You kind of make it sound like a game. You won't have any money. You won't be able to obtain anything unless you grow it. You would be screwed considering the times we are living in (unless you're already a farmer).



People would die, quick.



You really have no idea, do you?



You're a weird and creepy man.

if you read my other posts you will see that I went more into detail a little bit and actually have a plan of action, my plan would work if I don't have money, not exactly like I have a lot anyway.

I think (hope) I would die or kill myself before perpetrating violence on someone else or stealing another's property. But again, having a family to protect throws a wrench into those plans.

This actually depends on a lot of factors that we would not truly know until it actually happened. What time of year? (Summer/Winter) What time? (Day/Night) Where would you be when it actually happened? (ideal location already or on a trip/out of town situation) We all want to assume we would be "in the know" or in the "perfect spot to react" to the "Breaking News" of the SHTF, but the truth is more than likely you (& I) are not going to be in the perfect situation as the SHTF.

As for those claiming Power, Police, Fire Departments, Military, 75% still holding their job and being able to trade goods (in the short term)........ Your SHTF & mine are way off!

Bonus: Not being able to play an X-BOX or use twitter is NOT a calamity... NOT doing those will more than likely help you without a calamity anyway.....just saying :D

I'm an economic development consultant so I'd just keep cashing the checks. (just like the last four years). Sorry folks.
