When lawlessness occurs; survival will become the primary goal.  Keep the following in mind should any survival situation involving civil unrest ever arise.  Lightly populated areas will be safer then more heavily populated areas.  You must do whatever is necessary to avoid the thugs and mobs who will loot, riot, commit robbery, rape or arson and eventually flee the cities in search of other targets of opportunity.

In the absence of law and order it will not take long for people to revert to their base, savage instincts; so show restraint but if the situation warrants be prepared to use force in a defensive manner.  If the power fails for an extended period of time and food and water distribution is disrupted, expect to see fires, looting, escalating violent crime and massive migrations out of the cities and into the suburbs and rural areas.  Looters will look for easily accessible areas and will bypass areas that can offer strong resistance.

When the SHTF; law and order is generally the first casualty.  Be prepared to defend yourself.  If you look and act like a victim you will in all probability become a victim.  Consider your home to be your well stocked survival outpost as the last thing you want is to ever become is a fleeing refugee.

Avoid being caught unprepared.  Prep properly when times are good so you will be prepared when times are bad.  Even when society is in complete anarchy people will organize into groups; some good and some bad.  The bad ones are likely to be aggressive and violent.  Be prepared and take responsibility for your own survival.

    Do not forget, Water.
    If you have a special location, perhaps you may want to watch this presentation about digging a water well.
    You can have all the firearms, ammo, canned chow, but you will not last, without water.

      Thanks for the comment and video. I’ve been giving some thought to digging a backup manual well pump for those times when the power is out.
