You seem to think because you claimed something as yours its actually yours, and indeffinitely so? Well its not, you might have been the one who inherited the land, perhaps even bought it, only because you had the opportunity before someone else. Its not yours to be honest, its everyones, you just claimed it.
I cant prep, yet. Im young-ish, I dont own a house, I dont own land, dont own guns, I know how to grow food, build stuff, etc, but how exactly do you suggest I do this in a rented house with a 10x10 foot court??
Sorry to say this, but people claiming every single bit of land as their own are what caused this and imo are what will possibly cause a collapse, its either "know your limits, the other 7billion people need some too" or society/government needs to provide what people need. Im sadly currently one who needs what others provide, I dont have a choice.
No, its not right to take from others, but its not right to take a forest for yourself and then expect when lawlessness is back, everyone is going to continue respecting that piece of paper with your name on it

If and when The SHTF It's every man/woman for themselves...if it means My families and my own survival depends on Stealing someone else's stuff then so be it.....
In fact, if someone does steal your stuff then it's your own stupid fault for not being one step ahead of the game...you never prepped for thievery.???.....Stupid, Stupid, Stupid..
Like cutting yourself deep, Miles from nowhere.....you made a mistake that could so easily have been avoided now you're gonna pay....Big Time.
Maybe the question is, how far do you go to get your stuff back....remember, your own life could be at stake here....
Gotta laugh really.
You spend part of your life preparing for when the SHTF and you go and leave the door unlocked....something ironic about that scenario..

If structured society collapses, after 90 days, the survivors will be left -- meaning those somewhat capable of attempting true survival. Personally, I plan to stay hunkered for those first 90 days which I also think will be the most violent and chaotic.
