When the SHTF, it’s too late to get ready. You have to be prepared now. But the question is: are you really ready, and, if not, what can you do now to get ready?
A good first step is to know and enact these six laws of survival. These laws are key for you know when an emergency situation occurs. NaturalNews.com lists these laws as:
- “Wherever that crowd is running, do not join them.” – If you see a crowd doing certain things or moving in a certain direction, go the opposite direction. This is true in all kinds of life situations from business to where to find a good candidate for a spouse to survival. Remember, in pretty much every situation, the majority is wrong. They don’t know it, and, in some areas, we are all wrong. But remember this truism. The majority does the easy thing, and the easy thing will often be the thing that gets you captured and controlled or killed.
- “You have to have a place (and places) to go.” – Where will you go where other people are not flocking? Do you have multiple options? Think outside of the box: Don’t just have a camper at the local campground set up, but have a self-sufficient cabin off grid away from the general public. Have friends and family, preferably some place out of range of the commotion, that you can visit, possibly for longer periods of time. Start thinking about this now.
- “You will be leaving your home, permanently or for a long time.” – Have the supplies and equipment on hand that you will need for a long-term existence away from your current home. It could be a while. You don’t want to be caught there wishing that you had that one item that you haven’t already stashed away or packed.
- “In survival, there is no silver medal: ‘second place’ means death.” – In some ways the old line about “Second place is just the first place loser” is true. If you don’t handle this well enough, you won’t have to worry about the impact. You won’t be alive to regret the decisions (or lack of decisions). Get it together now.
- “You must stay out and survive by any and all means necessary.” – This is an unpleasant rule that many people won’t like. And believe us when we say that we hope you never have to deal with people who leave you no choice if you want to keep you and your family alive (and that is the only time that we would ever suggest using potentially lethal force. We do not advocate murder). What you need to realize, though, is that, in life, the willingness to do whatever is necessary is often what is needed, and rarely will you ever need to do that horrible thing that you desperately do not want to do (thank God).
- “Do not tip your hand or reveal your plans to anyone.” – Unfortunately, there are those who may be your friends now but won’t be your friend in an emergency because you have what they need to survive. It’s unfortunate, but it is true. Even worse, while they may be your friend, they may unintentionally tip off someone who is decidedly serving their own interests, even if that comes at your expense. Don’t tell anyone. Just don’t.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll keep saying it: Think about it now, and get ready now because, when it hits, it will be too late.
