Please post this on FB so I can share the fuck out of it.
Unless you develop a taste for slower neighbors.
In any case, this is what a real survivalist looks like:
Odds are about 99.9% that you won't survive a year past a major collapse.
So you survive by making sure society doesn't collapse. You don't do that by playing dress up with an assault rifle you most likely couldn't actually afford. No, you do it by staying ahead of the curve. Which means science and organization, no matter how much that chaps someone's "rugged individualist" ass.
You notice that the same freaks running around with high-priced toys are ALSO the freaks whining about taxes, etc? They think a post-collapse world means not paying the bills. They're right. Bleached bones don't care about credit scores.
