I think to be perfectly honest, it would depend on the type of SHTF event. Playing it by ear and knowing when its time to bail would be the best way to approach this.

I believe in the human spirit and that civilization will not be over.
We can still be compassionette towards others...the rules will just change a bit.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating an open house or an all you can eat buffet, but maintaining dignity in yourself and others does go a long way.

There is absolutely NO recruiting or collecting of personal information of members. Doing so will get you a posting ban and possible permanent ban.


15e.) Recruitment/Solicitation:

i) You will not use your membership in the Websites for any type of recruitment to any causes whatsoever. You will not Post, use the chat feature, use videos, or use the private message system to disseminate advertisements, chain letters, petitions, pyramid schemes, or any kind of solicitation for political action, social action, letter campaigns, or related online and/or offline coordinated actions of any kind.

ii) You will not Post, use the chat feature, use videos, or use the private message system to collect or ask for the personal information (data mining) about forum members, including email addresses and "real life" names, in any manner whatsoever, or for any reason whatsoever.

iii) You will not Post, use the chat feature, use videos, or use the private message system to solicit members of the Websites on behalf of another message board, online community or competitor. You will not attempt to use your membership to encourage or lure other members in any way to other websites or discussion boards in competition with TAN. Doing so will result in removal of your Post(s) and immediate termination of your account.

I guess my glass is half full tonight. And any SHTF scenario won't include the total implosion of civilization.

What you will probably see is something similar to the Kevin Costner movie "The Postman" you will have one large group run as a dictatorship, well armed, controlling a certain region while keeping everyone else there subserviant to them. Thinking your gonna be living out in the woods off the land is really not a possiblity as you will more than likely be discovered eventually and brought into their system or killed.

Unless you have the knowledge and the health to survive in the wilds of Alaska or some such place your more that likely going to have to live in one of these controlled society's.

I appreciate the replies so far, but I think the Mod is correct.

I suppose this could be considered an attempt to "recruit others to a cause".

Oh well, the idea sounded good.

Thanks to all of those that responded and good luck to you all.

Taking care of yourself and family is helping others. Emergency workers will have one less small group of people they have to care for. This frees up resources and time.

I can't even imagine hitting the road after a SHTF event without getting stopped on the road by a gangs of thugs wanting a way out too. So the secret is to get out before it happens. And in part, that's why I come to ATS.

Very nice!

If we were able to follow through on this idea, that could be the sticker I mentioned in the OP!

Thanks gooch
