Do you give credence to infrastructure? There would be many disparate people that would need cohesiveness. See this TNG episode for what I mean:

Not a cobbler, mechanic, iron worker, warrior, etc but someone that would be needed to enable all to work together?

oh good christ! a "community organizer"???????????????

Peanut butter can keep you alive for a long time. Learn something new everyday, Dick.



Everyone has their brand of choice, but peanut butter (in my case, creamy JIF) is a cheap, quick source of protein, fats, carbs, and calories when you need them. Most peanut butter will have an expiration date that's 1.5 - 2 years beyond the date you purchase it. I once hiked all over Missoula, Montana with nothing but a jar of peanut butter, a spoon, and a water bottle equipped with a filter. Article Source: EzineArticles.com...

Simple: Do you need somebody who can repair anything mechanical or electronic, or build it from spare parts or junk?

By the way, I don't think in such a scenario I'd be wondering around seeking a community, there are 3 or 4 communities I am part of that I am sure would pull together in such a scenario.

All these hippies saying that using weapons to keep people out is wrong... I think that there will be takers. And they will try to take everything.

But we must keep everyone alive, because even those takers will need porn and commodoties. And if you have a large enough guard then u can trade with them.

But it would probably be better to trade between small communities and kill anyone wandering around and take their stuff. Anyone saying I am so tough I won't be killed is probably gona die, strength in numbers.

They should just live in the communities and buy my porn. Everyone is gonna be robbing grocery stores and stuff when SHTF, I will go straight for the places they sell porn.

Think of it this way, how many porn addicts are there on the internet...what happens when there is no more internet.... thats alot of addicts... they need their fix haha

They didn't really say it was wrong, they said that violence incites violence. I'm guessing that you didn't read "The Lord of the Flies" in school, did you?

It doesn't matter if you agree, that is his belief. He's probably also not above using violence if it's a last resort. Maybe he should just explain it to you, because I'm only guessing from what he typed.

And they win my hero award.

Although they don't say they will be hording porn, just building a bunker. So I don't think they will be too much trouble if they are so scared they want to turtle.

Also I think there will be lots of porn addicts to go around. Imagine what i could get for a fleshlight post SHTF.... or a vibrating rabbit....

I would say

"I am considering joining your community but I need to know more about it first, I have services I can provide and tools to do so, I will need to meet with your leader however & if it happens that I am just passing through then I have wares we could possibly trade however I do not have them here with me."

Well If your just looking at the physical side of things ,what can I say?
Check this out:
"And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented, gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Now there were about four hundred men with him." (1 Sam. 22:2)
