What would you do to survive?

El Borak has a recent post on survivalism and America's lack of preparedness. More specifically, he discusses how very ill-prepared most Americans are for most anything, let alone a "catastrophic" disaster.

If something chaotic occurs, be it a natural disaster, a war, a famine, a plague, zombies, whatever, the very last place you want to be is in the city where you're trapped. As someone who currently lives in the city (but is getting ready to move), I can tell you that my family would have no choice but to "hunker down" if a disaster struck. My home is surrounded by two main roads that are jam packed during rush hour and there is no chance I'd be able to flee if the rest of my community decided to get the hell out of Dodge.

If you can, live in the country. Live in a small town. Live in a place where people understand how to prepare, how to hunt, how to grow food, and how to leave their neighbors the hell alone. People in the city are the ones you have to worry about since not only do most of them not carry cash, weapons, or gold, but most of them have no idea what to do when they can't get their next meal at Starbucks.
