Let me be frank and say either way, staying in house or being outside it when the extreme violence is present in a crowded city, you are already dead. I read on these pages about stockpiling food and weapons and it is all funny and there is a lack of reasoning and logic in all these but mostly lack of knowledge of the scale of it that is the result of those prior two. These does not mean that you do not prepare as much as you can and with what you have at hand, and hope for the best but in most cases it ends the worst.
Without a community that has some security you re not going to last for long, or at least a team because only food and water will not provide security and vice versa. Owning a weapon does not mean much if you do not have skill that requiers time and effort and money, likewise alone without others that also have training and tactics you re not in a good position to be in. Even with all that chances are that you re not going to make it because that is life, and even after all that there is worse to come with the end result.....Maybe it is a time to accept that is the case. Frankly I do not see the point of living for long in such a world, it is bad already or frankly it was whole my 32 years here so the death is sometimes looked as a kind of salvation.
To be honest, it was my opinion to. Dying would be a kind of salvation. However, quite a few people on the forum seem optimistic or kind of skirt the subject, hence why I asked the question. But you're absolutely right about stockpiling and weapon and the same thoughts crossed my mind. In times of war, the main way people managed to survive is by either leaving the country or part of country affected by war or simply by waiting for the war to stop. Either options is closed to us. The violence will not stop until there's nothing left. So, yeah. Death one way or the other.
Also, one of my thought was what's the point of living in a destroyed world? Like what's enjoyable about that?
