Or dying. I'm not out to prove them wrong as in them surviving a few additional weeks on poverty rations. My question is, if all goes to shit, what's the incentive to survive at all? To vegetate a few additional months or years?

You should extend this to say that if you live in areas which are subject to tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, or blizzards, you should do some preparations.

Luckily I live in an area where none of these problems are an issue.

Better be quiet about that or EVERYBODY will be moving there...

You're assuming an unsurvivable event - which is far less likely than a survivable one.

Most survivalist types prepare for the events that are recoverable from......

Preppers should read Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.

That's only good if you're planning on moving.

I can't get excited about paying higher property taxes.,

Survivable as in what? As in eating canned noodles for the rest of your sorry existence?

You put the bar pretty high with your thread title of the shit hitting the fan. That's not assuming a flood or an earthquake or some other event that will blow over within a few days or weeks, that's obviously assuming something bigger.

If there's no society left, everyone's left to their own devices. Some maybe a bit later than others. If that's a desirable prospect, one that warrants hording like a squirrel, be my guest. It's not my idea of a desirable life.

Not really. I don't even know how to make a damned fire. No

But if shit does hit the fan, is humanity really worth preserving? I'm not sure. It would mean we haven't been doing enough to prevent conflict in the first place, so in that sense, we kind of get what we deserve. However, there are those who don't deserve it, such as children getting caught in the crossfire.

I'm less than 20 miles from downtown Philadelphia. If there is a nuclear war, I'm good because I'll be dead.
