None of that looked good at all for those guys.

What it looks like when SHTF for the past few hundred years…

That place looks creepy, those blue ghosts did not look too happy.

Lord, sounds like Madison, Wisconsin last NIGHT, every night! We now call it Mad-raqwaukee!

Sand bags… and lots of them. While tires are great, filled with dirt… they burn. Of course, that can be good too. I read we are like 1 week away from being at each other’s throats and 3 weeks away from being cannibals. Easy to see this when the riots take place.
Having the ability to filter water is very important… more so than having a bunch of water supplies.

Yup. We currently have a scenario wherein the heroin lords and meth heads and the big pharma dealers have carte blanche to do anything they want to, right now. Body bags are cheap, fine with me. We have AG’s and DA’s who look the other way as they don’t have a choice politically. Those will be areas where MIL/LE step back and out.

This will be an interesting study as the US has more people nursed on the video games, purge, and other Hollywood w/o actual trigger or blood time. The people in the Middle East know the sounds of rounds, smell of gas, and have some sort of plans based in experience in last 50 years. I look forward to reading your book.

I think there are places in the world where what we would call SHTF is an every day way of life and many have never known anything different. Here is the US, most people who think they are hard are soft… and I would have to guess more than 80% of the population are worse than that.
The bubble will pop. It always does.
History keeps repeating itself, because most people do not bother to actually care, and they think “not in my life time”
So it will be interesting to see how it shakes out and when. I did think the Republican party could hold out for this last election, surprised they didn’t. So back to a sort of gridlock but with one side screaming in the streets they want it their way or else. Batshit crazy if you ask me. They used to talk about one world order in hushed voices… as if they spoke loudly it would give it power. Now they scream it from the roof tops and chant it on the TV and radio… meanwhile, we hardly even cover Venezuela… now there is some really good examples of what socialism looks like. And they all voted for it with open arms. That is a small glimpse of what would happen here in the US… we have a much larger population and a ever growing population dependent upon the system for every need. I keep looking at China, and yes… Russia… as to what they are up to. How are we interacting with them. Add in some pandemics, another economic crisis, the while place will erupt. Sad part, is that I think there are people and organizations that actually want that. So they can walk right in, offer a quick solution and take power. They just need the main population disarmed to do it.
