In any survival situation you will find that some people will behave irrationally and may try to take advantage of chaotic situations.  Expect these people to commit criminal acts; so be prepared to defend yourself and your family.  All of these people will want something from you and many of them will do nothing to prepare; but will still feel they are owed something.  Just because a disaster has ocurred does not mean the attitude of these people will change.

Do not allow strangers to latch onto you.  They can prove to be very dangerous.  Your goal is to prepare to ensure your family’s survival; not the survival of every stranger that passes by.  You must be prepared to defend yourself and your family from those who would try and harm you and steal your food, water, guns, ammo and other survival supplies.  If strangers had the chance to prepare and chose not to, it is not your responsibility to now provide for them.

Your survival skills and your supplies will not be able to save everyone but they can help save the people who matter to you the most.  You must learn to trust your instincts and stay alert, avoid becoming predictable, be observant, familiarize yourself with your surroundings, learn to move quietly in all environments and avoid large groups of people.  In any survival situation your attitude is everything.  Be proficient with using your survival gear and with applying your survival skills and your chances of coming out alive increase dramatically.

    Beware: Even those who behave rationally under normal conditions are apt to fall apart mentally if/when stressed beyond the Norm of their comfort zones. Most people also train with stress being missing or unexpected because in their belief, it is how, they, train, as opposed to improving skills in time, handling proficiency, and considerations towards multiple adversary, and reaching beyond their comfort zone, which when practiced, vastly improves a very perishable set of skills. Never allow any stranger to enter closer to you than a full arm length, and always be suspicious of anyone approaching your camp without announcing themselves first, at a distance. Then continue to be suspicious of motives and confidence games. Always think of how, if things went wrong, you would neutralize a given threat to yourself, and your family.

      I appreciate the reblog and the additional comments. Anyone who doesn’t think that the average man or woman won’t hesitate to do things in a SHTF situation that they would not ordinarily do, even if it means hurting someone else in the process, isn’t looking at a disaster scenario in the proper perspective.

        How true. During the siege on Stalingrad, nobody ever expected they would have to resort to cannibalism, but it happened. An uncle of mine married a Korean woman that was orphaned after witnessing her mother and sisters brutally raped, tortured for pleasure by North Korean troops, then murdered. Refugees kept her safe. They had to consume human corpses to stay alive, and she cried when relating that even she, was spoken about, as food for the others. Think about that.

        That certainly puts things in perspective. Some human beings can do some truly terrible things and find reasons to justify it no matter how evil or immoral those acts might be.
