So you are suggesting communism is the solution to rebuilding everyone's wealth. It makes sense. After WWII the Russians were destroyed but in a very short few years became a super power equal to the United States.

I am actually suggesting something more complex than Communism or our current Capitalist economies. To establish a currency value based upon a balanced figure of production man-hours, production cost, consumability of product, neccesity of supply and rescource availability.

To a certain extent, Capitalism automatically provides a reasonable value to its items but pure Capitalism alone does not cover all situations of human need. Hence the requirement that capital value be under intelligent control rather than runaway process.

I am anticipating the establishment of a Technocratic Socialism rather than 19th century models.

Perhaps also the inclusion and calculation of a population happiness quotient is not a bad idea.

I think it is so funny people still think a few guns and week of food they can survive that event .

If it is a full blown world wide no power shipping stops transport stops no fuel withing days stores are cleaned out .

LOl and you really think you can survive ? it will be a crap shoot . 7 out of ten will be dieing over the next 20 years 3 billion the first year alone but unlike one poster who think they will just sit at home and slowly starve It will be hell on earth in 3 weeks as millions who are starving will kill or do anything for food so you better have lots of guns and a army to help .

BTW you think because you live ten miles out of town that makes you safe ?? really people are not so stupid that they dont even know were food comes from farms will be prime targets food or not ( heck got a horse farm except to be attacked all they know is it looks like a farm .

As a individual with survival training even at 51 I could survive out in the swamps no problem ( heck being in Florida I would not lose a ounce gators snakes coons armadillos you really have to work hard to starve in swamps and every one else would be hitting towns city's and farms .

But my son his women and 3 kids ? no way Not unless they did exactly what I tell them exactly when i tell them .
Like that would ever happen lol .

Go on get your guns go up against millions wile the meek inherent the earth .

The bible is spot on that one meek ( not fight ) wile the rest kill each other off then just walk out and its yours .
you cant fight a force of nature .

Mental health is no laughing matter.

It's not too hard to spot when you see it, the best way to deal with someone who is in that oblique state of mind is to be as gentle as possible. I think the water and food chain is a big contributor to why so many break ups are happening right now especially and why people aren't in their right state of minds. The guy at work just went crazy a few days ago and ditched his gf of 2 years because he couldn't be sane anymore, he wanted to lose it. Man, this world is not the world I remember at all.

And by the way, trying to survive a nuclear blast would be the same as trying to brush your teeth while hand gliding. It's useless. The world is going crazy right now, and after the 23rd, it might get even worse.

My plan for mental health of those around me are as follows.

#1. Give each person a sole responsibility that they are in full control of. :::: This gives an entire group the feeling of being in charge not of other people, but of the necesities for life.
Example: Wife is in charge of the fire and packed supplies.
Oldest child responsible to keep a constant supply of water, including boiling drinking water, hygenic
water, cleaning water, ect.
Family friend might be responsible for keeping a constant charge on batteries by limiting the use to
essential need, as well as maintainingg any generators fuel supplies, solar panels, ect.

#2. Communication. Don't focus on solely surviving an event, but speak on an emotional level. Ask people what they are thinking, how they are doing with the current situation, pay close attention to wants that are easily met.

#3. Activities. Create activities from your surroundings instead of having board games take up space in your travel pack. Checkers can be made easily using rocks for one player and pieces of wood for the other. Jump rope competition, swimming, fishing, and any creative activities like basket weaving.

#4. Return to normalcy. Think about the creature comforts we have in our home. Recreate some of these comforts. Having an outhouse may not be the life of luxury, but it provides a private area to do your business without the need to bury your excrement every time.

#5. Expand your shelter. Nothing gives hope and a sense of pride in oneselves accomplishments than something you can physically see that benefits your group as a whole.

6#. Lastly. Push everyone to Thrive in their environment. Keep everyone invigorated with praise on their hard work. Find solutions to problems instead of piling on complaints.

You may want to go into hiding for the first couple of weeks when people realize the power is not coming back on, it will be a bloodbath.

Hopefully then there will be some likeminded people left to form a community with.

Some of the better additions to my kit were solar powered battery chargers with multiple type cross charging capability. If you have AA batteries and need a nine volt, you can use the AA's to charge the nine volt directly even if you do not have a solar powered nine volt charger and so on.

Another must have is a good atmospheric water scavenger and a good filter for standing water of unknown condition. We can do without a lot of things, but water isn't one of them. Dehydration and exposure are probably the first concerns. Food is a close second.
