I recently read a great article that said "So the S has H T F. How do you know really know though? Is it a local, regional, national or worldwide event?" What happens if you experience a Carrington Event. How do you know that its not just a local thing and that by tomorrow you will be sitting on your front porch sipping mint juleps? In the same way, how do you know that it is not a life changing, true SHTF end of the world scenario that has jumped out of the pages of fiction and landed right on your head?
That really got me thinking. Right now we are so used to easy, cheap and verifiable information. In less than a minute, I can find out who a girl that I dated out of college is married to, how many kids they have and where they live. I can find out what the lead drummer for Led Zepplin likes to eat and how he likes it prepared. I can find out what our current national debt is and verify it through several sources.
However, in a true TEOTWAWKI event, we will not have this type of information. We will be going off of word of mouth, hearsay, rumors etc. Information will not be quick, it will not be easy, it probably will be a mix of some truth and some fiction and it will not be easily verified, if able to be verified at all.
SO WHAT ARE WE DO TO?
If you came here for answers, you are SOL, but over the next few weeks/months, I will be digging up some way to help combat this type of information vacuum and come to some good solid information.
Of course I always welcome comments, so if you have some information to help other folks out, please feel free to share.
