If the SHTF I'm taking the world with me. I'm sorry, but I hate all that is " Society " today, I know this almost labels me as a terrorist, but I
don't think of it this way. One day society will end, it just will and on that day I will do everything in my power to preserve myself and family and
unfortunately humans tend to become very dangerous when " Rules " go out the window. Looting, rape, assault, murder, violence to the extremes.
In chaos no one is a friend, no one can be trusted when they have the same mentality. Preserve myself and my family, unfortunately that doesn't leave
much to the way of trust or friendship. If we are all starving looking for a meal, and someone says I know where some food is if you will help me get
it. Do you help them? How do you know you are not the intended meal, or that this individual is trying to lead you away from your family/posessions so
that they can find out what you have in a situation they are comfortable with.
Human beings can be great, and they can be evil. I love how religion, plays this Good vs Dark bullcrap. In itself that statement perpetuates the
negativity. It makes us feel as if we are superior to those we deem evil or dark. It gives us the right to disregard those individuals which in itself
is a trait of the dark, or evil side.
In order to steal, one has to own something and the concept of ownership is a falsity. If you are not currently consuming it, it's just an apple, or
an orange. IT's not yours, it does not identify itself with you nor is it a part of you. So In reality, animals as we are all is fair game. Society,
is an invention of man, as is ownership. So murder, assault, rape, torture, these are the only crimes that truly affect your only possession. Survival
of the fittest is the oldest rule of nature. If it's truly yours do everything in your power to keep it. Everything else is nature, get over it.
When society collapses, so will man. The majority of us will die off in a very short time. The stresses imparted on the body will drive the "
comfortable " insane, the unhealthy sick, the sick to death, and the truly strong may do their best to live with in their needs, and even this will
see many succumb to the collapse of their fragile world. In reality, those best suited for the collapse of society will be those nations we deem "
Third world." Their won't be a whole lot of change for them. They will continue working to find food, collect water, and keep their families safe.
All about perspective. We often think of the third world nations as horrible places to live, but is it any different than our society? Instead of
disease, famine, wildlife and crazy assholes trying to tell you how to live. We have Bills, Jobs, stress, the government, and each other telling us
how to live. Poisons toxins, diseases caused by our lifestyles. Crime on an entirely different level, fueled by religion, political stance, those who
have and those that don't. I would almost prefer to break away and work to sustain myself on my own, rather than have someone tell me what my work is
worth, give me less for doing more, and then telling me what I can and can't have still. It's much easier to accept what you can and can't have
based on what you can or can't find or do.
My Shelter(home) would only be limited by my materials, creativity and strength. I could live on a mountain, near a stream, or lake. As close or as
far from a reliable source of water or food as I like. My work would be finding food, water, protection not doing something for someone else, being
paid as little or as much as they like for my hard work, then giving a good portion to my government that claims to be providing these things for me,
I've gone on quite the rant here. I guess, my point is if need be stealing is a part of life. It's an instinct, if it's food no I don't see any
problem with it, and if it's something other than food than I believe the problem lies with society not the individual. What does he need an Ipod
for, why do I need an Ipod? If he is in fact selling it for food, No I don't see that much problem with it, and if he had asked I would have given
it to him.
Everyone deserves to eat.
I guess what I'm getting at here is stealing is acceptable in my eyes if the individual is in need of sustenance.
Murder is wrong, self defense is self defense, It's Natural as far as I'm concerned, but humans lie. It's what we do. Every single one of us seems
to do it.
