depends on what happens, could turn into a mad max style world full of looters and murderes or TPTB create a world curance and we are even more screwed down the line and the rich get even more richer

The will be no more food stamps, no more welfare checks, no freebies for anyone and then the riots and looting starts! The bigger the city the worst it will be. I would not get caught in any of the major cities! Thugs now break into homes to steal stuff of value, after TSHTF they will be breaking in to steal food!

Great flick. Ah, memories. I think it'll be more like Harry Canyon though.

The UN building is now a bunch of low apartments.

I cant imagine the day to day life of many people would change much.

What's the worst thing that could happen? Our worthless fiat currency would be worthless?

That's no reason to stop commerce.

It's been Monopoly money long enough now and we all still pretend it has value.

Journey said it best: "Don't stop believing."

As long as we believe in these fairy tale notes everything will go on just fine. Let the rest of the world shut us out. We should have shut them out long ago.

Assuming you mean the U.S.A., well look over to your brothers down south, for a start. You'll be fine. Your luxurious standard of living may decline a little, and struggles of politics may break out, but I assure you it won't be a kind of zombie-apocalypse scenario. All you'd have to do is man up and deal with it, come what come may.

If you are really worried, perhaps get out and travel some of the world, to gain a perspective.

I live in the deep south, and I've been in 3rd world countries...I was just curious what people expected

All I know is the world will fall right after the US does. More than 150 countries depend on US foriegn aid (thats just sad) I fear for my brother man across Europe as I feel they will have the harshest crackdowns and no means of real defense no matter how futile said defense may be.

I'd rather die with a rifle in my hands than live with a rifle in my face
