I think it all depends on the nature of S That Hits the F. If there is a further economic collapse, I would see more government control of the economy, the government printing money, instituting wage and price controls, and rationing of various supplies. I'm thinking we'd see economic controls similar to those exercised during World War II and public works programs similar to those enacted during the great depression.

If something brought down the national government, I would see state, local governments, and even neighborhood associations picking up the slack, organizing people, printing their own money, etc. I see individuals surviving by using camping, gardening, and hunting as needed. The fundamentals that make America a great country are in the constitution and will live on as a thread in whatever comes next. I don't see a disaster suddenly transforming everyone into murderers, robbers, and zombies.

Unless a nuclear exchange or a sudden natural disaster renders my home dangerous and vehicles inoperable, I don't see myself suddenly getting a yen to hike the Appalachian trail with a pocket knife and a can of beef jerky. That being said, I do see being prepared to evacuate with a couple of weeks of supplies or being able to shelter in place for a few weeks or even being prepared to live like a third world poor subsistence farmer. However, I think people can be resilient as a community and get through an awful lot.

Interested me in that someone was giving some thought to how things might be AFTER "the day".
Another good one is Patriots, the story of a band of survivalist making thier way after a major collapse of the US, followed by UN nations trying to "claim our debt" with our land and install a socialist Gov't. Great book. can also be found at amazon.

Yes that is what I fear most. I doubt many people will try to physically fight to keep them. Yes we have great organizations such as the NRA, but if that doesn't work then they will try to take our weapons by force. I for one will start shooting when they come knocking at the door. That is what our ancestors did and it worked, and I hope that others will have the sense to organize and shoot along with me. Society has changed too much as for the fact that people think they can rely on the court system and government to protect us. My grandpa always tells me there will be a new revolution in my lifetime. And it is one of our constitutional rights for men to form a well-armed militia to overthrow a corrupt tyrannical government that is out to take our freedoms and rights as well as tax the hell out of everything that exists. It is happening right now, and I aint that good at politics or debating because I get too angry, but I am good at wielding any type of firearm. I just hope that our own military is on the side of the people in that situation, not on the government's side.
