As many of you eluded to, the biggest problem with this question is that it's so difficult to imagine being in such a position, so I suppose even
attempting to answer this question would ultimately depend on what position you were already in.
And if deciding to tell someone, who would that 'someone' be? Just people you're very concerned with personally, or people with children, or
people who seem quite virulent and capable of surviving without the accustomed amenities? Or maybe just people who might be the most inclined to
believe what you're saying, so they might spread the word further with little reflection upon yourself, taking some of the burden off the top as it
As it stands, in my opinion, the knowing for sure and not doing anything or warning anyone might be too much to handle, but the flip-side of that (my
family dying or living unimaginably difficult lives) might also be too much to handle. Trying to imagine this, I truly think I would do everything
within my power to get my family out of harms way without saying anything to them...only because I know the stance of a few that would blab as loud as
they could and as far and wide as possible, which would certainly remove any chance of living comfortably afterward.
Have any of you seen a movie called, "The Road?" I envision just this kind of existence after whatever it might be happens (at least above ground),
and I see myself just as the father does. Yes, I would try to prepare loved ones with whatever powers of persuasion I could produce, as they would be
the only ones capable of hearing my words, but I would also accept the fact that I would never have ANY comfort again, while doing as much as I could
for my kids as long as I could muster the ability, while also educating them for any eventuality I might see ahead of them. Pretty much what we do
now, just a very different, and much more difficult perspective to face.
It truly is a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' kind of scenario isn't it? I'm sure it has already approached people from many different
perspectives, so maybe it just depends on what your current "status" is. Able to live with it or not, or having dependents or not?
That's really very discouraging...but it certainly affords some semblance of hope too, as not everyone has children or loved ones, someone would say
something, and we might still have a chance if we can disseminate truth from fiction.
Tough question, and I thank you all for giving it your best shot.
With all these bunkers being built, and very few near coastlines, perhaps it would behoove many of us to move away from the beautiful beaches we've
fallen in love with if we're able?
Not that I know anything.
