While I agree with most of the article I take a few exceptions...
Misconception number four: Roving criminal hordes will come from the urban environment to your rural home or Bug Out Location (BOL). Nope, these
people do not play chess or even checkers; they do not plan ahead much at all.
Drug dealers and gangs are smart enough to smuggle stuff over guarded international borders and grow weed in the middle of a national forest under the
noses of park rangers. Serial killers are known to have exceptional IQ's. Criminals are never to be underestimated and many will be smart enough (or
will be chased out) to move where there is a possibility of resources. An armed criminal gang can be very dangerous even to secluded communities.
Misconception number five: Needy hungry hordes will come from town. Not likely, when local resources (read: booze and junk food), and the aid
from whatever governmental response is exhausted they will do nothing.
Human history has many examples of mass migrations. When the Huns invaded eastern Europe, barbarian tribes literally ripped up their homes and fled
for the safety of Rome. This included young children, the sick, and the old. Desperation can make the laziest couch potato get up and move.
The best way to survive is either become a part of a criminal gang in control of an area (an important part) or get lucky and be a part of a secluded,
easily defensible, and resource filled community.
