During a time of TEOTWAWKI the chance for survival will depend on where you live, this picture on the right has many advantages I’m just assuming by looking at the picture that its a farming community which would have good water sources it would have good land to grow food on with also a small enough population that could be supported by that land and a lot of people in a small community like this probably have a garden also and are much more prepared for the long haul. Also the smaller the community the bigger chance that a large percentage of the population have firearms and are ready to protect themselves in the case of economic collapse. And also in a small community like this you know most of your neighbors and you have a good idea where they would stand in the event of collapse. You know if you could trust them and you know what there strengths are and what you could trade for.
In a bit bigger community a lot of those advantages of a small community might disappear, some might be strengthened. First off your going to have more people to contend with depending on the size. Your not going to know everyone, not even close, so your perhaps only going to be able to trust a few of your friends. Depending on the size of the town you may still have the ability and land to grow food, but that may require the cooperation of the town and it would be to a towns advantage to plan on that possibility beforehand. Also you may or many not have easy access to water. Most or a lot of towns where ever they get there water you will have pumps involved , some might be on some kind of pressure system that might continue to give you water even if the power goes out, a lot of pumps have backup systems but they’ll only last so long. For example I live in a community of about 1000 people the town receives its water from a big well that is pumped by a huge diesel generator, that will only last as long as the fuel lasts, there are rivers nearby but you would need to purify the water and also being a rural area a lot of folks here have there own wells. So some adjustments would need to be made before hand.
Now I’ll just touch on a little bit for a big city. The city below as my caption says is huge at least by my standards. The advantages in living there in a TEOTWAWKI situation is ZERO at least from my perspective, there are ways to survive in a big city because people have done it before but were in for a far different time then some of those past events, but there are things you can do. The biggest one I will touch on because I have mentioned it before is to get out if you can NOW. Other options I’ll cover in later posts
