Some of you may have already seen this article a while back, but I was sorting through some saved links and figured it worth sharing for those who haven't seen it. It's an interview with someone who survived a collapse of society in Bosnia.

Quote:
Our city was blockaded by the army; and for one year, life in the city turned into total crap. We had no army, no police. We only had armed groups; those armed protected their homes and families.
When it all started, some of us were better prepared. But most of the neighbors’ families had enough food only for a few days. Some had pistols; a few had AK-47s or shotguns.


Continued below.

A very good read!

How would many of us fare in such a situation?

Although I expected the insistence about guns, I didn't expect the insistence that despite more numbers being more mouths to feed, he reckons the only reason his lot got through it was because they had a lot of people in his family already together.

I also like the bit where he explains money, although they bought with it and also sold with it, was crap in value. A disposable lighter was worth much more to people who looked to trade.

The interesting bit, is the bit that would happen here. If SHTF, all th registered legal gun owners would have to say goodbye to their possessions whilst criminals stay unaffected - thereby becoming the rgeater force to be reckoned with and have the most control.

Scary really.

If it happened suddenly wouldn't the powers that be have more pressing matters?.......maybe protecting their own families for example.
