If society crumbles due to economic, political, or social reasons, you can expect violent crime, looting, rape, assault, murder, etc., to reach unprecedented levels never before seen in modern times.  Police will be unable or unwilling to respond to cries for help as they will be looking to protect there own families. In short you are on your own and you will need to be prepared accordingly to deal with this type of scenario.

If law and order breaks down you must be sufficiently armed with the will and the skill to do what you can to protect yourself and your family.  Do not go looking for trouble; but if trouble finds you there may not be anyone else available to assist you in many circumstances.  

Two main types of threats you might face are career criminals who use the societal collapse as just another excuse to commit violent crimes and formerly good people who have been driven to do bad things based on circumstances; meaning they didn’t prepare and now they are trying to take food, water and other supplies from those who did prepare.

If you don’t own firerams or have access to them and you don’t know how to use them efficiently and properly; you will find yourself at a distinct disadvantage.  You should familiarize yourself with firearms and the proper methods of loading, unloading, target acquisition, maintenance, and which firearms, gauges, and calibers are best for which situations.  Be prepared because when all is said and done you are ultimately responsible for your own safety and security.

Disasters can generally be broken down into four major affected area categories.  These are local, regional, national, and global.  Below are some examples with scenario based timeframes ranging from least severe to most severe. 

  • Local – Duration of less than 5 days and is limited to a local area.  There would be limited disruptions to food, water, fuel and power but the government and the economy remains intact.
  • Regional – Duration of 14 days affecting an entire region.   There would be limited disruptions to food, water, fuel, power, but the government and the economy remains intact.  There would be moderate increases in crime and looting.
  • National – Duration of 60 days and affects the entire country.  There would be no food or water available for sale and fuel and power would also not be available.  There would be limited disruptions to government and the economy and violent crime and looting would escalate dramatically.
  • Global – Duration of greater than 60 days and affects the entire world.  There would be no food or water available for sale and fuel and power would also not be available. Governments and financial institutions would collapse and violent crime and looting would be rampant and increase to unprecedented levels.  

Are you prepared with adequate supplies and skills to survive and defend yourself should one of these affected area scenarios occur?  If not ask yourself why not?  If so then you are well on your way to being prepared to handle a number of different survival scenarios.

Just because the zombies are coming isn’t a reason not to be fashionable 🙂

Here are a few things that people should know but might not; as the mainstream media either won’t cover them or alters the storyline so the truth won’t be known.

  • Laws and mandates have been and are being passed in the United States that directly contradict what is allowed under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
  • The federal reserve is not a government agency or organization; it is a privately held bank.
  • Our currency is not backed by gold or silver but is instead created at will and then loaned out for interest which makes it a currency based on debt rather than any kind of tangible value.
  • When the federal government borrows money it uses American citizen’s as collateral in the form of projected revenues which can be collected from each citizen in the form of taxation.
  • Your social security number and birth certificates are openly traded on the stock market.
  • Schools condition rather than educate in many instances.
  • Entertainment and related media encourages people to be consumers and reminds us that life is not fulfilling unless you acquire things and keep up with the Hollywood elite.
  • Politics and policies are not put into effect to help the average individual but are put into place as control mechanisms instead.

If you find yourself facing a disaster scenario; here are some questions you should ask yourself in an effort to formulate the best responses to the situation.

  • Am I okay and is my family okay?
  • What actually happened?
  • Is it safe to stay where I am or do I need to leave the premises now?
  • If I leave the premises what supplies can I take with me and what is my destination?
  • If I leave how far away is my destination and can I cover that distance?
  • What weapons do I have available for self defense?
  • What time of the year is it and do I have the proper clothing to protect myself against the seasonal elements?
  • Can I expect help in a reasonably short period of time or will no help be coming?
  • Do I have water, food, first aid gear, clothing, medicines, weapons, ammo, etc., available to me?
  • Am I physically, mentally and emotionally ready to deal with the situation?

In a post apocalyptic environment when law and order is non existant and it seems as though it is everyone for themselves; it is important to know good, effective, self defense shooting techniques if attacked.  The following is a recommended method.

  1. Shoot until the threats have been neutralized.
  2. Reload.
  3. Move from cover position to cover position.  Remember cover is anything that can stop an incoming bullet.
  4. Scan to see what other dangers are around you.
  5. Get help from other members of your survival group.
  6. Verify your targets are incapacitated.  If not; rectify that situation.
  7. Self assess.  Make sure you have not been hit or wounded in any way.
  8. Scan your surroundings again.
  9. Wait a reasonable amount of time before moving out.  Don’t just assume that there aren’t more of the enemy out there.  Move out using cover and concealment and minimize your target profile.

In case you weren’t aware.  Your U.S. Passport obtained from October 2006 forward contains an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Chip) which contains a passport holders personal identification data. Data includes name, date of birth, nationality, gender, place of birth, as well as a digitized photo of that person.  The chip’s data will match the paper portion data of the passport. The RFID chip allows passports to be scanned remotely and can present safety and privacy violations.  Other issues include remote hacking of data, whether other unspecified information is also contained within, and how tightly your movements can be tracked when the passport is carried about as part of a person’s activities.

Check out my book series American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution as well as the four other books in that series which can be seen on the left side of my blog page; and are available at Amazon.com.  They are interesting fictional reading and provide a clear indication of what can happen if a government spins out of control.
