Hello, my friend and welcome back! We often refer to the unprepared as the walking dead because they will keep walking and looking for food until they simply drop dead. Defending yourself will be really hard because many will turn into something far worse. Grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
Yes, it’s true, many of the unprepared will simply start walking and looking for food until the just fall dead from starvation but many more will resort to killing and eating anything they can find…even YOU! The simple fact is that quite a few of them will simply resort to Cannibalism to survive.
It’s not that far of a stretch for some people, after all, Tribes in Africa have done it for centuries and it has even been reported many times here in the US. Humans are often referred to as “Long Pigs” by cannibals and I can only imagine that it refers to their taste. I can honestly say that I would much rather die than to resort to Cannibalism, but others are not so picky.
These people will use many methods to trap their victims in a post-SHTF world. Perhaps they will lure them in with offers of fresh cooked meat? A starving man will seldom ask what kind of where it comes from. The simple smell of meat cooking over an open fire will be enough to attract most people.
This however, will not be the only way. Beware of people offering to take care of your children, or taking in orphans. These will be signs of people looking for a meal and they won’t care who it is. These people will most often gather in large groups and hunt like a group of rabid dogs looking to make a kill. You need to think about this and beware especially if you are traveling into areas you’re not familiar with. As bad as they are, they are only one of the threats posed by the unprepared people when SHTF hits.
What you must remember is that most of these people have no idea how to actually hunt for food. This will lead to the demise of many of them, as they take to the forest with their guns. Casualties like this are often referred to as “Friendly Fire casualties”. It seems to me that it doesn’t make any difference who killed you if you’re still dead!
Hungry people in the woods with guns or bows are a very dangerous thing, especially if they have no experience at it. The sad part is that they will successfully kill off many of the wild game in the area and still face starvation. It’s amazing what any person will do to keep from starving, as morals will be the first thing to go for many of them.
Worse than starving people are the starving children. Most parents will move heaven and earth to keep their children from starving and God help you if you get in their way. So why am I telling you all of this? It’s because you need to know what dangers you could face when it all falls apart and darkness comes.
There will be many groups of unprepared with their own version of why the darkness has come. Religious groups will abound. There will be everything from Rainbow Warrior’s to satanic groups and all willing to kill you for their own beliefs.
Let us not forget the Inner city gangs that will slowly move out of the cities and into the country looking for food, drugs, alcohol and sex. These are groups that are used to getting their way through fear and intimidation. I can’t help but believe that many of these groups will be those of a single race, Black groups, White groups, Hispanics etc. and all looking to control everything they find. Don’t be found!
Now I know that all of this probably feels really dark, but you can only protect yourself if you know what dangers you will actually face. Don’t let yourself believe that you will only be dealing with small groups of hungry people because in many cases they will be large mobs capable of overrunning most groups.
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king! Now you have a better idea of what to expect when it all falls apart, you can be better prepared than most. Well, I guess that’s it for today my friend and I hope to see you back tomorrow. Until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
