-national corporate oppressors, but they'll get
what's coming to them.
