Beware of the “Dark Side” of Humanity During any Collapse

While there have been countless books, movies and television shows about life after some type of apocalyptic event, chances are none of us will ever actually be forced to experience what its like trying to rebuild society from the ground up.

All that being said, there is still a burning question … Continue reading Beware of the “Dark Side” of Humanity During any Collapse

Preppers – This Is How Violent the World Was Without Civilization

Statistics and probability alone bespeak of the current situation here in the U.S. and in the world.
