SIMPLE QUESTION: Even if every person in America was on top of this situation, and knowledgeable about it... what do you expect people to do? What
good is all this internet hand-wringing?
When will you to visqueen seal your windows? And for how long? And what's the purpose while those Reactors are spewing poison... and is expected to
do so for years, or decades? I have four 100' rolls of plastic in my shed but I/we still have to breathe the air.
How about stockpiling food? I have several years supply if I don't share with others who didn't... or die of radiation first... But when it's gone
what do I/we do? The world's food supply will still be totally contaminated for years and decades (or longer)... and eventually I/we must eat it
What about water? I have a well and a back-up generator and 200 gallons stored in plastic barrels besides, but when that runs out, or becomes
contaminated, there's no choice except to drink whatever water is available.
And there's a great garden out back, and greenhouse too, with plenty of spare seeds; but I presume that the veggies are already contaminated, or soon
will be; and since I'm out working in it, I presume I'm contaminated as well... or soon will be. The radiation will just keep on coming, won't it?
There's guns and ammo to protect what I have, and the ability too, but with this future there aren't many percentages in doing that either, especially
when a bullet is kinder than dying of radiation or induced cancer... Take a look at the pics on the main thread. So what's the point in planning for
And fuel, there's 200 spare gallons stored behind my shed to be used at any moment to Bug Out, but to go where? And for how long? I already live in
the country but every place is the same when death falls from the sky.
In troubled times I've lived a long and full life and will admit to some attachment to it. But even though I'm right with God and His World, can I
expect "Faith" to protect me from radiation poisoning? And the 'luck of the draw' is pretty much out the window with radiationing poisoning too.
You see, I'm a survivalist and a damn competent and well-prepared one as well, and I plan to survive long under difficult and dangerous circumstances.
But what is the point to living that life when our world is being filled with radiation and we'll live long enough to watch everything else die
What does anybody think they can do about this? If the answer is "nothing" then worldwide denial is the appropriate response; and is not just the
best answer, but the only answer. This mess is just beginning, we're not even 2 months into the rest of our life with something that will continue
indefinately and likely just get worse.
In addition, as the situation grows more desperate, men of action will be forced to take desperate measures with "hail-mary" acts and hopeless
prayers for success. Why wouldn't China decide to take a chance and nuke their neighbor rather than see their country (and the world) destroyed by
Japan's burning trash pile?
Soon will come a tipping point where desperate action will seem reasonable to desperate men, regardless of however crazy it (or they) appear. And
meanwhile, it's safe to predict that things will go from bad to worse very quickly and probably very soon. Murphy will supervise this I bet.
Frankly it's not difficult anticipate the demise of all life in Japan over this disaster and that's the price they've paid for nuclear folly. But
pretty steep cost for the rest of us as well.
