Bugging Out Internationally?  The World's Most Libertarian Countries

In theory, a prepper would be most comfortable in a more libertarian environment.  Less government participation in people’s lives implies less to go wrong in the case of some sort of societal collapse, and a more libertarian environment also suggests it would be easier for preppers to quietly prep as they see fit, free of interference or constraint. Here’s an article on Britain’s Daily Telegraph website that claims to be a guide to the world’s […]

Cities Will Collapse Even Sooner Than We Fear

We have written several times about how major population groupings (ie cities) will collapse ‘shortly’ after the essential elements of life cease to smoothly flow in to them as needed.  When there’s no water, no sewage, no food, no gas and no electricity, things will unavoidably get very nasty.

Can One Safely Assume A Rational Government Response to a Crisis?
