Bob, be it TEOTWAWKI or WTSHTF, either is going to mean a lot of loss of
lives and a complete change in how folks live. The nanny state will die, as
it should. Those who are prepared and can adjust to the changing times will
survive, those who aren't prepared and can't OR won't adjust to the changing
times, will not survive. The world has become one big pyramid scheme and
pyramid schemes don't work for long.
