So I was reading an article about Dubai’s defaulting of loans, and the inevitable “it’s all over!!!” type comments. That reminded me of past readings about peak oil survivalists, which made me wonder about this:
What would have to happen to make you give up on civilization - to make you give up your job (search), turn all your assets into basic survival needs and guns, and take your family into the woods to hunker down (or whatever you’d do in such a situation)? What can you imagine leading to this point?
Now, when I say “give up on civilization,” it still has to be (reasonably) standing at the time you do this; it’s not “giving up” on it, IMO, if it’s already clearly collapsing.
