Default Strength In Numbers

A good point is made by this video. Numbers do count. Prepping alone will not answer all contingencies. Numbers. And more numbers. That's preparation.

Agreed..I have stated before that the community survives not the loner.

Numbers can also work against you.

Are you Chinese and have a lot of friends and family in China? If it ever get's so bad in the world where we have to band together in regional groups for survival your best bet will be to find a group locally and make yourself as useful as possible. In this type of scenario the US will likely be better off than most of the rest of the planet...and unless you can blend in, make friends and adapt to another culture completely, you'd best stick to what is close by and what you know.

Why? They'll all be coming here.

LOL! That's a funny but shameful possibility. Although they wouldn't last long against fed-up Americans, hungry, homeless, unemployed, angry, and willing to die for whatever last vestige of dignity and patriotism they have left.

I watched this guy and have been thinking on what he's saying. I think he's letting his intentions be known. Sounds to me like he plans to clean up after the gangs and prey on what he feels are weak isolated people. Kinda like a scavenger. There's allot of truth in what he said but behind that I felt like he telling those that have prepared that he's all about taking your stuff away from you, much like we see today with those that work and those that don't.

Agreed you have to have a group or tight knit community. Last man standing doesnt work

The only problem I see with a group is the "power" thing. Once the SHTF and you have one leader, someone else will want the power!!!! Even if it is a tight knit group, there will be a bad decision which will get people thinking. You have to remember that we are human with minds that are always thinking!!
