In order to survive when society collapses; having a proper mindset is essential, to see you through the dangerous times ahead.  You will be dealing with the possibilities of dehydration, starvation, the elements, etc., but one of the biggest threats you will face is simply other people.  To people who have nothing; that old peanut butter and jelly sandwich you have, might look like a gourmet meal.  If a person is cold, wet, hungry and thirsty; they will do unimaginable things to take what you have prepared for your own survival, for themselves.  They will see you as nothing more than an inconvenient obstacle to obtaining what they want.

When law and order collapses you will by necessity become your own first line of self defense.  You will have to protect yourself by whatever means necessary; and you must be mentally prepared to do whatever must be done to protect those you love from predators, thugs, looters and other violent criminals.  Remember the following key points as they just might save your life.

  • Anyone can potentially be a threat as even good people can end up doing bad things when trying to survive.
  • Avoid trouble; but if trouble finds you, have the will and the skill and the capacity to defend yourself accordingly.
  • Don’t blindly follow dictates, rules, or other people to the slaughter; if it is counter intuitive to what you believe is in your best interests.
  • Train regularly with your defensive weapons until you are proficient with their use.  Plan ahead for which weapons are best for each particular survival scenario.  Above all; be vigilant, confident and do whatever you must to survive.

You can see 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at  They are really quite interesting if I do say so myself 🙂

    Reblogged this on and commented:
    Bravo. You are developing the mindset of a Street Cop. A bit of jaded cynicism will improve survivability. For the Record, people HAVE, been murdered, for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Only two groups of people understand the seriousness of this article in full. The cops, and the undertakers. This article is essentially a veteran cop’s lesson to rookies, in context, and everybody, needs to read it carefully, and learn. Wisdom of the Streets = Survival.
