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.
If you haven’t read “The SHTF Art of War” yet, and want to know how the predictable, savage nature of your fellow human being will bloom when the lights to go out, fear not. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE.
