S.H.T.F. Road Rage!

traffic-jam

In my book I describe the places that an Apocalyptic Warlord will target to plunder and rape.

One of those places will be the 100 mile long traffic jams.

In recent history, millions have fled their homes to avoid the impending doom of a hurricane.  People fleeing the cities have been caught up and stranded for days in traffic jams over 100 miles long.

There aren’t enough cops to protect the cities let alone all the highways and back roads.

In the havoc and desperation of masses of people fleeing the cities during a societal collapse, the city streets and interstates will be choked to a standstill.  These long, unprotected, stretches of cash carrying men, women, and children fleeing their homes with their most valuable possessions will be easy pickings for the criminally minded.

Bands of organized marauders and cutthroats will appear once they realize that there will be absolutely no consequences for their actions. They won’t miss a step in taking advantage of an opportunity like this.  They already live in this criminally minded paradigm. They will act fast and have a head start.

Punks, Dickweeds and Anarchists.

hooligans2

One of my fears during any disaster are the people who deliberately make a bad situation worse.
It doesn’t matter what manner of disaster has caused a societal collapse. A big danger during the collapse will be gangs of people with nothing to lose and looking to make a bad thing worse.
In recent history, we’ve witnessed people within crowds of demonstrators; instigate violence to insight and perpetuate more violence within the crowd.
Sometime these anarchists are plants from outside groups who want to spark a bigger demonstration or distraction.  Sometimes they are plants from the group being demonstrated against to cause the need for a greater use of force from authorities against the demonstrators.
I realized that there’s no shortage of people that have a feeling of bitterness towards authority and the civilized world.
My guess is that there are hundreds of thousands of people who are disgruntled with their station in life.  People hiding in plain sight, waiting and hoping for a Zombie Apocalypse to occur in the country.  Only then to rise up with their kill list and exact their vengeance upon those they believe to have wronged them.

Bunker Busting

Bunker Busting

I think doomsday bunkers are a bad idea.
A byproduct of my law enforcement and counter terrorism background is that I look at things from a “Bad Guy” perspective. It’s a mistake to think that all criminals are dumb.
Here’s my reasoning on why I think putting an underground bunker in your backyard is not a good idea.
When it comes to underground bunkers, you might be able to lie to your neighbors about why you’re digging a giant hole in your back yard. However, hiding the fact you’re putting a very large,  re-enforced steel, doomsday bunker in that hole is another matter. People are naturally inquisitive. A giant steel bomb shelter being lowered into the ground in your back yard is sure to draw attention.
Being realistic about the savage nature of our species, I’m fully aware of how every living creature reacts when threatened with dying.  It will do whatever it takes to stay alive.
Maybe I’m alone in thinking this way. But if my family is starving to death during an apocalyptic event and I know my neighbor has sealed himself underground in a tin can full of food and water, I’m going to get a backhoe and dig him out.
There is even an easier way to get the occupants of an underground bunker to come out. The weakness of every doomsday bunker is the fresh air intake. All a person who wants you out of that bunker has to do is find that air intake and plug it. The people inside the bunker will have only 2 choices. Die or come out.
You’re going to want to make sure you take the necessary precautions if you are trying to get survivalists out of their bunker. It’s highly probable that they will come out of their bunker in an agitated state and armed.

New Countries

american shatter

I would caution those who wish for another civil war in America.

If the Federal Government ever loses its control during a societal collapse, a civil war with multiple factions will ensue.  These diametrically opposed, uncompromising factions will struggle to gain control and impose their idea of how to rebuild.

In this scenario, once America collapses, it won’t be coming back to its former self.  What will emerge will be new countries with new borders.  When Rome collapsed it re-emerged as France, Spain and Italy.  Germany and England were also once a part of the Roman Empire.  The fall of Rome was also followed by a little thing called “The Dark Ages” which lasted for a few hundred years.

History shows that food shortages and disease immediately follow every societal collapse or civil war.

“The slaves of today will become the tyrants of tomorrow–the proletariat overthrows the hegemon to become the hegemon itself, only to be eventually overthrown by a proto-hegemon that will in turn lose its position. It is this dizzying cycle that keeps humanity chasing the tail it lost millennia ago”

A Nation of Procrastinators.

Afire

I wrote my book “The S.H.T.F. Art of War” specifically for procrastinators. I’ve worked to keep the information stream lined and right to the point. I created the book to be a short, immediate action type of work that could be read in one sitting.

I did this because most of us are severe procrastinators. Most of us wait until the last minute to do anything.

Even with advanced warning of an impending winter storm or hurricane, the TV News routinely shows people running, last minute to the stores for basic supplies. Humans for the most part, are reactionary creatures and store shelves don’t hold enough supplies for everyone.

In the face of a worst case disaster, there will still be people who wait until the last minute to be proactive in their own survival.

In the event of a societal collapse, I believe this same procrastination phenomenon will happen when people need knowledge on security and warfare. When your life suddenly depends on that knowledge, you’re going to want it in a big damn hurry. I fear in most cases it will be too late for too many.

Security is like air. You never think about it until you don’t have it any more.

Unmanned Drones.

Drones
I have a whole chapter dedicating to scavenging on the remains of a collapsed society in my book “The S.H.T.F. Art of War.”

Here’s something to keep in mind while you are out on one of your scavenging excursions. The United States government currently uses very sophisticated unmanned drones to survey landscapes and keep an infrared eye on borders, war zones, enemies of the state and disaster areas. Knowledge is power. In a grid down, societal collapsed world, you can be sure that whatever is left of a government will still want to know what’s going on out in the apocalyptic landscape.

A “How to Manual” for an Apocalyptic Criminal Warlord?

A How to Manual for an Apocalyptic Criminal Warlord?

I’ve had critics accuse me of writing a “How to Manual” for the bad guys. I simply disagree. The bad guys already know the information I’ve put into my book and simply don’t need my book.

The criminal element already lives in a criminal mindset in their daily lives. They look for the strengths and weaknesses of potential targets and their enemies on a daily basis.

They spend their entire waking hours looking for ways to take advantage of the system and the “unaware” people in it.

Crime

Criminals are predators. They are already wide awake and keenly aware of their surroundings.

The regular, 9 to 5, Monday through Friday, couch potato, Joe and Jane six-pack is not.

The first chapter in my book is dedicated to how bands of organized marauders and cutthroats will appear once they realize that there will be absolutely no consequences for their actions.

They won’t miss a step in taking advantage of an opportunity like a societal collapse. It will be a “dream come true” for them. They already live in this criminally minded paradigm. They will act fast on this opportunity and have an incredible head start.

It’s the regular “civilian” who doesn’t have a clue to what will happen once a societal collapse begins.

Those “civilians” are the ones who’ll need my book.

Regular, uninformed people will be in a state of denial if the world is upside down the day after tomorrow.

In fact they’ll be in paralyzing shock before they go through the 5 stages of grief. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance.

At this very moment, there are predators living among us who know no depths to their depravity. People who cannot wait for a national calamity to strike so they can roam freely and be the monster they were born to be.

Women will have the most to fear in a Societal Collapse.

Women will have the most to fear in a Societal Collapse.

The hard truth of our species is that for centuries, mankind has found it much easier to ruthlessly use savage force to take what he wants rather than work for it. You can just take one look at the history of mankind to see countless examples of one tribe attacking another to take their women, weapons, land, and food. The “HAVE NOTS” always, eventually rise up and raid the “HAVES” and take their stuff. Usually killing all the males and taking the women as slaves.

In the worst case scenario of a total societal collapse, mankind will revert back to tribal ways for immediate survival. In the event of a complete societal collapse, where goods and services have stopped flowing throughout the country, there will be no 911. No Law Enforcement or Emergency services to come to your aid.

The constitution won’t matter. They’ll be no civil liberties, bill of rights or Geneva Convention to protect your, human rights. I know the vast majority of people believe they have inalienable rights that cannot be taken away. The hard truth is this; even if you believe that your rights are given by a creator of the universe.  It is man that can change them or take them away altogether.

Christ_Giving_His_Blessing

People can and will still believe that a supreme being gave them those inalienable rights. However, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s the man or men in power that allow you to exercise those rights. A quick fact check of all the wars, ethnic cleansing and sexual slavery that’s been done throughout mankind’s bloody history proves this point. For whatever reason, a supreme being hasn’t seen a need to jump in and stop these atrocities yet.

Without a governmental structure to protect and enforce the equal rights of the people, those rights can be stripped away and new ones put in place by a new power. It’s highly probable, that in the immediate wake of a societal collapse, without the rule of law, women could lose their “equal rights” that they enjoy today and once again become property.

Woman-Blue-Bra

I’m not saying all men will have this view. However, they’ll be no shortage of men who would like to take women’s rights back a few hundred years or more.
