So, when you sit behind your computer screen, planning your great survival, of heading for the hills donning your hand made tin-hat and protecting your family at all costs, I wish you the best of luck. But when S really does HTF, will any amount of prep prepare you? Sure, your odds may be slightly improved and if it does give you that chance but could the people above have done anything to prepare?...
DO NOT turn your back on fellow human beings. That starving person you murder may have been the doctor that may be able to save your life further down the line. We need to work together... as they say, strength is in numbers.
The world is full of mini Armageddons and it seems that some of the questions asked in this forum are ignorant of that fact.
The survivors are the ones that have pulled together, shared what little they have and offered their skills to those in an even less fortunate position.
There are no survivors holed up in basements with their families and plentiful food waiting for the dust to settle.
Save your time, energy and your money and focus on what's really important. Today. Because IF 'SHTF' then there is nothing that you can do but hope for the best.
You will not be able to stay in your comfy, well stocked house.
People turn into animals when they can't get what they need, and you who prepared for the worst, will be the ones who are targeted by those who did not prepare, and that is by far the majority of people on this rock.

Prepping would suit best for an economic crash.
Isn't that the most likely scenario?
Don't underestimate the determination of hungry people, and the sheer number of which there will be.
