Used to frequent Mr. Rawle's site, but have not read his book. May need to get a copy. Thanks for the advice.

FLTENNHUNTER 1, I've noticed that as well.

You hit on a very important point that all preppers must have at the top of their list of "preps" and that is a group or community of like-minded individuals for mutual aid and defense. And, getting in shape is extremely important. I'm not 28 anymore either and could stand to lose a few pounds but have always tried to stay in shape since my ball playing days ended. Also helps with hunting.

While I don't think a Mad Max scenario will develop, I do think based on what you point out that we will see the USA decline to a third world standard of living for most, a very, very small middle class of professionals providing services for a 0.1% profanely wealth oligarchy. Given the typical American, this will result in widespread civil disorder. If the Detroit police are telling people don't come into Detroit today, just imagine what most, if not all, cities will be like in this likely scenario. I don't think it will be limited to the cities, however.

The far flung US military will not be maintainable in this situation. With the collapse of the dollar, fuel prices alone will dictate the unwind of the empire. Will a president leave them overseas to fend for themselves? Depending on the circumstances, I can easily see a President Obama doing see. In any event, if they do return, there will be many discharged into a depression economy. Most will return to their families, many will have axes to grind and could end up in the employ of the various strong men that will arise. Same with the police. No way will civil order be capable of being maintained and, thus, when your community of likeminded individuals comes into play.

If you are Egyptian it did. If you are Syrian it did. If you are a Cypriot or Greek, it did. If you are Portugese, it's starting right now. If you are Japanese, it's right around the corner if "it" hasn't already happened to you.

You see, you are a man of a small, parochial mind unable or incapable of understanding that you live in a globally interconnected world. That student in Cairo, that factory worker in China, and that father in Lisbon are all part of your economy now.
